AllMusic Review by

With the title to his 2011 release, rapper Lecrae stretches his “the Christian life is an entrance into rehab" metaphor till it breaks, so think of Rehab: The Overdose as Rehab: The Addendum or Rehab: The Leftovers. Don’t take the latter as an insult, either, because this is a high-quality set of tracks, just ones that didn’t make it on his 2010 album Rehab. Expect the same intense worship and wordplay, but this time with fewer guests, a little less polish, and rough transitions from track to track. Of course, Lecrae’s rabid fan base can’t right click fast enough when a track leaks, and this set gives them the opportunity to hear their favorite wordsmith in more casual surroundings, and offers proof that the magic doesn’t happen in post-production. Not the place to start, but recommended for anyone who devoured the Grammy-nominated Rehab.
