look up any word, like fleek:
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 term to describe a person who is ignorantly oblivious to how trashy they are (see ratchet). However, this person is slightly more classy than ratchet, hence the French pronunciation, rah-shay.
"Oh man look at that classy girl in the Prada dress holding her shoes stumbling on her walk of shame. That's so Ratchét."

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!
