Serengeti, “Amnesia”

Blake Gillespie

Serengeti

Serengeti's old pal Kenny Dennis, aka Tha Killa Deacon, is a good-hearted midwesterner who's willing to share his rap contacts as long as Geti doesn't get the retired Shaq on a track. Kenny Dennis linked Geti up with Odd Nosdam and Jel for his latest album, C.A.R.. The first track off C.A.R. is “Amnesia”, which boasts a humorously timed Slick Rick loop, “and who the fuck are you?”, as the amnesiac response.

Is Geti wishing for amnesia in order to see a brown-eyed girl anew or is he borrowing fellow Chicago legend Common's “H.E.R.” metaphor? In his wishes to split up in order to “stop horsing around” and “start getting somewhere, maybe”, it leads more towards the latter. In all the curveballs Geti has thrown over the years, keeping us curious as to where he's coming from, the layman's acronym set against hopes to leave rap forever is possibly his most honest sentiment on record. 2012 marks a decade of records for a man who's been a campaigner for rap's disenfranchised. While Jay-Z can't leave rap alone, out of hubris, Serengeti deeply wishes he could just run a food truck, but his fool's love keeps him stuck in a lop-sided relationship.
