If you've stayed in New York City long enough, chances are you encountered a struggling rapper trying to sell you a CD in an attempt to come up in the game (and hustle you). In most cases, they're a reminder to always wear your headphones to deflect attention. You'd have missed DeSean Jackson if you were this dismissive this week.

Jackson, who made the underrated classic "Diamonds on My Neck" featuring Snoop Dogg, hit the subway and Time Square to sell some of his CDs. It's an inspiring display of hustle since he's doing so on New York's coldest day of the week. But does Jackson succeed? Eh. At least he comes off as likable. Check out his endeavors above.
