The Day After Hell Broke Loose is a compilation album released by Rap-a-Lot Records in conjunction with producer Bigg Time.

Background[edit]

Production was entirely handled by Bigg Time, with famed souther hip hop producer and frequent Rap-a-Lot contributor Mike Dean providing mixing, master and drum programming for the album.[1]

The album serves as a sequel to Swishahouse's 1999 compilation The Day Hell Broke Loose, which was also produced by Bigg Tyme. As such, most of the album features songs performed by Swishahouse members such as Mike Jones, Chamillionaire and Slim Thug, though Rap-a-Lot artists such as Scarface and Devin the Dude also appear on the album. The original version of "Still Tippin'" performed by Jones, Chamillionaire and Slim Thug appeared on this album months before the remix with Paul Wall became a hit.

The Day After Hell Broke Lose peaked at 67 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.[2]

Allmusic's Jason Birchmeier gave the album three out of a possible five stars and described the album as "sort of a Houston-style Chronic, albeit one that isn't quite as well developed or thought out". He also added "you might want to check this one out, especially if you're a fan of Rap-a-Lot."[4]
