Fresh Track: Serengeti “Crush Em”

Serengeti ‘s Saal, released earlier this year, was the emotional peak of his recent three album run started by Family & Friends and followed by C.A.R.  He’s released the albums at a consistent one-per-year pace, but he has found plenty of projects to keep him busy in between Serengeti releases, most coming from his more lighthearted alter ego Kenny Dennis.  His new single “Crush em,” the first from the Kenny Dennis LP being released on Anticon, builds on the sound of 2012’s outstanding Kenny Dennis EP.  In the amazing first verse Kenny breaks down the difference between England and America by listing several examples of things they birthed into existence (“English made economy, America made comedy”).  The song’s spacey production is provided by Odd Nosdam who, along with his partner Jel, produced C.A.R. and both the Kenny Dennis EP and the Kenny Dennis LP.

If you’re an Indianapolis resident like myself, you have a unique opportunity to catch Serengeti’s album release show this Saturday at Indiana City Beer at 9:00.  The show is only 5 bucks and food trucks outside will be serving up some of Kenny’s favorites, brats and chops.  Come out this Saturday, sample some brew, and see one of hip hop’s best kept secrets on the cheap before he heads out to Europe on tour.
