?uestlove On The Roots' New Album (Video)

During a brief conversation with MTV at Jay-Z's recent charity event, ?uest gives a little more detail on what we can expect with The Roots thirteenth album, UNDUN, dropping December 6th via Def Jam.

It is our first concept album. Mostly, our albums are thematic, but this is our first album in which it's an actual narrative, so sort of like a movie without visuals; kind of like a storybook record.

Most rappers, poverty leads them to whatever the public determines and it really prevents them from being real artists, because a lot of artists I meet are like, 'I wish we could be like y'all... We just create music on our own accord.
