The Roots 13th Album Released: Undun
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA

Philly hip hop band, The Roots released their 13th album this month titled Undun, and it's their first concept album.

Undun narrates the story of a bootstrapping hustler in reverse, from death to birth.

The group has also released a short film to coincide with the album, directed by Clifton Bell and telling the story of a young man named Redford Stephens who chooses a life of crime which some call an impressive pictorial story.

The film includes songs: "Sleep," "Stomp," "Tip The Scale" and "Make My."

As for the album itself, it is available on the iTunes Store, and reviews have been largely positive:

“The Roots’ latest is a breathtaking album that proves the longtime band still has some tricks up their sleeve.” (IGN Music)

“Even if you are a seasoned Roots veteran, Undun will challenge you, or any listener. Every line is a clue, every song is a story; each are all pieces to the young Stephens’ tragic life.” (

“The Roots’ latest studio album is an artful melding of experimental jazz, ’70s R&B, guitar rock flourishes, wall-shattering beats and rhymes that take a scalpel to the existential angst of the hip-hop generation. It’s both bleak and unexpectedly beautiful.” (LATimes)
