“If your landlord is hooked on crack…that means you’ve gotta have the rent.”
Dave Chappelle spoke the above wisdom in a 1997 half-hour special on HBO—and it’s a testament to the insane hustle of crackheads.
“Have the hustle of a crackhead, minus the crack,” means simply that you should be extremely focused on the things that matter. Much like a drug addict is obsessed with their next high, you’ve got to be obsessed with the things that matter in your life.
Spouse. Kids. Career. Goals. God.
Whatever it is, chase it with some energy, dammit.
