A gangsta is a person who lives their life to the lowest extent and with the lowest effort possible. Instead of conforming to the 'trade', by working for money, and spending that money, they decide to become leeches, and steal money and goods. Gangstas also partake in the illegal drug trade in an attempt to survive.

The very society that gangstas hate and despise, are actually their providers. If there is nothing to leech off of, they will quickly die out, primarily by killing each other.

Gangstas believe they are tough because they are violent, and can sometimes take a beating. But little do they realize, that the tough people in society are the ones who understand what needs to be done. Society wasn't built by half-wit hot heads.
Signs of gangstas.
1: Loves Rap music
2: Is violent, and extremely short-tempered
3: Has horrible marksmanship
4: Wears baggy clothing, usually exposing their underwear.
5: Very ignorant
6: Usually lives in a bad neighborhood.
7: Speaks Ebonics's fluently.
8: Loves to talk about crime, sex, drugs and alcohol.
9: Uses the word "nigga" in atleast 2 out of 3 sentences,
10: Is obsessed with using the question"You know what I'm sayin'?" at the end of every sentence.
11: Probably has 5 or more children with atleast 3 different mothers, all which he refuses to pay child support for.

Used to be either a italian mafia memember, irish mob member, or russian rob memeber. They used to have families that owned sperate sections of cities. They did not go around killing people for fun, and families would almost never get into fights. If there were ever a fight though, small warfare would literally fought in the streets until a peace treaty was made(which usually both sides would come to their senses soon). They had good reasons, and helped out their fellow nations people. They made money by running rackets, making people pay protection money, etc. They did this too help their people and help their families have a better lives. Now they have more secretive ways of doin buisness and mafia and mob members are rarely cought anymore.

Now the newer term for gangsta is : a lower class person who lives in or near a housing project in the "ghetto". They are mostly black and listen to rap and hip-hop and shit like that. They go around killing people for no reason or over drugs. They have totally fucked up what the mafia and mobs origionally did. They have horrible marksmenship. They preform drivebys on rival gangs and end up killing like 4 kids, 8 senoir citizens, 5 pregnant women and only 1 rival gang member.
The old gangstas had reasons for what they did.

The new gangstas are toally fucked up and kill people for no good reason. If they were to ever get into with either the Italians, Russians or Irish, they would all totally get owned and would die horrible deaths.

Term generally used to identify modern inner-city minority males who are uneducated, on drugs, alcoholic, unmotivated, useless and flat broke. Usually they are covered with tacky tatoos and sport unwashed braided hair which renders them even less employable. On average they weigh 90lbs. and cannot compete academically with an average 8 year old from the white suburbs. Having little or no self esteem, they derive a sense of "manliness" by gunning each other down in cold blood. While this violence helps society by reducing the numbers of this human vermin, unfortunately even aiming a gun properly is beyond their cranial capabilities. Hundreds of innocent school children and employed people with goals are usually shot in the crossfire. Gangstas tend to act tough while stealing cars, snatching purses, shooting innocent children or robbing people with jobs. Strangely once incarcerated, these 90lbs. "tough guys" are rendered helpless without access to firearms or dozens of fellow gang bangers. Usually gangstas end up as an oral/ anal entertainment system for the older criminals.
Tyrone, a true gangsta from the projects, fired over 30 rounds from his cheap Tec-9 semi-automatic 9mm at a rival gangmember named Leroy. Unfortunately Leroy escaped unharmed but 3 children in the playground were struck and killed. Tyrone now cries himself to sleep every night in prison after spending long painful days bent over grabbing his ankles in the shower room servicing older convicted felons.

A playful attempt to put a glamorous face on an aspect of urban life that almost everyone considers unfortunate. The nearest pop culture equivalent would be the portrayal of lawyers on TV.

Pussies, plain and simple.
