Kenny Dennis EP by Serengeti
Released: Apr 2012
Label: anticon
Serengeti may be one of the most underrated writers of his day, but he has such a jaundiced view that he often hides his best jokes under rueful cynicism. So this odd concept based around made-up rap dude Kenny "Kdz" Dennis sounds liberating. It's a parody of '90s hip-hop culture by rap nerds, from Jel and Odd Nosdam's neo-boom-bap beats and the corny fast-rap "Top That" to a dis of Shaquille "Shaq Fu" O'Neal ("Shazam"). But anyone who digs into Serengeti's deep-dish Chicago-ese accent and sports-talk defense of Steve Bartman ("Don't Blame Steve") will find it imaginative and hilarious.
