"The English word thug, meaning a violent criminal, comes from the Hindi word thag (and originally from the Sanskrit word sthaga), meaning a thief or villain."Back in the 1500's or so ,not really sure about the date, there was a god, in which ladies would come to. They would scarfice items to it, and also cut themselfs and the men would come and still there sacrifics and beat the women and they call themselfs thugs"The original Thugs were bands of roving criminals in India who strangled and robbed travellers. Originally these gangs committed murder following precise religious rites to honour Kali, the Hindu goddess of destruction."

the thug beat the cramp out of me.

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.

A self-proclaimed title for angsty teenage wiggers who think not being allowed to smoke pot equates to parental persecution.
Bryan: Man, I'm a thug. I'm tough man, I have to put up with parents and teachers that hate me. I have to try my best not to conform with the masses. I stick up for my homeboys no matter what. Life in the ghetto is tough.

Jason: You're white. You're healthy and fit. You have a decent home with more than enough food. Your parents love you and will go through untold amounts of trouble to give you a good life. You're just mad because you're rude to teachers and didn't expect retribution. Oh yeah, and you're probably still butthurt about having your bong taken away when you and your idiot friends blazed in the living room.
