Deliverance is the second album by American rapper Bubba Sparxxx, released on September 16, 2003 by Beat Club/Interscope Records. It was produced by Timbaland and Organized Noize. The album debuted at #10 on the Billboard 200 with 64,500 copies sold in the first week released.[1] Although this album was only moderately successful, selling around 350,000 copies, it is regarded by many critics such as The Source, Hip-Hop Connection and more mainstream magazines such as Q to be something of a landmark in hip-hop music. The album's main strength according to critics was that it embraced Sparxxx's grass roots, with production heavily influenced by country music and similar musical styles. This influence is evident on tracks such as "Comin' Round" which sampled its chorus from a track by the bluegrass group The Yonder Mountain String Band, leadout single "Jimmy Mathis" which is led by a catchy harmonica tune from the Area Code 615 track "Stone Fox Chase", and "She Tried" led by a washboard rhythm section and a mellow fiddle sound.

Deliverance spawned two hit singles, "Back In The Mud" and "Deliverance". In 2010, Rhapsody (online music service) included it in its list of "The 10 Best Albums By White Rappers".[2] "Back In The Mud" was also featured on the Madden 2004 soundtrack.
