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.

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 English word Thug is derived from the Hindi word Thuggie

Thug and Gangster, or "gangsta" as the kids spell it, is not different than any other word for a Hoodlum or street urchin, thief, etc. Thug, in proper context is a degenerate and someone who disregards the law or moral code for monetary or social gain. represents the worst part of society when not checked. Thugs may be "placed" into this type of life by "circumstances" above there own, but ACCOUNTABILITY at a certain ages is usually a wake up call to future actions. If that said individual beyond the age of 18, continuing in a "thug" manner is no fault but His/or her own. This is America and there are schools, trade schools/after school and weekend programs for just about every facet of young adult life that can keep most kids off the street, the few that continue do so under their own will, they only have their selves to blame and us taxes have to foot the bill to keep them in and out of prison.
There is no excuse to be 'thug' in 21st century North America, this lifestyle has been glamorized too much in Rap/Teen and Urban mainstream music and media. Honest Hard work, good upbringing or good morals can be obtained by most Americans, this is from a 26yrold Black Male. Be a Positive and not contribute to the aimless negative of society.

"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."
