Review: The Underground Committee – The Prophecy

The Underground Committee – The Prophecy is a tight ass album with off da hook lyrics. This is rap music at a new level as each song uses a different style. No one was coming tighter from the South Side of San Antonio than The Underground Committee besides Brown Tribe, Tribe 46, Gino D, and MC Falcon. True Down South rap fans will enjoy this album as these 11 solo artists united to record every song with a different style prepared with distinctive lyrics and unique styles of flowing. The whole album was produced by Lower Than Underground Productions. DJ’s Spanx and Apollo did a bulk of the production. Southern Kumphert produced some songs too.

The purpose of this album was mainly to target local mainstream radio stations because The Underground Committee felt local radio stations were not as real as they claimed to be. So that is why 4 tracks on the album are edited for radio play. Songs from this album were played in constant rotation on 91.7 KRTU. Specifically on Sunday nights at 10:00 PM. The Underground Committee made some noise in San Antonio with this album back in the day.

The album was a great success in the underground scene across San Antonio. The album sold successfully at clubs and carshows in San Antonio and the surrounding areas. 10,000 flyers and posters of the album were distributed and passed out.

“Coming from the South Side of San Antonio” is more than a mere quote from another underground rap group, but is now some sort of chant that is faith fully recited by many in the streets of San Antonio. It is also were Last Hour Records was founded.

World Wide Ride is notable because it follows a slow tempo and slow beat. World Wide Ride samples Teena Marie – Ooh La La La. The song reminisces on those times cruising down Ansley Street and SW Military Drive. The song is alright but not great.

Southern Kumphert produced the song Holocaust which uses a crazy hyphy and dreamy vibe. That is why you can hear Southern Kumphert’s work and sound all over this song. It was his decision to use a dreamy sound. The talent on Holocaust is most undeniably undisputed.

High Risk is known for its brooding chords and notes. Notice how dark the bass lines get. This song uses a Twista style of rapping a at a rapid pace.

I rate this album 4/5****!
