Filmed from 2009-2013 and Featuring commentary from Memphis celebrities Crunchy Black (3-6 Mafia), Al Kapone, Lil Wolf (G-style), Young Jai, and Tarrik Moore (Udig), Memphis Movement is sure to wow you, getting you up to speed on the life-changing value of this historic art form which hails from the Birthplace of Rock and roll and the home of the blues.
