Serengeti

(Chicago )
Genre: hiphop

Serengeti is the alias of David Cohn, one of Chicago’s most prolific rappers and artists. Through the course of his career, he has released over 20 albums, each of which occupy a place in a coherent and intricate universe of characters that he continues to develop with each new project. Some know him for his beloved alter ego Kenny Dennis, who created a cult hit in the song “Dennehy,” a track recently remixed for the Chicago Bulls. Others know Serengeti for the deeply personal nature and dark humor of his lyricism, all of which has spurned collaborations with Sufjan Stevens, Yoni Wolf of Why?, DEREK, Advance Base and many others. A Serengeti show is a constant work in progress, as it is a working exhibition of his obsessions with both music and narrative storytelling.
