As used in modern urban conversation, the term refers to a white person who tries to emulate black people in order to appear hip or ghetto.

See also: wigger
Any 15-year old teenage white male who wears his pants down around his knees, wears a sports jersey and gold jewelry, and insists on blaring rap music at all hours of the day and night is a wannabe.

Also, any white person attempting to say something like fo' shizzle my nizzle.

A person who thinks that they have the right to talk about people who they don't like. Most of the time these people can't even say what they want to a persons face instead they say it behind someone's back... or they type it on the internet. When in all actuality they are really jealous of the person and want to be more like them.
There are alot of wanna be's who wish they where more like the clamjabls!
