A common driving position in which the driver holds the wheel with his left hand while leaning to his right toward the passenger seat, usually bobbing his head or bumpin' with the beat. It's a pretty badass way to drive. This move works best in a Chevy Caprice or any pimp-style car with a 3-person front seat.
"...with a hellafied gangsta lean, gettin' funky on da mike like an ol' bunch of collard greens..." -Snoop Dogg

Sammy was gangsta leanin' so hard yesterday that his head was partially out the passenger window. What a pimp.

Get the gangsta lean mug.
Clownish activity practiced while driving by illiterate high school dropouts and other social misfits.
Anyone that practices the gangsta lean is proclaiming to society that he anticipates dying at a young age from stray gunfire.
Known to invite cleansing the gene pool by other gangsta leaners that practice alternate leaning styles.
Gangsta leaners often define themselves in simple, cartoonish ways that invite negative reaction, such as wearing tacky costume jewelry that they call bling and wearing pants that are too big so that their underwear shows. The latter is a particularly classless act that publicizes their pathetic attempts at trying to find some individuality in a society that penalizes stupidity and willful ignorance. "Ooh, I'm rebelling against society by expressing myself with my boxers..."
The ex-con practiced his gangsta lean while driving and his pimp walk while on foot. Those pass for exercise programs in the 'hood.

**(GANG-STA' LEAN) / GANGSTA LEAN**
The Official Meaning: Is when you lean to either side of your ride....for "Bloods" they lean -right- / for "CRIPS" they lean left. A "GANGSTA LEAN" is used too: "Show off your RYDE" I.E.: -Hollering at females or too appear pimpish- or "To do "drugs" while driving" I.E.: -Leaning over to take a hit of "WEED" & pass it- or -to reload the clip- or "Out the window too show you ain't never scared". I.E.: -some people duck as too not be seen by others in a neighborhood-. / It also means to some as a place where "Gangsta'z" lay to rest. California was the state where the actual word "GANGSTA LEAN" Originated and was started as a way too drive your vehical too snort cocaine or smoke weed and drink liquor while driving so as too not be seen by the police patrol cars b.k.a: "ONE TYME"!

Adina Howard / Snoop Doggy Dogg / N.W.A & D.R.S - Along with many other recording artist used the word too mean different things too fit with their songs, which caused alot of confusion. TRU'Z know the true meaning which I have listed above....so enjoy knowing the REAL..and keep "GANGSTA LEANIN'" Represent that shytt!!
William Devaughn - said it best in 1974 with the song:

"Be Thankful For What You've Got" it goes: (Diamond in the back, sunroof top, digging in the scene, with a GANGSTA LEAN....woo hoo ooo!!) Now hoo ryde that shytt ....GONE!!

When you take a piss into a toilet at home and you don't want your bitch gettin' up your ass about pissin' on the floor you do a 'gangsta lean' toward the toilet so all the drops go into the bowl.

You can tell who's doing a gansta lean by how stupid they look in there cars. They are almost in the passenger seat while driving. This looks even funnier when the person is driving a crappy car like a Grand Am or some Ricer car.
I saw that kid driving his riced out Eclipse and doing a gangsta lean so I put up my finger for him. He then procedded to turn around and catch up to me by the next stoplight. I then beat his ass down in my American Camaro.
