Thugs get their money, they've been known to start the occasional brawl, get chased by the police and yes, as the ultimate thug Tupac declares on his latest posthumous track, they need the company of women.

A new Tupac Shakur song called "Thugs Get
Lonely Too" has just surfaced, and on the record Pac struggles with wondering if his girl is faithful to him while he's on the road. His lady love is no more secure; she has misgiving about him staying true.

"It ain't easy being me/ Life of a celebrity is less than heavenly," Pac rhymes before going on to say he was leery about his best friend at his house trying to "mack" his wife while he's on the road.

Hook-singing specialist Nate Dogg comes in on the chorus, singing, "I'm rolling out on tour today/ You getting sad I'm going away/ Chickenheads wanna play with me/ You getting mad 'cause you think I'mma sway/ ... I'll still be getting lonely for you/ I'm coming home soon as I make this pay."

Pac's emotions later switch to anger. His girl must be sweating him too hard, because he unloads by saying, "It seems to me like you're jealous 'cause I'm hustling and making money with the fellas/ ... If you wanna be real with me, be real with me/ If you wanna be fake, move on to the next one."

"Thugs Get Lonely Too" is the first single off Pac's December 14 album, Loyal to the Game, executive-produced by his mother, Afeni Shakur, and Eminem. Em was originally approached several months ago by Ms. Shakur to be one of several A-list producers contributing tracks to the album. According to his label, as Em dove deeper into the project, more of the reins were handed to him and he ended up producing 13 songs, including the first single.

Raphael Saadiq, Red Spyda, DJ Quik and Scott Storch contribute remixes of four Shady-produced cuts. Eminem rhymes on two hooks, and other guests include Jadakiss, Obie Trice, the Outlawz and the G-Unit.
