look up any word, like dirty sanchez:
 
1.
Memphis is a ghetto, 93% black part of Tennessee, that has the highest crime rate in the nation. More homocides, 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, but it is recommended you bring mace, because you are likely to get shot by a Blood, Vice Lord, or Crip member, because all three operate their southern gang heaquarters in Memphis.
Memphis is a shithole.

Not perfect, not terrible. Home of the blues and Elvis Presley, not country music. Makes a mean BBQ. MLK was shot there. Having southern hospitality is necessary if you want to live there. Mud Island and Beale Street are main attractions. Only place that votes Democrat in TN. Dangerous in some areas, but if you stay away from there a very interesting place to be. Sits on a huge fault line. Disease wiped out most of the population a while ago, causing this city the start over. President Obama came to speak to a high school there in 2011.
Man, I went to Memphis, TN for vacation.
Yeah, how was was it?

Cool, not like the stereotype. Didn't get mugged or anything. Real artsy.

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.
