look up any word, like the eiffel tower:
 
1.
A diva, mostly from urban cities and ghettos, that has reason to believe she is every mans eye candy. Unfortunately, she's wrong.

Typical signs to beware of include, but are not limited to:
-owning a Blackberry
-BLARES anything by Drake, 2Chainz, Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Cali Swag District, or any other garbage entertainment rapper
-rowdily quotes "lyrics" from aforementioned artists
-has a weave reminiscent of a bird's nest after a tempest hit the tree it was in, and is dyed at least thrice
-wears torn leggings/stalkings (mostly of the fishnet variety), unpolished 8" heels (or higher, depending on how God-awful they look), fitted jean jackets (to accent the blubber 'round their arms and stomach), and 4 layers of caked on make-up to go clubbing
-repeatedly use ludicrous terms such as "YOLO", "swag", "boost", "beaking", "doe", "really", "naw", "actually", "twerk", "coaster", "dagga", etc., to make a valid statement when they speak
-have side bangs, despite having incredibly small-ass foreheads to support them
-are commonly overweight
and are mind-numbingly stupid; a safe assumption to make would be saying they're uneducated (as if they could pass the 4th grade)

If spotted, please report to the authorities, notifying them that they are possible smack addicts, or potential, degenerate Chaka Khan look-alikes.
Imagine a woman that wears skinny clothes, bad looking heels & fishnet stalkings, blasts Drake or Waka off her phone, would go out of her way as to cop CD's from these artists, has a bad hairdo, looks immensely disgusting as a human being, and would rather spend her time maintaining her looks, communicating among her folk, and being a jobless, gold-digging bum for the rest of her days, not even bothering to get herself a good shower, a paying career, and a damned effort to earn a diploma.

That, my comrades, is a prime notoriety of a ratchet.

God help us all.

A formally derogatory term denoting a lack of class. One day a bunch of high people decided they liked the sound of this word, and to redefine it to mean something good. What exactly was never specified just that it was good. Seems to work well with the word "absolutely"
Speaker 1 (in response to a nicely rolled joint): "Absolutely ratchet"

Speaker 2: "So after looking on urban dictionary I must know what do you mean by ratchet? All the definitions on urban dictionary are negative seemingly..."

Speaker 1: "C'mon man! It's 2013 bad means good? Keep up keep up"

----------------------------------
Speaker 1: "I like the cut of your jib"

Speaker 2: "Absolutely ratchet"

A person who is characterized as "dirty" or "ghetto". It is another way to describe someone who is trashy. Someone who is ratchet is usually perceived as undesirable and unappealing.
"Hey, did you see that girl walking down the street?"
"Yea! She was so ratchet! Her feet were dirty and her weave was falling out."
