'Hisself' and 'nuff' are not actual words. They are shortened versions of words that are sometimes used in certain dialects. In proper English the sentence would read:
He got himself kicked out because he couldn't cough up enough money to pay the rent.
"Hisself" is the speaker trying to say "his" and "self" together as one word, when really the grammatically correct term is "himself."
"Nuff" is a shortened version of "enough", without the 'e' sound at the beginning.
'To cough up money' is an idiom that means to find enough money to pay someone with. What the person is trying to say is that someone was kicked out of their apartment because they couldn't make enough money to pay their rent.
