'Thang' is how 'thing' is pronounced in the southern dialect of the US, by blacks and whites alike. It's stretched out - in the so-called drawl - as "thi-aaang", especially when at the end of a sentence.
The classic "deep-south" accent is beautiful to hear, it is like speech turned to melted honey.
Some of the other regional dialects are not so easy on the ear.
