Born and raised in the concrete jungle of the Chicago, Hustle has survived way beyond most of his childhood peers, a fact that lets it be known that he’s more than capable of holding his own regardless if it’s by choice or by force. It is an instinct embedded within his core simply from being a product of Chi-Raq’s inner-city streets. Trained and skilled to make a dollar the best way, he knows how Hustle earned his name from years of being in the drug game, a lifestyle he no longer desires since it’s proven to not only make you a quick bankroll, but to also make you an unwanted guest at a state or federal correctional facility—something Hustle has vowed not to experience again due to just finishing his second stretch behind bars, a journey that has him mentally prepared to build an empire working a regular nine to five up until he’s faced with a decision that’s hard for him to say no to with the need to provide for his kids and wife, who wants him out the street life.
Hustle feels his hand is forced when the opportunity for him to conquer the drug game looks him right in the face, a challenge he thinks he knows too well from living and learning throughout his years. Quickly stacking some money and going legit is something Hustle feels he can do with his eyes closed, which is true until every time he tries to live a normal life, the gritty Chi-Raq streets pull him deeper back in as he finds himself in a war that can only be resolved in one way or another—which is to kill or be killed.
