Video: The Roots, "Understand"

Check out the band's first video from And Then You Shoot Your Cousin

A few days ago, we announced that the Roots' latest concept album, And Then You Shoot Your Cousin, was live streaming over at Pitchfork Advance. Following our first taste of the album, "When the People Cheer," the most prolific band in hip hop has now released visuals for the gospel number, "Understand." The video makes for an intriguing and aesthetically pleasing experience, focusing on claymation and player-piano keyboards. It's also quite succinct with the song's premise, one that really makes you stop and think about life, God, the universe, and everything. Classic Roots.

Watch it below. Head over to Pitchfork to stream And Then You Shoot Your Cousin or cop the physical version when it drops on May 19th via Def Jam.
