Top Definition
Derived from studio gangster, this is an individual who engages in illegal and/or illegitimate activity purely for the perceived "street cred" to be garnered therein rather than financial gain, in contrast to a true hustler who circumvents the established system only discreetly, only when necessary, and only with the the intent of attaining an otherwise unattainable large financial windfall. Often encompassing small-time drug dealers who work the corner all day earning less than they would at a minimum-wage job, most studio hustlers often run their mouths in direct inverse proportion to their income. Also poignant as many studio hustlers reside in studio apartments.
