Well, that was fast. After revealing the track list for their new album, Undun, earlier today, the Roots have shared the record’s lead single, “Make My.” The track opens with Def Jam label mate Big K.R.I.T. spitting social commentary-filled bars over the Roots and Khari Mateen’s minimalist production. Following K.R.I.T.’s lead is the Roots’ Black Thought, who too waxes on the troubles of the world and the mind.
It’s a chilling, gorgeously produced tune that perfectly reflects the feelings of confusion and hopelessness running rampant throughout our country. Although, as we reported, Undun, which drops Dec. 6, is a concept album based on the short life of Redford Stevens and not the U.S.’s current affairs. Stream the track below. [OkayPlayer]
