Can someone explain to me when the term “hustle” came to mean “business” or working hard?
To hustle to my knowledge means to perpetrate a con? eg “he hustled (conned) me out of my money”.
Every time I see it I just get the most negative connotation, so whenever I’m urged to “get a side hustle” it feels kinda dirty.
I know the English language is fluid and meanings change, but this one is doing my head in!
