AllMusic Review by

It's been awhile since No Limit debuted a new male solo artist, and Thuggin' proves to be just what listeners remember from high-profile breakouts like Silkk the Shocker's Charge It 2 Da Game, C-Murder's Life or Death and Mystikal's The Unpredictable. Magic's an excellent rapper, definitely cut from the same cloth as Master P and others in the No Limit family, and a veteran of several of the label's joints already. With the in-house production team Beats by the Pound backing him up on just about every track too, the productions are (to paraphrase A Tribe Called Quest) precise, bass-heavy and just right. Where Magic fails is, predictably, where other No Limit albums fail. The unceasingly similar flow, the dozens of guest spots for all manner of No Limit-affiliated crew members, and the sheer length.
