The Roots – …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin (Album Stream)

The Roots have made their new album, …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin, available to stream in full ahead of its release on May 19th. As expected, it’s a pretty quick listen, clocking in at just over a half hour. The project is a concept album somewhat like their 2011 offering Undun, except this new album features a whole cast of characters whereas its predecessor focused on the story of Redford Stevens.

Black Though told XXL back in February:

“We created some of these characters that we kind of see,” he continued. “We as artists, musicians, Philadelphians, New Yorkers, we as black men, we’re familiar with very many of these characters, and we kind of introduce them to the rest of the world in a manner that makes them more easily understood than maybe seeing it.”

Stream the album over at Pitchfork and pre-order on iTunes.
