One of our most beloved Kiwi rappers has announced that he is entering rehab for three months, and we couldn't be more prouder.

The 41-year-old Christchurch artist, real name Malo Luafutu, posted on Instagram this afternoon about his decision to enter rehab.

Thank you to all my supporters. Peace & Love. S.

Luafutu's life has been punctuated by addiction, gangs, violence and crime - issues he put on the stage with his brother and father in their play The White Guitar which premiered in 2015.

Scribe says that he will be out of contact with the outside world, no phones or computers so that he can come back better and stronger. It was only last year that he was touring around New Zealand with his brother and father forĀ The White Guitar, a play that shined a light on his tough past.

We wish you all the best with your road to recovery!
