The Roots "Make My" featuring Big K.R.I.T.

The Roots dropped “Make My," a track off "undun," the group's upcoming concept album. This is some grown man Hip Hop, I don't think the youngsters ears have matured enough to appreciate this.  The group's 13th album hits on December 6th.

"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.
