Technically, The Roots work for NBC. But there's no sense of corporate obligation or directive to promote the winningest band in hip-hop here on Nonstop Sound. Really, they don't need our help at all.
But the band's December 6 album Undun is really starting to get under my skin, and I haven't heard much of it all. To build some tension for the band's 13th release, The Roots are rolling out a new mini-vid every Tuesday. Yesterday marked the third installment of what's starting to congeal as with a solid narrative -- as I imagine Undun as a whole, given it's the band's first concept album.
The new clip, "Stomp," is at the top -- watch from the bottom to get the whole gist.
