A person who acts like and believes in their own mind that they are a thug, but have not done anything tough enough to achieve true thug status. Tugs can easily be identified by their neck tattoos, chin strap beards, over-sized clothes, distinct walk (also knows as the tug stride), hoopty cars with over-sized wheels, etc...
"Check out that guy's chin strap."
"Yeah, what a tug!"

People that listen to grime and that are mainly from London would call themselves tugs. This is just like the naming program that other *cultures* use, such as chav, greebo, goth etc. They often like to wear tracksuits and baseball caps - brands such as Akademiks, écko, Iceberg, adidas, nike etc. We are the true Tugs on road these days so fall back all u other minorities...
Tug 1. "yes yes, check out my new akademiks outfit, it looks ill"

Tug 2. "Grime is da best, rock, punk, pop and everyting else is wack"

Tug 3. "what blud, you'll get murked wid my .44 bitch, dnt eva let me see u in my endz again"
