Let’s get something out of the way now. “Rehab” is not exactly a song about getting clean and staying clean, though rehabilitation is a major part of the song’s story. Instead, New York (by way of Orlando) artist Wombino hops on this guitar-heavy track to speak on his self-improvement. While trying to be the best him he can possibly be, he still takes time to remind himself that he’s seen hell in some ways; he, like most (read: all) of us, wants to heal and heal properly.
I like the simple approach to the production. I also feel that the sing-songy vocals are reminiscent of Mac Miller’s later work (and you all know that I rock with Mac). “Rehab” plans to feature on Wombino’s upcoming album, along with two other songs from his “Rehab” EP. Color me intrigued, because if the album is as introspective as “Rehab?” You may just see this young man on SOTB again. For now, check out the song below and do the thing that needs to be done for all good music: support dope music in all its forms.
