Troubled rocker Pete Doherty has hailed his recent collaboration with hip-hop star MIKE SKINNER and his group The Streets "better than rehab". The Babyshambles frontman worked with Skinner on drugs track PRANGIN' OUT earlier this year (06), and was so inspired by the subject he even added a frank verse of his own. Doherty brands the combined effort one of the most therapeutic experiences of his life, coming after court convictions for drug possession and several stints in an exclusive London rehab centre. He says, "It was better drugs counselling than a month in The Priory. It's probably true. "And it was a cracking tune as well."
