The Roots Perform ‘unDun’ songs with Bilal on Jimmy Fallon (Video)

The Roots – Stomp (Video)

The Legendary Roots crew drop another video from their upcoming album “undun” as promised. The Roots continue to drop a new video every week until the album is released December 6th.

The Roots – ‘Make My’ (Video)

First video from The Roots new project undun. This song feature Big K.R.I.T. Very dope visuals and song.
undun is an existential re-telling of the short life of one Redford Stephens (1974-1999). Through the use of emotives and Redford’s internal dialogues the album seeks to illustrate the intersection of free will and prescribed destiny as it plays out ‘on the corner’. Utilizing a reverse narrative arc, the album begins as the listener finds Redford disoriented–postmortem–and attempting to make sense of his former life. As he moves through its pivotal moments he begins to deconstruct all that has led to his (and our own) coming undun. – The Legendary Roots Crew
