    From The Online Slang Dictionary:

    ghetto adj 1. of poor quality or poor looking. ("That shirt is so ghetto.") 2. of superior quality, excellent; COOL. ("Man, his s**t is ghetto!") Submitted by Kayla Reilly, CA, USA, 01-12-1997.

    Its totally a matter of cultural perspective. If your from an urban backround and some one referrs to you as "ghetto fabulous", then that can be inferred as a complement. But if you're reffering to something in a different context like a business meeting or trendy yuppie club etc and you call some one ghetto, that is derogatory. Just like many other words and curses, the meaning of the word changes with the context and associations...

    just wondered, i know what ghetto means, seeing how im from one. but i wondered if people were saying it because they thought it was cool or the latest slang. i doubt very much these people even know what makes a ghetto a ghetto, nor have most of them never been anywhere around a ghetto(unless you live right on the other side of the tracks then i guess your close ).

    oooohhhh yeah, gfunk you dont have to be from an urban backround(i like how you said that ) to be ghetto fab

    I recall last month when I first got my Treo some kid walks up while I am going through my contacts and says "Whoa dude that phone is Siiiiiiick" , I smiled and said "Yeah its a Treo 650"

    **Note the phone was not resetting as he said this :-)

    Well...I have been referred to more than once as a "Ghetto Superstar". I am mad ghetto sometimes, but mostly I'm just a thug.
