Person 1: His ass is just Hood Rich.

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.
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.
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."
