Top Definition
An affected style of (American English) speech that employs cadences, rhythms, and a style of contractions mostly associated with the following segments of African American culture/demographic groups:
.

1) Gospel preachers
2) Those parodying racist entertainment such as Amos and Andy
3) Gangsta language and cadences

IMPORTANT NOTE: Calling such speech "ghettoric" implies that the speaker lapses in and out of this style, rather than using it exclusively. (If the speaker uses it as his/her primary style of speech, it is probably not an affect, but rather, their manner of speaking
From Chris Rock's bit on General Colin Powell when he was running for President (Look it up on YouTube with the search criterion "Chris Rock he speaks so well".

Non-Ghettoric: "He speaks so well"
Ghettoric: (from earlier the same clip): "He should run...He could win...Co'n P'au'l can't win"

This clip goes in and out of ghettoric,
