Serengeti brings a sharp satirical bent to Dennehy – adopting a few personalities throughout the album – easily making himself one of the most distinctive lyricists on the Chicago scene! Our favorite voice (of several) that Serengeti adopts is a 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
, Tom Skilling, Tom Berenger, Minute Rice, Joey Cora (and other non-Cubbie Chicago sports figures you've never heard of), naval-gazing emo kids, O'Doul's and Ricobene's. 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 (remix)".
(A Chicago indie hip hop classic – finally on vinyl for the first time ever!)
