My teens are addicted to the show "Empire"... and I recently became an addict... but my kids knew nothing about "Hustle and Flow", so of course I had to school them. lol. They loved it, and watched it several times over. Even my mom who's 63 loved it. This is one of the most inspirational movies of all time. It gives people (who haven't had to struggle) a bit of insight to how things go down in the hood.... The movie captures emotion, exposes weaknesses, and humbling vulnerabilities that you wouldn't typically see, which helps break the stigma most people place on people in that position.
I always get hype when the "Whoop that Trick" song comes on. lol. I can't help it. If you ever want to feel motivated, just play that song, crank it up- and get ready to take on anything! Not to mention, Terrence has always been my star crush since back in the day! He's such a talented, intense, and passionate actor, who made movies like this possible! The movie writers and producers are genius! Still an amazing movie in 2019. The movie cover doesn't do it any justice!
