The hood is a working class area.
It can be an urban ghetto or a suburb. It depends on which country we're dealing with.
In the USA it is primary the urban ghettos that are called "the hood", but in other countries (in Europe for instance) the suburbs is actually the place, where most people from the lower social classes live. The suburbs will be the hood in these areas.
The area does not have to be dominated by apartment buildings to be called "The hood". It is all about the social class of the population.
"Ain't nothing good in the hood
I'd run away from this bitch and never come back if I could"
