(source: Iceberg Slim – Pimp, The story of my life)

section of the novel that contains the expression:
”I had already driven to Akron and set the stage for her. I had rented a hotel room in a fair hotel. I contacted a dignified looking old ex-slum hustler down on his luck. He spruced up a wino friend of his for the play.”

Background:

Slim prepares a cheating and he rents an old petty criminal to assist him. The old guy is an ’ex-slum hustler’
But what Slim exactly means by that?
