A Gangsta is somebody that thinks they can, take drugs, shoot people, and commit murders without a word being said to them. When actually, they have just have there own little messed up lives, living in the 'Ghetto' that they have to take it out on others. This is due to the factor that most wanting to be a Gangsta like the fact of being 'Hard.' Usually Gangsta's are black, but now-a-days white people have come to the conclusion, through rap music that they can be gangsta too.
The Word 'Gangsta' is just a lable for a clique, or a single person.

A so called Gangsta is symbolised by the clothing worn, music listened to and weapons carried or used. In most cases, hats, large gold chains and a 'Gangsta walk' is very impportant in a Gangsta status.
Words such as "Yo, Homie, Nigga, Bruva" are used in the "Ghetto." "I is proper Gangsta like." "Is it coz i is black!"

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.
