THE ROOTS 13th album “Undun” will undoubtedly be one of Hip Hop’s most profound albums to date.
The Roots will release their 13th studio album, Undun, on Def Jam December 6. It’s an overwhelmingly powerful work of art, as ambitious and cohesive as a late Beatles album, but 100% grounded in hip-hop. When Questlove says that Undun should be “experienced as a continuous work” he’s not being pretentious—just helpful. “We want to tell stories that work within the album format,” he expained, “and we want the stories to be nuanced and useful to people.” While each track stands on its own, there’s no way to make sense of this reverse narrative arc unless you start at the beginning—which is to say, the end.
