Originally created to define someone who is not 'gangsta'. Rotating these words started the phrase 'Gangsta, Not' which sounded very similar to 'astronaut'. Hence, Gangstanaut was created to define a fake thug or someone who thinks they are 'gangsta' - but are obviously NOT.
"Hey Jim, look at that Gangstanaut over there making empty threats to people and pretending he is thug-life."

"Wow Jerry, you're right. He's relatively small too, he must be on some kind of surreal powertrip that he relies on to justify his existence."

"Yeah, that's really sad. Pathetic even. We should really make a rap song about being a Gangstanaut and email it back and forth!"
