"Thugs Get Lonely Too" was 2Pac's first single from his posthumous album Loyal to the Game. It features Nate Dogg singing on the chorus and was produced by Eminem. It only charted at #55 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and at #98 on the Billboard Hot 100. No official music video for the song was ever created. In 1997, Tech N9ne recorded a verse for the song, while living with QDIII, who at the time was putting in work on R U Still Down? (Remember Me).

Original Version[edit]

The original version of "Thugs Get Lonely Too" was produced by Stretch from Live Squad during the Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z. & Thug Life era, sampling heavily from "If I Was Your Girlfriend" by Prince. The title also resembles a track called 'Gigolos Get Lonely Too' by The Time, composed by Prince.
