variation of chillin
From a reader:
The term "thugging" is not really a variation of "chilling". It's rather a term used to describe the appearance of an individual. For example, the phrase "she's thugging it" denotes that the female has an unladylike appearance, usually that of a tomboy. For a male, as in "he's thuggin it or yo, he's thugged out." denotes a guy who has a very ruff and rugged demenor and appearance. This is usually attributed to his clothes. For example, "Timbs" (Timberland Boots), a gold chain with a large medallion, army fatigues, a stocking cap (women's stocking worn over the head to produce "waves" in the hair), a "do rag" (similar to a stocking cap), gold fronts (a little outdated but still typical of a "real thug"), and just walks around with an "ice grill" (a mean looking face with an unerring stare at any and everybody that passes within eyesight.
I find this sight to be very interesting.
Thuggin is more a verb. To dress and act is a form of thuggin.
