The word thug has been thrown around loosely lately. I decided to create a video on this very topic to discuss the different meanings of the word and usage. Using video clips and commentary I try to find out who, when, where, and how the word thug is used. In hopes to get a deeper understanding about how words fit into culture and implant the images that are associated with them.
