There's a difference in words: hustle and trappin'
See hustlers find a way out, while the latter can't climb up out it
A hustler and a trapper aren’t the same in Wale’s eyes:
To hustle is to find a way to prevail over obstacles (poverty/adversity) and possibly bringing things back to the old neighborhood
to trap is to remain in the impoverished area (by choice or by lack of means/motivation) and in turn having less a negative effect on the community.
can’t forget the wordplay of “latter” (2nd option of 2) and Ladder (climb up out it)
