look up any word, like blumpkin:
 
1.
Busting your ass without making any progress.
"I work two jobs and still can't feed my kids..."

"Word? You're hustlin backwards."

you start out with (a certain amount of drugs) lets say a pound, and when it comes time to re-up u are short or have less then when u started, so cant get it so u get 3 quaps instead and so on and so on. with out making progress
You need to invest in your hustle man, stop hustlin backwards.
