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.

"Ratchet" is basically a female that does or wears the following:
Has a weave that's on the edge of glory and looks like it's about to fall off
Wears tights that go up all the way to their boobs

Wears tight ass shirts that show all of there blubber

Blasts drake, 2chainz, lil Wayne and so on
Uses the phrases: naw, y'all, trippin, da fuq... You get my point

Chews their gum obnoxiously

Claps hands while in an argument

Someone or something hella ghetto. Educated people say wretched but with a ghetto people say ratchet. Tomato/tomatoe, wretched/ratchet.

Ratchets never win spelling bees.

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.
