As 2Pac defined it '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. '
NOT a gangster,but someone who had nothing,was nothing,and became something.

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

"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.

Orininally a member of an Indian sect ("thuggee") that worshipped Kali and killed people to rob them. Famous for strangulating people. One cult head was tried for more than 900 murders.
The word has later evolved to mean "robber, murderer" in general.
The earliest thuggee account was R. C. Sherwood's Of the Murderers Called Phansigars which was based on interrogations and depositions of thuggees and published in 1820
