Any form of organized crime, ranging from Afro-American world-reknown Bloods and Crips, to the exceptionally dangerous Hispanic organization MS-13, to the exceptionally wealthy Cosa Nostra (or Italian Mafia, if you please) to the Yakuza and Chinese Triads, very cruel Asian street gangs, to, finally, the insane (trust me, I know) Russian Mafiya, known for killing people for no reason whatsoever.
1. Bloods + Crips = Gang war
2. (MS-13 dialogue) "Hey gringo, let's go get us some chiquitas and get them in my ride"
3.Mafia; see godfather
4.Yakuzas do cut off your finger if you mess with them
5. Triads do this also
6. JESUS CHRIST! RUN! RUN! They've got a tank!

The equivalent of a frat, except for non-college African Americans.
Why go to college and shell over a brand new Mercedes to feel accepted when you can go to a local ghetto near you and join a gang for free?

A group of individuals who band together and form these clicks, called "gangs". Cal themeselves "gangstas" Not to be confused with organized crime, like the mafia who are "gangsters".

Some well known gangs are Crips, Bloods, Latin Kings, Hell's Angels, etc...

Despite what you will read and hear from suburban people, who say gangstas are total losers without any hope aka "ghetto trash", I have yet to see any of them go to a gang infested area and say that to an actual 'gangsta'.

Because those so called "losers" will not hesitate to kill you if they deem it necessary.
Gangsta: Yo yo yo yo, it's da east side rip ride, BK all day bitch

Gangster(mafia): Say hello to my little friend!!!


Suburban white kid: ugh, such ghetto trash, I must go and shop at A&F now, those new shirts are absolutely divine...

Gang member: what the FUCK, *bam*

I learnt this the other day from a friend in New Zealand, and the word 'gangs' is literally their word for 'cool'.

a bunch of people who group together to be a family.
something most likely truer than what they have at home.
basically to always have each others backs.
theft, graffiti, fights, its the joy of being young in a small and ghetto town.

guy; yeah nigga u noe i gotcha back, we in the gang togetha, we a family.
