The term 'ratchet' has no less than two distinct meanings. As an adjective, it describes a person or activity that is out of hand, out of control, or generally whack in some way. As a verb, or a direct object ("do tha ratchet, yeah, do tha ratchet..."), the term serves to identify or describe the dance craze--and the movements associated herewith-- of the Ratchet.
"...The President, he ratchet,and Saddam, mane/ His ratchet @$$ ain't have to send them <expletive> planes..."
