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.

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."

Anyone that lives in any neighborhood, and portrays themselves has having more money than they really do is "hood rich". You do not have to live in "da hood" in order to be hood rich. There are a lot of people that live in beautiful homes in the suburbs and they really cannot afford their home. I work in the mortgage industry, and I talk with these customers everyday. There are so many people with homes in bankruptcy and foreclosure. These people are finding themselves back were they started in "da hood" or back on the bus stop. It's about starting small and then growing big. Leave the bling to the celebrities.
If you live in the hood with your parents, have a college degree, work a full-time job,drive a new car, your child attends a private school,you have some money in the bank, but cannot afford a nice home with your income in a low crime neighborhood,then you are hood rich.
