by Chris Martins

This Chicago MC earned buzz as a sausage-horking, Bob Swerski-esque superfan on his 2006 character-parody album Dennehy. Now he's the target of his own satire, playing a wry Bill Murray-type sad sack in the midst of various untoward scenarios: His deadbeat dad moves back in with him ("Long Ears"), a tryst evolves into exhausting polygamy ("Godammit"), and he blithely admits that he's washed-up as a rapper. Ironically, spitting over minimal head-knock beats from WHY? and Advance Base, Serengeti sounds reborn.
