a young person anywhere from early teens to mid twenties who partakes in: stealing, tagging, experimental to mild drug use (almost never heavy) partying, drinking, fighting, and menial vandalism. usually indentifiable by sagging pants, hoodies, tattered clothing and a generally "non conforming" appearance.
Delinquent 's arent strictly bad people. like every group they are of mixed individuals, most of whom simply do what they enjoy.

When you think delinquent is a verb in English class and everyone flames you, so you make a dictionary definition for it to feel better about yourself.
STFU Nolan, stop delinquenting.

A dignified delinquent is cultured yet unapologetically authentic.
Even though he arrives to school with trap music playing, he is articulate in front of his students; he’s a dignified delinquent.

Delinquent Habits (a.k.a. Los Delinquentes) is a Chicano hip hop group. Formed in Los Angeles in 1991, they are known for their Latin-tinged rap, which is both melodic and hardcore. Their first album was executive produced by Cypress Hill member Sen Dog and featured guest appearances by Sen himself as well as Puerto Rican New York City rapper Hurricane G. Their second album, Here Come The Horns, again featured Sen Dog as well as Sen's brother, pioneering Latin rapper Mellow Man Ace. The melodic "Merry Go Round" featured the female singer Michelle. The group chose to focus more on hardcore rap on their fourth offering, "Freedom Band".
Delinquent Habits originally consisted of two MCs, Ives and Kemo, and O.G. Style as the DJ. Thus the group was often called "Los Tres Delinquentes" (In English: "The Three Delinquents"). In 1996, the group garnered international success with their first single "Tres Delinquentes" selling over one million copies.
