The Roots have a new album coming out next month! Check out the first video, in which they....brutally murder some white guy. Not sure what that's about, but I'm sure they had a good reason. It definitely sounds like they're further exploring the dark, driven, rock sound that they brought to a new level on their last album.
PS. Despite the glibness of my above remark, if I really put some thought into it, I'd say that they're brutally murdering the white guy as a metaphor for black people taking revenge for all the historical wrongs done to them, and choosing to become the oppressors themselves, in a sort of a reverse-apartheid fantasy. Maybe not the most sophisticated political statement, but rather than step into a HUGE pile of shit by analyzing it further, I'm just going to stop there for this morning.
