1. Hood Rich is sacrifing things you NEED in order to afford/or at least look like you can afford things you WANT. Typical of lower-income society.

2. Projecting an image of success or power that you really have not attained by showing off material goods such as cars or houses in an effort to impress those around you. In the end...in the 'real world' you're still a joke.
1. Driving an $80k Benz, but still living at home with your parents instead of buying your own house or renting your own apartment, that's hood rich.

2. Hood Rich is driving a $100k Benz, living in a million dollar house but still having the majority of society look down on you.

5.
Someone who buys expensive clothes, cars, and eats out at expensive resteraunts, but returns home to a shack in the hood. They usually are in debt up to their ears, and they keep trying to live the affluent lifestyle untill the repo man comes and tows their car.
Most of the people who live the hoodrich lifestyle are black, and the hoodrich car of choice is a Caddilac Escalade with 30 inch chrome rims. All bought with money they don't have. They would rather eat ramen or government cheese and live in a roach motel than have to not have expensive stuff.
"That gilr wined and dined me, we went for a midnight drive in her S 500, but as soon as we came back to her house, i realised she was a hoodrich, her whole house was smaller than my bathroom, and her 3 babies were asking for food.

Adjective. Used to describe someone who doesn't have a job but still, somehow, manages to stay sharp. This often leads to one not being able pay their rent due to all of their money being spent.

One can often identify someone who is hood rich by their quarter tank of gas in their new E-class (whilst still believing that they will ride) and their gator boots with a pimped out Gucci suit.

Typically, one who is hood rich will preach their hood richness, despite having everything in their momma's name.
Winston: "Ah, I am finally able to buy that '98 Civic that I've been saving up for after working 40 hours a week at my summer job."
Jamal: "Ha, you trippin'. I used my momma's credit card to buy myself a Mercedes. Check out them rims!"
Winston: "Wow, thats impressive. Speaking of... can you give me a ride to the dealership?"
Jamal: "Nah, dawg, sorry. I only got a quarter tank of gas in my new E-class; I can't be drivin' around all the time."
Winston: "Why don't you just fill it up? Don't you have a job?"
Jamal: "Hah, nah, man."
Winston: "How do you stay so sharp? More importantly, how do you manage to pay your rent?!"
Jamal: "I'm hood rich, son. I do what I want."
