The Roots – “Understand” Video

By Miles Bowe / May 16, 2014 - 4:49 pm

The Roots recently released their new album …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin and now have a new stop-motion video for the track “Understand.” Stop-motion is so entertaining that the medium usually just sells itself, but creator Joe Baughman adds some thought-provoking imagery by emphasizing money and religious materials (collection plates, bibles, and communion wine) throughout. Watch it below.

…And Then You Shoot Your Cousin is out now via Def Jam. Stream it here.
