Pronounced thug-a-bee. Thugabe is made of combining the words thug and wannabe together. Although thug may not be the same thing as a ganster/gangsta, it is usually defined as a bling-bling boy by people who obviosuly don't know the real meaning. Therefore a thugabe will conclude in a person who is a 'thug' stereotypically meaning gangster man, and a 'wannabe,' meaning one who indimidates another, mixed together. This definition of thug has nothing to do with Tupac's version.

Her brother sees his cool friends. All of a sudden the brother starts talking 'black.'

Sara rolls eyes.
Friends: That's the shizz yo.
Brother: Yuh, shizzle my nizzle.
