A life of Pain and Fear followed by a hardened soul. It is not forced on you but made as a young kid in a ghetto who sees all the things your brothers and older friends who you look up to and see that they are gangstas. And once you enter a gang there is no getting out. In addition to watching your best friends die for stupid and pointless reasons, you can never rise above what you have gotten into. A GANG. That is a true gangsta someone who is IN A GANG. Then Through all of this it is glorified to the point where those who recognize the stupidity of its glorification then ridicule the young impressionable kids who joined the gang as illiterate and stupid. For people whove never been in a real ghetto, whove never had to take care of their younger sister when their mom would be gone from the house for weeks, for people who had nothing growing up and were looked down upon by people( for example the people on this site who dont know what they are talking about) its a way to be someone, to live, and survive as a gangsta. But by succumbing to this we kill each other, and keep ourselves from every rising above the status quo. The world would be better if we didnt have to be gangsta's. And to All those kids out in the suburbs pretending, do whatever you want its your choice as long as you do not cause harm to anyone or yourself, you are living in a false reality driven by stories of a life more exciting then your daily routine in your safe boring neighborhood. But as long as you glorify it you are proving yourself to be dissillusioned and have never seen anything besides what is on tv, and music.
J Kwon: I been banging since fifth grade cause my older cuz made so much money, bangin and sellin crack and shit. it didnt take long for my soul to become hard. I hate this life, if i could leave i'd leave and move somewhere where its not like a fuckin war. everyday its like iraq. bam. bam. bam. niggas die, its not fair we do we do this to eachother, little kids been shot, kids 8 years old strapped. kids 9 years old selling crack. kids 10 years old banging. We makin hell worse for eachother, funerals everyday, always ready to die. kids seeing shit nobody should see. then on top of all the pain, all the suffering, once we become successful we use this to exploit eachother, and glorify our pain

A perversion of the word gangster mainly used for latino/black gangs.
Gangsta is also becoming a counterculture of white preteen-teens in middle-upper class areas who want to sound "cool", these are known as Wiggers or Wangstas

a real gangster is someone involved in organised crime, eg the italian mafia. however, townies/chavs refer to themselves as "gangstas" and have no idea about what the word actually means. if they ever mmet a real gangster and acted as they do, they would be assasinated within 3 hours. gansta is also shortened to G. the word is also used to describe something very good/cool ect.
that is gangsta blud!

A Gangsta, is a individual, who is a low life, and regardless of their "circumstances" or "upbringing" still participates in a "gangsta" lifestyle and or behavior. You can not sugar-coat gangsta as a epitome of American living or a badge of honor. It's a disgrace to our Society as a whole and to mankind, when one breaks laws for simply doing so, "introducing" others to said lifestyle...like many gangsta do to up quota into their groups. Degrading women, violence, all these things take a tole on our morals, and not to mention our educational system and economy with High Rates of Crime resulting form gangs, and or "gangstas" and the lives that are destroyed in the process. A gangsta is less than human, a de-evolution in morality and human intellect.
Shugg Knight, C-Murder, Young Buck, these are rappers who went to jail rightfully for doing horrific crimes and paid the price for their idiotic gangsta behaviors.
Other examples are Al Capone, mafias, other crime families, an syndicates around the world, recent Mexican Drug Cartels, all of these an terrorists included are Gang mentality driven individuals who are violent monsters that should be locked away. gangs are scrum.

1) For the idiot who can't spell "Gangster". Usually accompanied by silver painted plastic necklaces, out of fashion and oversized (although they think its unique) clothing.

2) Not to be mistaken for a "Gangster" which is the true form of being part of an organised gang. ie. The Mafia.
1) Guy #1: Yo holmes, chek dat shiz with home boy he is da tru gangsta!!
Guy #2: Yes, that's right Timmy.. That guy is a "true Gangsta" with his bling and baggy clothes, now finish your finger painting so I can change your adult diaper.

2) Sonny: What the hell is this?
Clemenza: It's a Sicilian message. It means Luca sleeps with the fishes.

a dick-sucking bastard who thinks hes tough and likes to murder innocent people, sometimes even 5 year-old children
"gangstas" are stupid cowards who ought to be shot until each and every one of them is extinct

tupac is a bitch and i hope he burns in hell forever

an individual who grows up in a poor area and do whatever it takes to"paperchase". Many gangsta's sell crack,coke,meth,weed,pills,guns and sex to buy all the material shit they never had growing up due to poverty. Often misunderstood many gangsta's dont give a fuck about anything and will solve problems with lethal force, many unintelligent gangsta's do not know how to use a firearm properly and miss many shots however more intelligent individuals such as a literate gangsta who knows how to rap will be more of a problem. most members of the urban community will dress in baggy clothes although lately tighter more fitting clothes have become prevalent. The bottom line is in the end that gangsta's say whatever they want and dont give a fuck about the consequences of their actions.

The individual at your school or neighborhood who thinks he or she is the shit when everyone knows they cleary are not; usually tries to be what the media protrays a gangster to be, a individual who bullies others and thinks he or she is the shit when everyone cleary knows they are not.
