Album Review

From Ice-T and Schoolly D to Eminem, hip-hop has been full of dark, twisted humor. And there is no shortage of it on Southern Discomfert — this first Epic release by the Atlanta-based hip-hop duo Rehab is an impressive effort full of dark-humored references to drug and alcohol abuse. Anyone who finds Eminem's Slim Shady character entertaining will find in-your-face items like "My Addiction" (based on Run-D.M.C.'s "My Adidas") and "Crazy People" equally entertaining. But here's the tragic part: Danny Boone and Brooks — the white rappers who comprise Rehab — have firsthand knowledge of the type of things they rap about. The MCs really did meet in rehab, and the dark humor that is a big part of Southern Discomfert is their way of confronting their own history of drug addiction and alcohol abuse. So even though some of Rehab's lyrics are hilarious (if you appreciate warped humor), they are no doubt cathartic for Boone and Brooks. Much of the time, this CD is a perfect example of laughing to keep from crying, which isn't unusual for hip-hop — like the blues and country, hip-hop has a history of using humor to cope with things that are tragic. Rehab's lyrics have a way of jumping out at the listener, and the same can be said about the tracks that the duo raps to. Musically, Southern Discomfert is fairly diverse; depending on their mood, Boone and Brooks will rap to anything from funk and soul to hard rock and pop/rock. Both lyrically and musically, Southern Discomfert is among 2000's most memorable hip-hop releases.

Customer Reviews

This Album Is Worth Buying..

I bought this album back when it was released in 2000. I love it! They seem to be getting recognized now.. finally! Its original and amazing.. its funny.. but really thought provoking...

A Different Perspective

This album sloshes around through the eyes of an addict, shunted from the world, and fed up with the same old bull-ish. I fully enjoyed this album, it reminds me of the good ole days when I dind't care about the poison's i was taking and fully enjoyed the ride. Buy the album and lets take a trip through the mental crackhouse that is Rehab.

some great tracks

I wasnt introduced to this album until early 2007 and shortly there after had the chance to seem them live at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC. , crazy sometimes how long it takes for such a creative band to become known and loved so long after their album release. I guess 7-8 years ago the world was not yet ready for them. Happy to see they didnt completely slip under everyones radar and now are here in one of the nations largest forums for all to experiance and hear. By far Sittin At a Bar and Drinkin Problem are my favorites...unfortunate that in the new album released this year that they tweaked Sittin At a Bar and it no longer has that southern discomfort feel, crazy what a little higher Bpm can do, but regardless a great song. This band/ album has a great mix of flavors that can quench any musical palate. I recommend sticking a finger in and sampling a taste.
