1. A city located in the very southwest corner of Tennessee. Named after Memphis, Egypt because of its location on a major river. The Egyptian name means "place of good abode". It is the largest city in Tennessee and is THE OASIS OF THE ENTIRE SOUTH.

2. M.E.M.P.H.I.S. - "Making easy money pimping hoes in style". Comes from a popular tradition among the urban youth of Memphis to make acronyms of exsisting words (like Budweiser means "Bitch, you do what ever I say, even run:). This saying was NOT envented by rapper Memphis Bleek. He changed his name to Memphis Bleek after spending time in Memphis.
I she paid my car note 'cause of the M.E.M.P.H.I.S. in me.

Memphis is THE GREATEST PLACE ON EARTH, 93% black part of Tennessee, and DOES NOT HAVE the highest crime rate in the nation (see http://www.morganquitno.com/cit01pop.htm). FEWER homicides, rapes, theft, & kidnappings happen in areas such as the Mall of Memphis, & Orange Mound than anywhere else in the United States. Memphis is the city where "Crunk" was first used. It is the most populated city in Tennessee, & the only one that votes democrat. There are many attractions to visit; such as Mud Island, Graceland, Beale Street, The Memphis Zoo, the Memphis in May Festival, & the National Civil Rights Museum. YOU DO NOT NEED to bring mace, because you are NOT likely to get shot by a Blood, Vice Lord, or Crip member, SINCE NIETHER OF THE three operate their southern gang headquarters in Memphis.
Memphis is an oasis.
