a typically poverty stricken area mainly governed by typical generic retarded people called gangsters who think that they own their "turf" but in

reality people aren't actually afraid of the hood because why live in the hood when you smart and and can move out of the hood instead of wasting 40 years of your life just taking up space on the earth you ain't proving your worth when you act like dirt
a smart dude in order to get to his destination has to pass through the hood
he gets stopped and asked by a thug yall kno where you are boi

the smart dude reply's yeah planet earth and runs them all over in stead of getting out of the car like a dumbass

A place where NOT just African American folk ususally claim they are from but many races. They usually aspire to fantacies of escaping from "the hood" but most will remain. However some actually do manage to escape from this 'hood' through their talents and colleges not thru rap only as others would have you believe.

The hood is not just an area of heavy crime, and corrupt police force. Hoods are not usually owned by organized crime organizations known as Street gangs. Which Street gangs do not always deal in the drug trade, prostitution, and theft (people are just biased).

Hoods are something of all races and cultures including hispanics, blacks, even whites, etc, this hood-mentality has been spread through the increasing popularity of Rap and Hip-hop music, "gangster culture", and the underfunding of the police force allowed by the government.
The hood is a bad place(so they say), where you don't want to be, simple as that(so they say/could be the safest place to be at sometimes). Certain people claim to have knowledge and experience about the "hood".
yet!! In my opinion a person who's never been or ever lived in the hood ,will never know what really happens or go's on in the hood which can be found in any state/city/country burbs/suburbs!
Hello and how are you? I am just 1 person who's left the hood but not because of the music industry, but because I wanted out through hard work and determination....
