Different terminology... But same definition. Anyone who believes there is a broad distinction between the two is a dumbass.

the main difference and it is a major difference, is that a gangster is from a gang of other criminals. Thats the main ingredient in the def. of gangste, you gotta be from a gang. A thug could be in a group or not.

I would think the differnce is one is in a gang and the other is not, but both are criminals.

A gangsta is obligated to a hood, group, gang, clicc, or whateva else u wanna call it...

A thug is somebody that do some of the same stuff hoods do but either solo or like 2 or 3 heads deep but aint got allegiance to nobody...like in the bay its kinda like that

it does mean the same shit in a way but it has its differences. a GANGSTER is a lil more sophisticated and a lil more low key and like said before belongs 2 a gang(or maybe not?). a THUG is more like the independent, more ruthless, in some cases disorganized type. when i see a gangster i think a lil more of a money-maker and a thug is more of the ruffian, end up in the box(4 those that know wut im talkin about) type...

So whats the difference? No difference at all if you ask me. Thats like the difference between a car and an automobile.

nah there is a diff. cause a gangsta gotta be from a gang, he gotta rep a gang. A thug just a criminal that could be on his lonesome, or in a crew, or whatever.

Yea from the terminology, but the outcome is the same.
And even if you look at it closer, both mean the same:

Thug - Thug derives from the Hindi "Thag," meaning a member of an organized criminal ring. This groups is notorious for strangling its victims as human sacrifices for Kali, the warrior form of Parvati, the wife of Shiva, the Liberator.

The term was applied by the British to brutish people who caused trouble by beating people up, as in soccer (football) hooligans, and professional killers and leg-breakers. The term has become synonymous with "gangsta" in Black vernacular.
