THE ROOTS: ‘Undun’…. a ghetto symphony… the story so far!

OK… watch out ’cause the force that is The Roots are back on the block with vengeance.  For four Tuesdays up to December 6th, the release date for the heavily anticipated ‘Undun’ album, The Roots are releasing gritty black and white videos that deal with individual takes on the joint. ‘Undun’  is “the story of a kid who is a criminal, but wasn’t born a criminal. He’s not the nouveau exotic primitive “bug-eyed” gunrunner… he’s actually thoughtful and neither victim nor hero. Just some kid who begins to order his world in a way that makes most sense to him… “ and judging by the story so far we can expect a masterpiece, a ghetto symphony that mirrors these troubled times.
