  • Summary: The latest release from Chicago rapper David Cohen as Serengeti (he also releases albums under the name Kenny Dennis) was recorded with Odd Nosdam and DJ/producer Jel.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 8
  2. Negative: 0 out of 8
  1. Anticon minimalist Odd Nosdam provides all the beats Geti needs, and when your mind wanders, quite often the music alone carries you along.

    On C.A.R., Cohn finds a loophole to get one of those rad concepts out of just that: a depressive who longs for suburban utopia.

    There are no throwaway songs about weed, women or cars here, just 11 separate streams of consciousness, each with subtle lyrical and instrumental nuances.
  4. 70
    There's a positive, loose, and improvised feeling that runs throughout, but altogether, C.A.R. can feel a little unfinished in parts.

    Serengeti's drawling, pregnant-pause- filled flow is one to remember.

    Any fans of mainstream hip hop, probably wouldn't touch this with a 20 foot pole. But fans of Def Jux, Anticon, even some Rhymesayers will definitely see the appeal of Geti's lyricism and storytelling.

    This latest ventures proves equally unconventional [as his collaboration with Sufjan Stevens and his Kenny Dennis EP], the half-hour running time and Cohn's deadbeat rhymes both at odds with the rap mainstream. [Sep 2012, p.111]
