Critical reception[edit]

Allmusic – "...Thugged Out: The Albulation...delivered straight-on, in-your-face rap narratives...Yukmouth's rap lyrics range from the sentimental "Falling" and the expletive-laden "Stallion," to the comical..."[1]

CMJ – "...Yukmouth delivers intelligent, rugged verses over Mike Dean's piano loops and throbbing bass kicks..."[2]

RapReviews – "...Dub the tracks with fat beats like "Ice Cream Man" and "Sad Millionaire"and sell it back..."[3]

The Source – "...Yuk continues the saga at 3/4 the pace, chopping it up with various artists over the Luniz's signature sound of break beats and violins..."[4]
