Warriors, Souljahs, the people who are put into the worst conditions imaginable and are still able to survive against all odds and these are the people that will continue to survive when all of mankinds inventions and technology and all that makes modern life modern is gone. While everyone else who has become to accustomed to their pampered lifestyle dies out.

Survival of the fittest
Come into my world and you can see that we iz more then thugs/With just a little twist of harmony we smokin lethal warriors

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.
"That boy ain't a gangsta, fo'sho'. Look at how he walks, he's a thug. life. That's the saddest face I've seen in all my life as a teen."

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.

1.) Criminal, ruffian, gangster...i.e

Those thugs on Wall Street stole from thousands of people by establishing fraudulent corporations under the Enron umbrella

2.) Caucasian slang for nigger, used in cases where upper middle class respectable white people want to express their disdain for what they feel are vaguely frightening black people but don't want to face the social and physical consequences of openly using the word nigger...i.e
.
1.) Those thugs on Wall Street stole from thousands of people by establishing fraudulent corporations under the Enron umbrella.

Those thugs that roam the streets late at night don't hesitate to assault pedestrians and take their money.

2.)I don't like how that thug celebrated in the end zone.

The property values dropped in that community because they had a lot of thugs move in.

I'm not racist, I just don't like the thugs and their loud music.

Any follower of the Indian religion known as Thugge. Traditionaly Thugs traveled through India in small groups sticking to back roads. When they came across travelers they would strangle them with silk scarves and bury the bodies. The Thugs were destroyed by the Brittish military in the late 1800's.
Last week my brother went to town and never came back. I think it was the Thugs.
