A word that people use to call something "ghetto" or the equivalent of "ghetto".

The irony lies in that 95% of the time, a "ghetto" person is using the word.
Person 1: She so ratchet gurl.
Person 2: Oh the irony.

A classless, tasteless female who exhibits some or several of the following characteristics:
1. Has several children with multiple different fathers.
2. Lives off government funding.
3. Excessive drug or alcohol use.
4. Typically promiscous with a general disregard for men that she may be in a relationship with.

Usually these kinds of females were raised in single parent households with absent or abusive father figures. Ratchets can be any race or nationality and are not confined to certain styles or cultural taste.
Male 1: Wow, she is so ratchety she has two kids with two babies daddys, lives with her mom while working part time at marshalls and smokes weed 3 times a day.
Male 2: damn, what a ratchet.

Ratchet commonly refers to somebody who is convinced everyone is attracted to them. Takes an extended period of time getting ready, doing hair and makeup.

High heels and blazers are a staple in a ratchet girls closet. As well as leggings and anything made of chiffon. Use terms commonly found in the ghetto such as swag, yolo, nah, and duces.

Beware of girls named: Jennifer, Candy, Hope, Saxon, and Carrie
Saxon is so ratchet, did you see her blazer today

Ghetto. Ugly as fuck and they think they're hot and stylish yet they wear heels from kmart. They get their baby phat clothes at goodwill. Their weave is so unkempt and tangled as hell. Cellulite body with slutty clothes that are all one color. Basically Nicki Minaj if she was poor and ghetto.
Girl you so raaaatchet!
