The Roots released the first single off their forthcoming concept album, undun, that chronicles the life of one Redford Stephens.
According to OkayPlayer, ?uestlove said “Undun is the story of this kid who becomes criminal, but he wasn’t born criminal. He’s not the nouveau exotic primitive bug-eyed gunrunner like Tupac’s character Bishop in Juice… he’s actually thoughtful and is neither victim nor hero. Just some kid who begins to order his world in a way that makes the most sense to him at a given moment… At the end of the day… isn’t that what we all do?”
Seems like quite the story, and indeed, something we can all relate to. The album is set to drop December 6.
Big Sean began his first headlining tour Sunday, kicking things off in Asheville, North Carolina. See Sean look at some of the merch for his tour, goof around with his friends and some concert footage.
Hear Kendrick Lamar narrate regarding his mindset towards creativity and the new song he did with producer Nosaj Thing. He touches on the “techniques and skills” he knew he must have in order to be “the best artist he could possibly be” as well as sharing his experiences from across seas with his friends back in Compton.
