Hey, that band on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon makes albums, too! Thoroughly unfuckwitable hip-hop group The Roots will release undun Dec. 6. It's an album that promises to be another wildly ambitious effort for The Roots, with ?uestlove describing it as a concept record that is "band-oriented with an eye on the moody cinematic." The album centers on a character named Redford Stephens, who is "a kid who becomes criminal, but he wasn't born criminal. He's not the nouveau exotic primitive bug-eyed gunrunner like Tupac's character Bishop in Juice ... he's actually thoughtful and is neither victim nor hero," says ?uestlove. A single called "Make My" featuring Big K.R.I.T. will be released on iTunes Nov. 1. [via Pitchfork]
UPDATE: Music blog OneThirtyBPM posted a stream of "Make My," which you can hear below.
