Relearning how to devour new music made all the sweeter with a new album from The Roots. Undun is a concept album from the supremely talented Philadelphia hip-hop act.
The story follows Redford Stevens life and eventual death, a victim of the drug trade. NPR's Charlie Kaplin puts it well:
"Along the way, no verse is wasted, no optimism is spared; each line is like a shovelful of dirt on Redford's coffin. At 39 minutes, undun feels like a lifetime, because it is one."
Hear the album in it's entirety at NPR. Undun is out December 6th.
