A mispronunciation of "wretched" that grew to be it's own word and meaning.

A diva, mostly from urban cities and ghettos, that has reason to believe she is every mans eye candy. Unfortunately, she's wrong.

Typical signs to beware of include, but are not limited to:

-owning a Blackberry

-BLARES anything by Drake, 2Chainz, Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Cali Swag District, or any other garbage entertainment rapper

-rowdily quotes "lyrics" from aforementioned artists

-has a weave reminiscent of a bird's nest after a tempest hit the tree it was in, and is dyed at least thrice

-wears torn leggings/stalkings (mostly of the fishnet variety), unpolished 8" heels (or higher, depending on how God-awful they look), fitted jean jackets (to accent the blubber 'round their arms and stomach), and 4 layers of caked on make-up to go clubbing

-repeatedly use ludicrous terms such as "YOLO", "swag", "boost", "beaking", "doe", "really", "naw", "actually", "twerk", "coaster", "dagga", etc., to make a valid statement when they speak

-have side bangs, despite having incredibly small-ass foreheads to support them

-are commonly overweight

and are mind-numbingly stupid; a safe assumption to make would be saying they're uneducated (as if they could pass the 4th grade)

If spotted, please report to the authorities, notifying them that they are possible smack addicts, or potential, degenerate Chaka Khan look-alikes.
Imagine a woman that wears skinny clothes, bad looking heels & fishnet stalkings, blasts Drake or Waka off her phone, would go out of her way as to cop CD's from these artists, has a bad hairdo, looks immensely disgusting as a human being, and would rather spend her time maintaining her looks, communicating among her folk, and being a jobless, gold-digging bum for the rest of her days, not even bothering to get herself a good shower, a paying career, and a damned effort to earn a diploma.

That, my comrades, is a prime notoriety of a ratchet.

God help us all.

Someone or something hella ghetto. Educated people say wretched but with a ghetto people say ratchet. Tomato/tomatoe, wretched/ratchet.

Ratchets never win spelling bees.
My friends Norma and Michael are straight ratchets. They communicate by twerking.

An adjective describing someone (usually female) who acts very hood or arrogant and irrational. They're generally loud and very difficult to reason with and have no respect for anyone's beliefs other than their own, even when they're wrong.
"Earlier, I saw this YouTube video of some ratchet hoe jump on the counter at McDonald's to attack the staff."

"You like her? She ain't nothin' but a ratchet-ass hoodrat"

A person who thinks they're fabulous but they aren't. They ironically call other people ratchet when indeed they are the true ratchet. They tend to like certain celebrity's like Selena Gomez and Ariana grande because they feel like they will date them one day.
Joe: eww your so ratchet
Non-ratchet: umm ok?
Joe: yeah ratchet you heard me

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.
Lil Boosie: Ima a ratchet ass nigga

Webbie: Hell yeah nigga you already know wohdy
