Ty Dolla $ign ft. Juicy J, "Ratchet In My Benz"

You cannot imagine how horrified I am to discover that I have apparently been using "ratchet" wrong this whole time. The shame burns. [Via]

The makers of the video are apparently using limited fossil fuels all wrong, so you may be able to call it even.

What the hell is that? Everyone knows a ratchet is a Jamaican knife carried by rude boys.

Some solace: a "ratchet" is also a handgun, typically (but not exclusively, language being what it is) a revolver. This may mean that "ratchet" is becoming (or has already become) the "smurf"-like catch-all word of a certain subset of the population, in which case there is no wrong way to use it.
