rap•tor (rap-ter)
n.
1. A famous rapper who is angling his career towards performing as an untrained actor in movies. A rapper whose attempt at playing any role other than a thug would be laughable.
2. A music performer turned hack actor; usually relegated to playing some version of his or her music career persona.
3. Any hip hop artist who uses profits from album sales to pay dues to the Screen Actor's Guild. Much like the prehistoric raptor, this subspecies will one day be extinct.
"Fiddy's work as a raptor is almost as disappointing as his work in music."
"At this point in his career to consider Ludacris as anything more than a raptor would be... well... ludicrous."
"Beyonce's work on-screen as a raptor is cringe-worthy."
"The raptors are a pestilence that is slowly squeezing out our potential for finding the next Don Cheadle."

Simple Definition: A generic type of dinosaur that ate meat.

Complicated Definition: Any of a type of Dromaeosaur (a subgroup of theropods) that lived a long time ago and is now believed by most to be extinct, though there are still some potheads (no offense) out there that think dinosaurs are still alive. Raptors had many distinctive features, the most memmorable was a huge claw on each foot used for disemboweling other dinosaurs. The shape of this claw is referred to as 'sickle shaped' so often that it is annoying.

I'm not an expert on the topic, I just did a little research before I posted, therefore, the information herein is not guaranteed to be 100% accurate.
Utahraptors, velociraptors, and Deinonychuses are all raptors.
