Editors’ Notes Beginning with a beeping flatline and ending with a four-part instrumental suite, Undun tells the tragedy of Redford Stevens—according to ?uestlove, a character who’s “young, gifted, black, and unraveling”—in reverse. Juxtaposing Black Thought’s bittersweet bars with indie folk, the group’s tenth album encompasses wordless, heart-wrenching Sufjan Stevens samples (“Redford [For Yia-Yia & Pappou]”) as well as the poignant boom bap of “Make My,” where, alongside Big K.R.I.T. and Dice Raw, Black Thought raps, “If there’s a heaven, I can’t find a stairway.”
