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 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: Oh I want a thug!

a person who has little respect for others, and him/herself. a thug has a below average iq and likes to take part in illegal activity such as, drug dealing/use, fighting, killing, etc. a thug will go to great lengths to protect his "turf," most likely a street corner, or a shitty playground. it's easy to spot a thug: on the corner, pants around the knees, bandana or doorag on head, peach-fuzz goatee and a diamond earing, "tough guy" look on face. a thug loves: money, drugs, 40's, extremely loud rap music, fighting, underage girls, being abnoxious, spray paint, doo-rags, weapons, and grills. thugs dislike: reading, smiles, puppies (with exception to pitbulls), rainbows, led zepplin, and skiing.
a thug likes to protect his turf and act like a badass, they are animalistic in their attempt to become an alpha-male. we can understand this by looking at nba's ben wallace. he personifies "thug" perfectly by his actions on and off the court.
