The Roots lead emcee Black Thought had already revealed And Then You Shoot Your Cousin will be another concept album. The group’s 2011 LP Undun was also a conceptual release.
“It’s not just about just one kind of character, we create quite a few different characters in this record,” said Black Thought. “It’s satire, but in that satire it’s an analysis of some of the stereotypes perpetuated in not only the Hip Hop community, but in the community.”
