Thug Life! THUG LIFE!
The closing “Thug Life, Thug LIFE!” lines are a reference to the strength of Tupac’s “Thug Life” movement, in hopes that the Hiii Power movement will be as strong.
Tupac said that, “yes, I am gonna say that I’m a thug, that’s because I came from the gutter and I’m still here. I’m not saying I’m a thug because I wanna rob you or rape people and things. I’m a business man, I mean you know I’m a business man because you find me at my places of business.”
Some may say that the “Hiii Power” is the child of the “Thug Life” movement.
Kendrick claims that when Tupac visited Kendrick in a dream he told him: “Keep doing what you´re doing.Don´t let my music die.” So that´s the reason why HiiiPower and Thug Life are so similar.
