When he's not pimping hoes and selling drugs in Memphis, small-time hustler DJay (Howard) tries to get his life together by making music. The problem is, pimpin' ain't easy, but it's a helluva lot easier than getting fools to listen to an actual demo tape in 2005. They don't got CD burners in Memphis, playa?
