“Tip The Scale” (Video)

    As we reported when the Roots issued the visuals for “Make My” last week, the Philadelphia crew is releasing one video each Tuesday leading up to the Dec. 6 release of their new album, Undun. Therefore, it’s no surprise that we now have the visuals for “Tip the Scale.” The video comes with an introduction outlining that the record tells the story “of this kid who becomes criminal, but he wasn’t born criminal.” And in the visuals below for “Tip the Scale,” you see exactly what that introduction means as the album’s protagonist, Redford Stephens, walks the tough streets of his neighborhood. It ain’t pretty, but it’s sure as hell well done. [OkayPlayer]
