a person who lives in the ghetto or public housing with no intent to make it out of there. A hoodrat is usually unemployed and won't seek employment because they instead chose to live off of government assistance, child support payments, and food stamps. They often have unplanned children with one or multiple "baby daddies", some of which end up in jail or simply run because of their mistake. Food stamps are often spent on Flammin' Hot Cheetos. Any money that they do have gets spent on Ciroc.
Joe: Are you a hoodrat?
Loran: No, a hoodrat is a person who lives in the ghetto or public housing. I live in the suburbs!
Joe: I stand corrected!

A person, gender non-specific, who uses the low income nature of the ghetto for their own self defined reasons. The 'hood' nature of this noun can refer to clothing that is contemporary to urban culture. Hooded shirts or coats have a definitive logo nature to the fashion of these people, but in no way means they are definitely wearing a hooded piece of fashion. The rat aspect of these individuals can refer to their self centered need to gain either material or social gains. Scurrying through cultures taking anything they can to obtain a status that means something to their center of the universe mentality. Can be verb-a-tised to refer to their actual actions. Nationality and ethnicity have no bearing on who can be called a 'hood rat'. Wealthy or poor, hood rats can easily be spotted by their actions but hard to spot sometimes because of their ability to disguise and hide behind actions and objects obtained by being selfish and cruel to others.
Example: Paris Hilton is such a hood rat.

Example: I can't believe that hood rat keeps doing heroin and turns in other people into the police so he/she can get paid to keep doing heroin.

Example: If that dude keeps hood ratting, I'm gonna bounce on his world. Time to tune that hood rat up with my own hood ratability.

Example: If I were a hood rat I wouldn't have to ever work again because I will always have a way to screw anybody who gets in my way.
