The Roots are burning it at both ends. Somehow, between their regular weeknight gig on Fallon, backing Betty Wright on her new album, and releasing their own rather excellent How I Got Over just last year, The Roots have managed to record undun, a concept record that releases December 6th.
Always among the most cerebral of hip-hop acts, their latest in their own words "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.'"
Earlier today the band introduced the fourth and final teaser video from undun rolling up to the release date. Directed by Clifton Bell, "Sleep" follows the previously released "Make My," "Tip the Scale," and "Stomp," all of which flow into the next in what The Roots are calling a "ghetto symphony." Watch all four clips here.
