The un(dun) app is a companion piece to the The Roots 2011 (Island Def Jam) release "undun". Through the use of photos, lyrics, a series of interviews and music video vignettes, the app provides an immersive experience that elucidates the life and times of one Redford Stephens (1974-1999), a complex youth who struggles to define himself within a troubled inner city milieu and dies in the process.

Ratings and Reviews
Close. No cigar
The idea and purpose of this app is very appealing to the diehard Roots fan. However the app itself is faulty. Typos in the lyrics. Some vids cut short. If you listen to the album and open the app while the music is playing then the music cuts off. The app doesn't do the album justice though it was a decent attempt
I cannot even begin to rationalize why if I'm listening to the album and open this app to read the lyrics, the music turns off. You need to fix this. I'll adjust my score if you do.
Also, why don't the interviews finish?
undun is a fantastic project back-to-front and whether you look at the app as "in addition to" or "part of" you going to want to go ahead and get it.
