REVOLUTIONARY HIP HOP ARTIST LECRAE RELEASES REHAB DELUXE NATIONWIDE TODAY THROUGH REACH RECORDS

Back with the final installment, Lecrae offers Rehab Deluxe, which includes the Grammy-nominated Rehab, Rehab: The Overdose along with previously unreleased tracks and short film documentary

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (September 27, 2011) – Today, Reach Records’ Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist Lecrae is releasing the newly-formatted REHAB Deluxe. In this latest installment, Lecrae offers Rehab Deluxe, which includes the Grammy-nominated Rehab, Rehab: The Overdose, previously unreleased tracks and a documentary chronicling Lecrae’s life and story of rehabilitation. In conjunction with the re-release, an exclusive offer is also available nationwide at Target this week featuring  REHAB Deluxe at $9.99 which includes two additional songs (Finally Free ft. J. Paul and Hope ft. Coffee).

The new package features the smash “Hallelujah” and encourages listeners to keep pursuing Christ who brings freedom from our past experiences and present struggles.  An album full of conviction, REHAB Deluxe features new powerful songs like “Wish it Wasn’t True” and “Jesus Muzik Dubstep Remix by Karac.”

The 4th project for Lecrae, REHAB is a straight up call to conviction in real life through its unique style and lyrical content. Lecrae gets support from Sho Baraka, Trip Lee, Tedashii, Pro, J.R., Benjah and many others along the journey towards restoration–with several memorable collaborations. PK, CheeseBeats, J.R., and Benjah contribute on production and sonically, help take the listener along a soul-full ride.

“My hope is that people will not just gain practical insight for their lives, but they would find real sympathy from myself and mostly in the High Priest who sympathizes with us—Jesus,” says Lecrae.

Having established himself as the frontrunner of Christian Rap, Lecrae returned in 2010 with an album whose influence extended into mainstream media and culture.  REHAB, arguably his most heartfelt album to date, broke into the Billboard Top 200 Albums debuting at No. 17, while reaching No. 3 on the Top 10 Albums chart on iTunes. With an offering of rehabilitation found in Christ alone, Lecrae also maintained his established base, reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Contemporary Christian chart and No. 1 on the Billboard Gospel Albums chart.  The impact of this album continues to spread across the globe, receiving nominations for several awards including a Grammy for Best Rock/Rap Gospel album.

With the influence of his groundbreaking album REHAB continuing to expand, Lecrae is gearing up for a nationwide tour in support of the new release. The REHAB Tour, featuring performances and also new music from label mate Trip Lee, emergent CHH artist Thi’sl and newcomer C-Lite, is an eight-city tour and will be kicking off in Indianapolis, IN on September 29, 2011.
