Apparently MW also noticed the Uber radio ads that tout Uber as "the
ultimate side hustle".

It's odd to me that the crossover of hustle & hustler from AAE to common
vernacular isn't highlighed, although implied. The Hustler (1961) is a
gimme. It's likely both were already in wide use in the 1950s. I haven't
looked that closely.
