Hell With the Lid Off was released on Nettwerk Records. It has a heaven-and-hell theme to it; the name of the album is indicative of such a theme, and track titles repeatedly mention such topics as God, heaven, and angels. The songs themselves are often about mental illness, UFOs, voodoo, and violence; the comic delivery and tongue-in-cheek lyrics put this far outside the norm for a typical Nettwerk release. The album is sample-laden, and has a hip hop feel to it, though it shares little with that genre either.
The title of the album is taken from a sermon by child evangelist Marjoe Gortner whose voice is sampled on the song "A Place of Loneliness."
