Its a pretty good city south of Detroit. Contrary to popular belief on this site, its not full of gangsters and skanks, but has respectable people. There are however people who think they are gangster living in Wyandotte, but the average person knows that they are just poor and trying to act cool.
Person 1: Dude I was talking to this gangsta from Wyandotte. He was so hood.
Me: Shut up. Anyone living in Wyandotte is not hood. He was probably someone who moved here from Ecorse or River Rouge and is living in a rental house.
(noun) Someone who portrays inherent characteristics which exemplify his/her upbringing in a dangerous, and often gang/drug infested neighborhood. Someone who is hood is unlikely to be controlled in hostile situations, and may often act in ways which make the appear as uncivilized to people who aren't hood. Often can be synonymous with the word ghetto
Damn, you cant invite T-O to this dinner, he's too hood. He'll probably eat with his hands, curse anyone out who stares at him for that, and be totally uncontrollable.
A more gangsta version of a Hipster. Exemplified by listening to rap, ghetto mannerisms, and occasional gangsta speech but still retains the apparel and sensibilities of a Hipster.
Hipster 1 - "Man, what's up with that guy?"
Hipster 2 - "I don't know, he's like one of us...but not"
Hood Hipster - "Fuck yo couches BITCH!"

1. Hood Rich is sacrifing things you NEED in order to afford/or at least look like you can afford things you WANT. Typical of lower-income society.
2. Projecting an image of success or power that you really have not attained by showing off material goods such as cars or houses in an effort to impress those around you. In the end...in the 'real world' you're still a joke.
1. Driving an $80k Benz, but still living at home with your parents instead of buying your own house or renting your own apartment, that's hood rich.
2. Hood Rich is driving a $100k Benz, living in a million dollar house but still having the majority of society look down on you.
The Hood is the part of the city where you grew up.
