    ok i agree with diddy here. a job is a JOB. PERIOD! Be proud of what you do for a living if it puts food on the table and a roof over your head. Take pride in everything that you do!

    How does this make them hustlers , if anything they just need to get out to pursue and show their talent but I didn’t see know hustlers here just ordinary people working just like the rest of us or I guess that just makes all of us hustlers

      true, most people are hustlers. if you can keep a job and make ends meet you are a hustler, because for many, that’s not an easy feat. i’d consider these celebs hustlers because they found a way to make ends meet AND pursue their dreams, successfully. that struggle is REAL (not to diminish the hustle of a 9-5). some people give up on dreams and settle on just making a living. so yea, a job is a hustle just like a dream is hustle. so anyone doing BOTH no matter what the dream is, is hustling.
