This is the 'cool' inner-city pronunciation of gangster and indicates a wannabe attitude, i.e. trying to look tough when you're not.
Them gangstas think they all phat and shit, cuz they got the bling-bling, but they stole all their shit from their mama's boy friend, who, by the way, REALLY is a gangster.

Gangster/Gangsta A Gangster is a member of a professional crime organisation, such as a gang or a mafia group. Usually, members of the mafia or similar organization are referred to as mobsters while individual high-scale criminals who participate in mob-like activity or members of a small criminal enterprise are referred to as gangsters. There can be overlap, however, such as in the case of Dutch Schultz, who ran his own independent gang yet also worked as part of a coalition of Jewish mobsters aligned with the Italian mafia. Anyone who believes gangsters are always black couldn't be more wrong black people had nothing to do with gangsterism untill gangster rap, for instance famous gangsters (The Kray Twins, John Gotti and Don Vito Cascio Ferro)

Gangstas are usually white but can be black.

Not necessarily a neanderthall but someone who does what they HAVE to do, because of loyalty, beliefs, etc. Gangstas do not pertain to one race because it is more of a cultural concept. And you don't have to be dumb to be a gangsta, but you have to be brave, smart (if you want to survive as one) and bold.
Little ass Tom fought that big dude cuz he was comin at his sister. He lost, but he's still a gangsta for standin up to him.

A "gangsta" A.K.A. a "G" is one who had to commit illegal and or offensive acts for the sake of surviving, despite if he or she wanted to do it. If one does such an act(s) and has other options, then he/she is not a gangsta.

Although the term is often glorified in Hip Hop, Rap, and Pop music and culture, a real gangsta will tell you it's not a life you should WANT. Most people who never lived or know the life are often misled to the term being a good thing.
He lost his job and was forced to sell crack, just to put food on the table for his family this week. That's gangsta.
