South of Hell

South of Hell is the third studio album by underground rapper Boondox. It was released on May 11th 2010. Produced by Mike E. Clark, the album also features a documentary directed by Paul Andreson about Hutto's life and the making of the album titled Southern Bled.[2]


Boondox collaborated with producer Mike E. Clark, who produced all of South of Hell. Clark completed the album's music in his Fun House Studio.[3] Boondox felt more comfortable writing and recording the vocal tracks in seclusion, resulting in Clark moving the production to a cabin in the woods that he owned.[3] Boondox wrote the lyrics by setting up large loudspeakers in the cabin and writing the lyrics while Clark played the unfinished tracks through the speakers.[3] Clark describes this method of lyric writing as being "pretty scary [...] it definitely affected the music a lot".[3]

Music and lyricsEdit

According to producer Mike E. Clark, the lyrics were strongly influenced by the album's unusual production, and the seclusion of being in the cabin in the woods, describing the album as "music to get murdered by".[3] The lyrics of South of Hell strongly derives from country music themes, touching on "love gone bad, family issues, and internal struggles with vice".[1] The music combines elements of country with hip hop beats and funk-derived grooves, and includes live instrumentation, including slide guitar and banjos.[1] "We All Fall" features the use of Auto-Tune.[1]


Kik Axe Music reviewer James Zahn gave the album 3.5 out of 5, writing that "Boondox is at his best when keeping the south flowing throughout."[1] Zahn describes "We All Fall" as the album's weakest track.[1]
