NerdsofRhyme Top 10 Albums of 2011 #5 The Roots “undun”

The Roots thirteenth studio album, damn 13 tho!!! was released on December 6th, 2011. Undun tells a story about a semi-fictional character, Redford Stephens. The album gravitates around Redford growing up in an urban setting and  struggling with survival. He is torn between the choice of making something of himself or living a life of fast money and crime, and he chooses the life of crime. A very creative album and musically flawless with potent lyrics from lead man Black Thought this is definitely a classic and a must listen. Songs to listen to would be all of them, this album is like a book so if you miss out on a track your gonna miss a part of the story.
