Originated from within the early ghettos of Los Angeles in the early 1990's. When the rap and hip hop culture became famous among teens. Most claimed to be gangsta when infact, they were nothing more than scene kids, some stayed with the fad, others moved to newer fads such as the "emo" scene. Originally was created by the African Americans later was adopted by the Native Americans and later by Hispanics.

Broken down contraction of: Wack-Ass Gangsta

Usually white, wearing " gangsta " clothing brands and most likely grew up in a above middle class neighborhood. Though most claim to grow up in the ghetto side of the city, 99% of them have never seen a REAL ghetto. Most Wanksta's claim to be gangbangers or thugs when in reality, they are nothing more than kids who are attempting to rebel against something their parents didn't want them to do.

Sadly, most Wanksta's think it's cool to be a gangbanger. In reality, most REAL gangbangers wish they werent in the situation they are currently in and probably will always stay in.
I am a gangsta, I grew up in the ghetto. My parents didn't get me that "I-POD Nano" for christmas, nor those 200$ shoes. I don't wear baggy pants, I don't say "nigga" or talk like a fucking retard.

A "wanksta" is a very basic word meaning a person who acts/looks like a gangster or thug, but has never done anything gangster or thug-like besides acting or looking like one. It can be towards any race or ethnicity. The word does NOT imply a WHITE guy acting black.
Al Capone is a GANGSTA - white guy
Ja Rule is a WANKSTA - black guy

Fake gangster, hustler or faking on anything that involves doing dirt.

never went blood or crip hunting.

only when photo ops are around they quickly throw up gangsigns and meanmug like they gangbang when they don't.

They like to act hard all the time. but when you confront them. they be like "nah dude. nah dude."

somebody who drives around in a rent-a-car luxyry car and prentends to own it. and act like he hustles.

always flashing huge wads of money in public. but in reality its his laundry money hes going to use that day. etc...
You need to stop that wanksta ass before you really get litup fool.

Someone who doesn't live in the ghetto who tries to be hard by attempting to intimidate everybody, sagging there pants to their knees(literally), and talking like they dropped out of school in pre-school. I don't see how wearing expensive, feminine clothes(that they're mama bought) makes you hard.Most the dudes probably take longer to get ready in the morning than their mothers.
My suburb is full of dudes who's families obviously have more money than I ever will, go around discriminating against ppl who aren't molding into society like they are and they think they're pimps b/c they got a new Roca Wear shirt on clearance at JC Penney's. For more see poser and feminine
