"A setback is just a setup for a comeback." --from Bebe Moore Campbell's "72 Hour Hold"

How about this: "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" from the movie "Hustle and Flow" has been nominated for an Oscar. This was the movie to see this past summer.

The category that the song received a nomination for is Achievement in music written for motion pictures (Original song). The songwriters, Jordan Houston, Cedric Coleman and Paul Beauregard, have a one in three chance of taking home the Academy Award since there are only three nominees.

The question is: will the song be performed during the Oscar telecast? Wouldn't that be a come up for hip hop...?

I failed to mention that Terrence Howard received an Oscar nomination for his role in the movie, but I thought that memo had already been circulated.

Also, check out this interview with Howard from NPR.

Nice post. I'm looking forward to reading more, and it would be a real come up for hip hop if that performance takes place on national tv.
