"undun is the story of this kid who becomes criminal, but he wasn't born criminal..."
So begins the eleventh album by The Roots, "UNDUN", a modern rhapsody of urban blight and how a disfranchised generation need to do in order to survive. Only a few other bands that could, The Roots invoked emotions with a twist of nouveau hip hop, R&B, and poetic story telling through the eyes of Redford Stephens, the fictionalize protagonist of the album. In similar fashion, director Clifton Bell of GHETTONERD transcript the lyrics into black-&-white video timelines of Stephens' life from 1990 to 1999, thus gives viewers a montage of a life worth saving from all the vices except its already too late... "UNDUN" by The Roots is now available for purchase.
