I see a lot of definitions for "Scrub" but not many are right. Sure everyone has heard that song "I don't want no scrub, a scrub is a guy that cant get no love from me, hangin on the passenger side of his best friends ride, tryin to holla at me, etc etc." However this isn't an accurate description. A scrub refers to people who have a combination of these characteristics: Poor, cheap or ghetto clothes, little friends, not with an "in" crowd, grungy, grimy, dirty, ugly (in a lot of cases), has no job or car (also many cases), at the bottom of the food chain, uses drugs (also very common), often hanging out in the streets, criminalistic personality (often), a loser, hangs out with shady people, etc. Now I've seen many scrubs of all shapes, sizes, and colors but most of them have been white (not trying to be racist or stereo-typical at all but there's sometruth in it, i myself am white.) There's plenty more qualities but to put it in simple terms without having to list all the traits, scrubs are human rats. It's not a bad thing though schouldn't be viewed as bad but scrubs are most commonly at the bottom of the food chain aside from underground scenes, criminal scenes, large cities, etc. This is what gives the scrub a bad name. If this offends anybody know this though, I myself am a scrub and I'm damn proud to be one. Why? one may ask? Because being a scrub doesn't mean you're not cool or aren't good looking or even dirty and poor etc. Being a scrub just means you know that you're one of socities' many rats and not meaning a snitch, that just lives a different lifestyle that has been given a name. That's all. That's all the knowledge ya need to know to understand what being a scrub means.
