A hustla is someone skilled at turning a profit no matter what the enterprise. Commonly used by rappers to describe a drug dealer, but it's also a street term used for pimps or anyone who makes money illegally on the streets, it can also just mean that you are getting a lot of money by doing what you do best.
To put it in its simplest terms, a street hustler is an individual who is all about money. They're straight "paper chasers" - they'll do anything and everything they can to get to that money. Most street hustlers sell dope, with a few miscellaneous money-making schemes on the side. However remember, development is always key. Don't start it off by selling kilos of drugs or tons of guns or whatnot. Start it from the bottom. Dedicate yourself to it. Start it from selling rather small amounts of drugs on corners, around Red County, clubs, etc. Make connections, make profit. Once you make profit and develop your character a bit buy bigger supplies, start selling in bigger amounts. And so on.
Starting out at the beginning of your characters future career as a hustler, you could roleplay selling stolen watches and chains to the people around your hood, or to passers-by. It's good and unique roleplay and you may also even earn good money if your RP is good and if people like your roleplay. You need to sweet talk to people, persude them, make them like you and be interested in hearing what you got to say and offer. Don't just approach people and offer them jewelry and watches. Make it interesting for both parties involved in the RP scenario.
Sooner or later as you develop your character you will get in contact with drugs. After you've sold a sufficient amount of jewellery, you can then transition onto purchasing small quantities of drugs and selling them at a slightly higher price.
So you start off with small amounts of drugs until you make enough profit and buy bigger amounts. With bigger amounts it's bigger profit. When the time comes to purchase your drugs in big amounts you'll need to have connections with good and reliable suppliers. When you have that, you're on your hustle as a real G.

What kind of drugs to sell?
Well, this is up to you and your character. As a real hustla you will need to decide by yourself with what type of drugs you can make bigger profit. That has to be your decision. You can stick to one type or sell various types of drugs.

Where to stash your drugs?
Until you get BIG enough stash of drugs you don't need to have two different stashes.
As soon as you get big enough stash and if you don't want to risk it you need to have two stashes for drugs.
One, where the most of your drugs will be.
Second, where the drugs for the daily use will be. Here you will hold small stash of drugs that you sell daily. And when it's empty you go to your first stash to take drugs and refill it.
So, two stashes, two vehicles (let's say two faggio's). One for big stash, one for the small one. Make sure that the both are well hidden when you spawn them so people can't see you easily when you go to get the drugs.

Where to sell drugs?
The best thing is to start selling them on corner around your hood. If you don't have your hood, go to pizza stack or in a gang deprived area in order to avoid any unnecessary altercations.

Club's are a great place to sell drugs, however you'll need to be sneaky enough to move your stash past security.
Gun dealing is very similar with drug dealing, but it involves bigger amounts of money and bigger profit.
The only had part of gun dealing is finding a supplier if you're not in an offical faction that has access to guns.
Drug dealing is mostly related and envolves around RP, while with the gun dealing you can make much bigger and easier profit. Don't get me wrong, there is good RP around the gun dealing too, but drug dealing RP is better imo.

How to sell guns?
Finding customers for guns is rather easy and it requires less time and patience than selling drugs.
All you gotta do is to approach a group of gangbangers and offer them your services. Almost everyone on the server needs guns and they will be happy that you came. But don't trust anyone and be caution because you can easily get robbed.
Don't be one of those people who takes the money from the customer, quickly drives to his stash, takes the gun, drives back and hands it. No. Be unique. Be different.
Now, being a PIMP is really interesting RP. There are a lot of people who are hungry for e-sex and that would pay a lot of IG money for the services of your hoes. The only hard part about it is to find loyal and active hoes because most of the people that RP hoes quit that character when they gain enough money or are faction hoppers and go from another pimp to another one if you're not online when they are.

First thing that you would want to have is a brothel or just an apartment where your hoes can bring customers. It would be very good if it could be /furnished in a unique way, not only with basic interior because it will add a lot and improve the atmosphere of the whole RP.

Second, are the hoes. They will be hard to get but if you know how it wont be a problem. The problem will be their activity and loyalty.

How to get customers?
Customers are easy to get. You can drive around with your hoe in your car and ask people around or make your hoe post on a corner while you watch over her from a distance. When someone comes to your brothel make sure that you frisk him to check if he is armed or not. If he is armed RPly take his gun (you will give it to him back once he is done).
Before the customer gets it with hoe, you need to make sure that he pays first for the service, not after it.
So, as we all know, every plug has a plug, so you're going to need one too. Unless you're a leader of an illegal faction and got your own product, which you are probably not, you will need a plug.
During your role play and business you will meet a lot of people and will make connections, depending on your character's personality and behaviour. You will also meet some powerful people that can be of a good use to you. As a drug dealer you don't have unlimited amount of drugs that come out of nowhere, you need a plug.
By meeting the right people, you can make good business.

Doing business with a plug.
When you finally meet someone who can become your plug the most important thing is the approach and your capabilities to negotiate.
You should be careful and watch for the words that you are using in that conversation, but don't be too soft.
You need him, but he needs you too. He's not doing that to help you, he's doing that because he sees profit and benefit.
Don't let him use you as a puppet.
And before meeting the plug make sure that you go there unarmed so you can gain his trust.
Your character's personality and behaviour depends mostly on you and your choice.
Your character should be reliable, resoruceful and intelligent, not some brainless - triggahappy - troublemaking gangbanger. He needs to be smart and to act smart. That does not mean that he has to be a pussy, no, he only needs to use his brain so he could make smart decisions. Your character should be able to do everything for the right price and profit.
He needs to be tough, but shouldn't front anyone with bad or weak reasons. Don't be too hasty, think about your actions, but don't let anyone to badmouth you, show them who the boss is, unless you're heavily outnumbered. Be realistic.
Real hustla would involve himself in anything that would bring him a good profit no matter what the enterprise is.

What should your character drive?
On the start of your hustle, if you start it from the teen years, than you should have no car, you can have a bicycle if you have the BMX rights. If you don't have BMX rights than it doesn't matter.
As you hustle more and earn money, grow older, you should get yourself some lame ass car. Best choice would be a clover or a glendale/greenwood for start. Later on as you progress and sell bigger quantities of drugs/guns, you should get yourself a better quality car like a tahoma or a savanna, for example. After you start making big deals you should consider of getting a huntley, rancher or similar high standard ride. Later on you can customize them with some shiny rims.
High standard car choices depends on your character's style. It can be something classy like a feltzer, something gangsta like a huntley, or a sportcar like an alpha.

Where should your character live?
Well, for the teen years you should roleplay living with your parents (or at least with one of them/or with aunt/or similar), as a poor family. After your character grows up you should move to some apartment in poor, gang controlled neighbourhood so he can start living on his own.
Or you can roleplay that you're parents died and that you've inherited their poor house/apartment. Don't start your hustle roleplay by living in some rich/fancy place. Start it from the bottom if you want to feel the real struggle and hustle.
Later on as you progress and make some real money, you can buy and decorate an apartment/house to suit your character's life and his developement.

What should your character wear?
At the beggining of your hustle, as a young and poor teen, you should wear some worn out clothing with no jewelry what so ever. After you gain some money and get a bit older you should roleplay wearing better looking clothes, nothing fancy and some fake jewelry, like fake silver chain and/or fake silver rolex.
/ame looks down at his fake silver rolex and checks the time.
After you start selling big amounts of your products you should start wearing some quality clothing, depending on your character's style and real silver jewelry.
Once you get on the top of your hustle you should start wearing expensive and flashy gold jewelry (chains, watches, earings...), but only if your character likes to show off in that way.
