Rehab is the fourth studio album by rap artist Lecrae. It was released on September 28, 2010.

Production and releaseEdit

In early 2010, Lecrae had been planning to name his next project "Rehab" although he had doubts about the name, mainly because Eminem released an album of a similar title. Despite this, Lecrae stuck with the original name, because "it made too much sense to not move forward with it."[1]

On August 3, 2010 Lecrae released a song on Rapzilla called "Amp It Up" which features Tedashii.[2] Originally thought to be the first single of Rehab, Lecrae revealed on his Twitter that it WAS a theme song for a Christian camp called Kanakuk.[3] A video was posted via Rapzilla on August 19, 2010 of Lecrae rapping a verse from the song "Walking on Water".[4]

lecrae was in Southern Sudan at the time of the album's release so the "distractions of my life are stripped away and I'm left to focus on Jesus and his mission." He states that he won't be looking at the iTunes charts on which his album will be. On his blog he encourages his fans to not only buy his album, but asks them to donate to causes in Sudan and provides a link for them to do so.[5]

On September 22, 2010 Rapzilla reported that the Rehab packaging comes with an advertisement which directs buyers to purchase another upcoming album, to be released on January 11, 2011, called Rehab: The Overdose.[6] The whole Rehab album was revealed via a listening session on September 26, 2010 on Rapzilla. Lecrae also talks on the video about the concept of the album.[7]

The tracks "High", "Just Like You" and "Children of the Light" have been released as digital download singles on the iTunes Store.
