Video Alert: Understand by The Roots


The Roots always gives us music that leaves us humming a tune and having food for thought. Their latest single Understand is no different. The chorus alone (seen below) makes you think about the contradictory lives that many of us live:

People ask for God, until the day he comes.
See God face, turn around and run.
God sees the face of a man,
shakes his head and then he says, “man they’ll never understand.

The artistic video for this deep record shows various elements of church including the organ, tithing, and communion. Understand is featured on The Roots most recent album, …and then you shoot your cousin , which you can purchase here!
