Serengeti's should-be legendary Dennehy – one of the smartest, funniest and (still!) freshest indie rap LPs of the first decade of the 00s! Firstly, it's made up of sharply-focused, sometimes hilarious, always hyper-intelligent rhymes – both satirizing and celebrating working class Chicago neighborhood personalities – over solid beats and production. Our favorite (of several) distinctive personalities Serengeti adopts is Kenny – quintessential southsider with a deez-and-doze delivery and a propensity to wheeze neighborhood institutions with a dead on precision that you might not fully appreciate if you haven't lived south of 26th St – but there's much to love for anyone who digs unique, lyrically-centered hip hop. The set features production by Midas Wells, DJ Crucial, Emynd and others – cats who find ways to match strong beats to eccentric rhymes about Brian Dennehy, the movie Critters
, Chicago weatherman Tom Skilling, VHS era movie hero Tom Berenger, Minute Rice, Joey Cora (and other non-Cubbie Chicago sports figures you've probably never heard of), naval-gazing emo kids, non-alcoholic beer and heavenly neighborhood food dive Ricobene's. A leftfield hip hop masterpiece! Tracks include "Critters
", "Feeding", "In's And Out's", "Dennehy", "Ipod", "Lineage", "Meth", "Love You But", "Derek", "Go Paint", New Dodge", "Derek In Paris", "The Neeg", "Ozzie Guillen" and "New Dodge". First ever vinyl version – with the bonus, previously unreleased Beautyman EP!
(A Chicago indie hip hop classic on vinyl for the first time ever – with "cloudy transparent & opaque black" vinyl.)
