Memphis, United States
I am from Memphis, TN. I know that a lot of the world relates Memphis to music...mainly due to Elvis Presley, The King. A little help from the blues, B.B. King & Beale Street as well as Sam Phillips and his Sun Studios and I understand why people might think that it is a musical type of town. Maybe it is, but I really feel like if you wanna hear various types of non-commercial music or unusual for the masses types of music or something besides the status quo, you have to look outside of Memphis...waaay outside of Memphis. The home of 8-Ball & MJG, 3-6 Mafia, Playa Fly, Skinny Pimp, and various other notables in music are all still from the Bible Belt. It is still the South and outside of the location, we are talking music...the enigma that is made from the minds of creative people and then picked apart and scrutinized and put into categories designed to keep a very real and serious voice of not only the musician but also the listener from being creative. Ironic.
