A "wanksta" is a very basic word meaning a person who acts/looks like a gangster or thug, but has never done anything gangster or thug-like besides acting or looking like one. It can be towards any race or ethnicity. The word does NOT imply a WHITE guy acting black.
Al Capone is a GANGSTA - white guy
Ja Rule is a WANKSTA - black guy

Fake gangster, hustler or faking on anything that involves doing dirt.

never went blood or crip hunting.

only when photo ops are around they quickly throw up gangsigns and meanmug like they gangbang when they don't.

They like to act hard all the time. but when you confront them. they be like "nah dude. nah dude."

somebody who drives around in a rent-a-car luxyry car and prentends to own it. and act like he hustles.

always flashing huge wads of money in public. but in reality its his laundry money hes going to use that day. etc...
You need to stop that wanksta ass before you really get litup fool.

Wanksta is a wannabe gangsta. Anyone who wants to be a gangsta is pretty lost! Even DMX and Tupac didn't enjoy gettin shot and chased by cops! You dont have to be black to be a Gangsta. And being a Gangsta doesnt mean your Black. Be proud of your colour and your culture. The fight is not on the streets but against those who break our Peace.
"Tired of gettin shot at. Tired of being chased by the police and arrested" --- Tupac A. Shakur

everyone already seems to know so screw it.
In the case of "50 cent" there seems to be some disagreement, however "Ja Rule", to be sure, is widely considered to be a prime grade Wanksta.
