Thug Life Biography
Thug Life is an American hip-hop group. Originally, The Notorious B.I.G. was supposed to be part of the group, but the latter chose to join Puff Daddy’s label, Bad Boy Records.
Thug Life was founded by the rapper Tupac in 1993, alongside Big Syke, Macadoshis, Mopreme, Rated R, and Stretch2. On September 26, 1994, the band released their one and only album titled Thug Life: Volume 1 on Interscope Records. The album was ranked 42 on the 2004 Billboard and certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, notably, thanks to its flagship titles Pour Out a Little Liquor and How Long Will They Mourn Me, two tracks in tribute to their fallen friends. In 2011, the album had 500,000 copies sold in the United States.
In 1995, while Tupac was imprisoned, his producer Suge Knight, boss of Death Row Records, got him out of prison by paying his bail and in return made him sign a contract for the production of two albums under his label. Tupac Shakur had plans to make an album, Thug Life: Volume 2, however, on September 7, 1996, while in a car with his producer Suge Knight, he was assassinated, riddled with bullets, leaving a Mike Tyson’s boxing match in Las Vegas, before he could execute this project.
According to Tupac, « T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E. » is the acronym for The Hate U Gave Little Infants F***s Everybody. Tupac had drafted a “code of life” with former members of the Black Panther Party following the dissolution of their party, Thug Life, supposed to help people living in ghettos. This “code of life” does exist; he was found by the United States police during an arrest of Tupac at his home.
