"Hustle Anthem"

EvaBlazin`s Hustle Anthem is catchy, kool & sends a message that is delivered in an assertive, empathetic manner... 

The Hustler is not to be discarded, pitied, hated or oppressed... Like any businessman he takes risks, does what is necessary to maintain his home all the while balancing the line that separates legal & illegal – an art form mastered from birth...
