The definition of ratchet has been misconstrued by dumb ass rappers in the 2012 year. Mistaken for "wretched". The real word ratchet was started by a man named Mandigo The King in Shreveport, Lousiana. Ratchet means to be bad ass, real as fuck ,a goon or a ghetto person. The phrase started in 1999. So children, you need to catch up with your "urban vocab". The Ratchet is also a dance similar to The Jig.

A person who thinks they're fabulous but they aren't. They ironically call other people ratchet when indeed they are the true ratchet. They tend to like certain celebrity's like Selena Gomez and Ariana grande because they feel like they will date them one day.
