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.

Alot of people have their own version of what it is to be a thug. 2pac has his own but from his music and even they way he behaves isn't a good example despite the fact he says a thug is someone who's had it hard and became something. Young people are going to mimick him no matter what he does, this is the same guy who spat at the press, so what message are you sending to your fans and what a thug is. Spitting, saying fuck new york, fuck biggie, that's why i fucked yo bitch you fat muthafucka. 2pac was crazy, you can like his songs but dont worship the songwriter, they are human just like you. A thug and I'm being real is what it sounds like, a robber, a crook, a drug dealer, conniving, scum, a petty murderer. The word orginated in India which means a bunch of robbers from india who strangled their victims. Now rap music has gave it a whole new meaning, people are automatically thugs just because they smoke weed and their from the hood or just cause their in a gang, or just cause they sell drugs even though the might say not say it directly because the rappers are perceived as thugs so what ever they do is thug shit to young people. In their mind a thug is someone who has bitches, can smoke purple to the head, wears conrows, shot people who disrespect them which could be in the form of a reality check, Mimicking this fake thug mentality will get you an early grave or jail guranteed.
He was a thug because he robbed people

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.
