The Roots concept album

The legendary Roots crew take hiphop to new heights with their upcoming concept album, undun.
Each song documents the ill-fated story of the character,  Redford Stephens. Four video installments will be dropped leading to the December 6 release. Here are the first two:

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.
