The Roots latest album Undun came as a surprise. Who foresaw Sufjan Stevens serving as the catalyst for one of The Roots most successful albums to date? Who would have known that by labeling the album a “concept” the band would finally receive the recognition long overdue. This album wasn’t thought rap, or simply “intelligent” hip hop, it was music with purpose. Thing is, we can’t say it was that much of a surprise. This is the Legendary Roots Crew. The Roots have, and always will create music that touches on the elements of story telling hip hop rooted in the essence of jazz and soul. Since 1995, the legendary Roots Crew have been the epitome of underground hip hop. More than a decade and half later with Undun the group has finally received the respect they deserve. Check out The Root’s performance tonight at The Regency Ballroom.
