Eye See Music: The Roots - Undun

Mother Jones sat down with Ahmir Thompson a.k.a ?uestlove and this is how he explained their new album, Undun, that's coming out on the 6th of December 2011

"Mother Jones: So, tell us about Undun, the Roots' new album.

Ahmir Thompson: Shit, you're the first person I'm talking to about this. I'll put it this way: It's our first ongoing-narrative album. In other words, it's like listening to an audio storybook or a movie. The hardest thing about sticking to a narrative is the Tarantino-esque way that we're gonna break the structure. We're trying to figure out, "Well, what if we told the end first, and the beginning, and then the middle?"

MJ: And what's the story about?

AT: That part I'm keeping secret. Where I see How I Got Over kind of introducing the idea of a midlife crisis, like, "What do you do as 40-year-old into hip-hop?" and Rising Down as kind of the American's anger at his government, and Game Theory as a mournful kind of reflection on loss, this story will basically be like the best of those three outlines. And whereas those albums were about us, this album is told in character form.

Vogue Editor’s from across the world united for a special portrait in Tokyo in support of Japan’s Vogue: Fashion’s night out. An especially important location for the event, it’s hoped the evening can play a role in boosting the countries trade after the devastating earthquake and tsunami which struck earlier in the year. Love the shot- it rather reminds us of a class portrait. No prizes for guessing who’s head girl!

Even Though

Even though my lunges are black of inhaling life

Even though I walked the jagged edge of the knife

Even though my mind wanders off more

than I used to then when I was a adolescent

Even though I keep my eyes on the essence

Even though I don’t mind the rain or even the sunny days

Even though I learned to keep more people at bay

Even though I’ve created someone

Even though I’ve created a son

Even though I’ve tasted the poultry

Even though I’m almost 40

Even though I’ve learned from my past

Even though I’m aware that nothing lasts

Even though I’m aware of being part of life’s eternal spinning wheel

Even though I’m crippled by what I feel

Even though I’ve been from black to blue

I’m always yearning to experience something new

Eye See Music: A Phone Call With Hip-Hop



Hip Hop?
What's up?

You're alive!
Can't stop, won't stop.

Thanks for letting me interview you, I know you're busy.
It's cool. I got to take advantage of this opportunity to represent myself.

You're breaking up a little. Can you hear me okay?
Yeah. I'm on a cordless house phone and I stepped out of range for a moment, but I'm back. The reception will be clear as long as I stay close to the base.


What was that? I heard a beep?
I don't know. Probably the Patriot Act. You know they're listenin'.

Everytime I look around, somebody lyin' on me
Mr. Cheney, Mr. Ridge, steady spyin' on me
-Jay Electronica, "Dealing"

I'm joking, the beep was just me putting on some music.

Cool, but speaking of the Patriot Act, why don't you rhyme about stuff like that anymore? Politics and social issues? Chuck D used to call you "the black CNN" but now you're just the--
Hold up, hold up, hold up. Let me tell you something:
