Download “Make My” featuring BIG K.R.I.T. on iTunes or Amazon

Video Directed, Shot & Edited by Clifton Bell for www.ghettonerd.com

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.

The Roots undun is in stores Dec 6th, 2011 on Def Jam



  • cold lil video there

    • rap thought

      it wasn’t lil. it was big

    Love the concept of the album and the fact as a group you all stay with real issues plaguing society. Short video, very intense. That just hurt my heart deeply. I assume/conclude from all lyrics the point from these songs, even controversial covers the point is WAKE UP, unlearn, relearn a better way and change. Definitely provokes thought!
