Surely, you've heard our beautiful city of Shreveport referred to as 'Ratchet City?' So what the heck does that mean? For the answer, I turned to Urban Dictionary!

 

When I typed in the term 'Ratchet City' on Urban Dictionary, this is what came up paraphrased for 'colorful' language...

Nickname for Shreveport, Louisiana, home of dat guy Boosie and that guy Hurricane Chris.

According to this entry, I surmise that being known as 'Ratchet City' isn't exactly a good thing. Now you know the rest of the story!
