The term 'ratchet' has no less than two distinct meanings. As an adjective, it describes a person, usually a woman, or activity, who is out of hand, out of control, generally whack in some way, dirty, ghetto, unattractive, Crucian, or just generally disliked. 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.
A person, usually a woman, who is dirty, ghetto, unattractive, or just generally disliked.

The definition of ratchet has been misconstrued by dumb ass rappers in the 2012 year. Mistaken for "wretched". The real word ratchet was started by a man named Mandigo The King in Shreveport, Lousiana. Ratchet means to be bad ass, real as fuck ,a goon or a ghetto person. The phrase started in 1999. So children, you need to catch up with your "urban vocab". The Ratchet is also a dance similar to The Jig.
