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.
'You can all call me a thug, but that's cause I was in the gutter, and I'm still here.' - Tupac Shakur R.I.P.

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.

to be a thug or thugs you must also be a "true" and to be that you have to ALWAYS be true to yourself and not be a FAKE. You have to be true to the people around, you have to be real about everything and come from the heart about everything. A "tru" or "thug" doesnt mean a gangsta, becuause there are fake gangsters and there are wannabe gangsters,a "Tru" is completely real and never fake.

A vicious, violent piece of sh*t scumbag who deserves a good kicking. Lately has come to mean a self-pitying piece of sh*t scumbag who deserves a good kicking.

The reason you should never give someone like this an even break is because they wouldn't cut you any slack either. A thug is not, as wanksta rappers would make out, an innocent suviving in a tough world; a thug is a merciless, violent criminal who beats and kills for fun. It is not a state of being for anyone to aspire to.

Origins: The word "thug" originally refers to members of a Hindu cult forming part of the (South Asian) Indian criminal underclass; it is similar to Satanism only more violent. Also see Santa Muerte.

A slang word commonly used to describe a person ( usually an african american male ). The word relates to a person being "straight up" and "forward". More of a way to express a man thats agressive and somewhat sexy. He gets into a lot of trouble. Usually mistaken as a bad thing and stereotyped. Women commonly use it to describe their partners or describe them playfully.
Girl 1: Damn! He Sexy As Hell!
Girl 2: Girl you don't want him, he's a Thug!
Girl 1: Oh I want a thug!
