When someone's income is either illegal, or they just have more money than others in their neighbor "hood". They can afford a luxury lifestyle, but have a hood life mentality.
i.e... Big Time Drug Dealers

Hood rich is not living on welfare or having low income or not having your own. If that was the case it wouldn't be called hood "rich".

You can afford an upscale lifestyle, but don't have the legitimates to completely live the lifestyle

Anyone that lives in any neighborhood, and portrays themselves has having more money than they really do is "hood rich". You do not have to live in "da hood" in order to be hood rich. There are a lot of people that live in beautiful homes in the suburbs and they really cannot afford their home. I work in the mortgage industry, and I talk with these customers everyday. There are so many people with homes in bankruptcy and foreclosure. These people are finding themselves back were they started in "da hood" or back on the bus stop. It's about starting small and then growing big. Leave the bling to the celebrities.
If you live in the hood with your parents, have a college degree, work a full-time job,drive a new car, your child attends a private school,you have some money in the bank, but cannot afford a nice home with your income in a low crime neighborhood,then you are hood rich.

Hood Rich Is Where A Person That Lives In A "Lower" Society Has Lots Of Flashy Expensive Things That Most People Of That Class Only Dream Of But Still Aint "Made It". Can Also Be Someone Who Has Lots Of Things Only Rich People Have But Are Not Techniqually "Rich".
For Example: If You Hood Rich Then You Live In The Hood But Got A Ride Sittin On Rims That Cost More Than The Car Or Gotta New Escalade/Charger On 24's Or More But Use Most/All Their Money To Pay For It.
