look up any word, like thot:
 
1.
As Tupac defined it, a thug is someone who is going through struggles, has gone through struggles, and continues to live day by day with nothing for them. That person is a thug. and the life they are living is the thug life. A thug is NOT a gangster. Look up gangster and gangsta. Not even CLOSE, my friend.

To be a true thug doesnt mean wearing "bling", listening to rap and talking "black". Being a gangsta isnt superficial.. To be a true thug means you havent had it good your whole life, and you intend to change that, and get out of the ghetto if thats where you are, you do whats right, you dont take shit from anyone, and stand up for your friends and dont let them take shit from anyone! You dont have to be a stereotypical "gangsta" to be a thug, a skater can be a thug, a nerd can be a thug, a hick can be a thug, a prep can be a thug, and old ass man can be a thug! So forget your stupid fucking stereotypes and thinking that everybody has to fit into one group, and be labeled. And i'll tell you what... Damn it feels good to be a gangster!
Tupac Shakur and Earl Simmons are true thugs.

Alot of people have their own version of what it is to be a thug. 2pac has his own but from his music and even they way he behaves isn't a good example despite the fact he says a thug is someone who's had it hard and became something. Young people are going to mimick him no matter what he does, this is the same guy who spat at the press, so what message are you sending to your fans and what a thug is. Spitting, saying fuck new york, fuck biggie, that's why i fucked yo bitch you fat muthafucka. 2pac was crazy, you can like his songs but dont worship the songwriter, they are human just like you. A thug and I'm being real is what it sounds like, a robber, a crook, a drug dealer, conniving, scum, a petty murderer. The word orginated in India which means a bunch of robbers from india who strangled their victims. Now rap music has gave it a whole new meaning, people are automatically thugs just because they smoke weed and their from the hood or just cause their in a gang, or just cause they sell drugs even though the might say not say it directly because the rappers are perceived as thugs so what ever they do is thug shit to young people. In their mind a thug is someone who has bitches, can smoke purple to the head, wears conrows, shot people who disrespect them which could be in the form of a reality check, Mimicking this fake thug mentality will get you an early grave or jail guranteed.
He was a thug because he robbed people
