A "Wangsta" is a person of any race who is trying to be what they are not. A "Wangsta" says they did something that everyone knows they didnt do or represents something they are not. People say Ja Rule is a "Wangsta" because Mr.50 Cent doesnt like Ja Rule. 50 doesnt like Ja because he thinks Ja reps the hood, but truly doesnt.
