Released September 28, 2010

As most hip-hop fans did, when Rehab was announced I had my share of doubts and anticipation. With (Rebel) playing in my stereo the past 2 years I was unsure how Crayola could top it, but I was also eager to hear more from the one of the best Christian rappers in the industry. What also increased my expectations was my delayed pre-order package. After several listens, I can honestly say Rehab is some of Lecrae’s best work yet.
There’s a reason this album was, on it’s release date, the #2 Top Hip Hop album & #3 overall on iTunes. From flawless production to the guest artists, Rehab hardly misses a beat. Most of the all, which separates this record from the secular albums on the charts, is the lyrics. As “High” simply states, “Holy Ghost writer to compose my rhymes.” There are two things that bothered me on Rehab: The overdose of guest artists and not enough bangers like the aforementioned “High,” “New Shalom,” or “40 Deep.”
As many other people have said before, Lecrae’s Rehab is another near-flawless album from one of the best in the game. While this will be one of my candidates for hip-hop album of the year, I can only wonder if “Rehab: The Overdose” on 1.1.10 can beat it.
