The Roots – Tip the Scale (Video)

Here’s a new song and video from The Roots upcoming undun album.  The video is part 2 of 4 depicting the story of the album’s subject, a character named Redford Stephens, who dies an unfortunate death at the age of 25 (click here for part 1).  The album is sounding (and looking) like it is going to be one of The Roots’ greatest works, yet.  Check out the video and The Roots’ description of it below.

Here’s what The Roots had to say about the video:

“undone is the story of this kid who becomes a criminal, but he wasn’t born criminal. He’s not the nouveau exotic primitive bug-eyed gunrunner… he’s actually thoughtful and is neither victim nor hero. Just some kid who begins to order his world in a way that makes the most sense to him at a given moment… At the end of the day… isn’t that what we all do?”
