OG’s they are, yet it’s still crazy to believe The Roots’ are on their eleventh studio album.

Never the ensemble to run short on creativity or ideas, the Philadelphia Flyers are set to drop …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin next week (May 19). The project – with features from Dice Raw, Greg Porn and more – is a concept album focusing on the violence in not only Hip-Hop, but American society as a whole.

Unlike 2011’s undun, Shoot focuses on host of characters and their stories. “We created some of these characters that we kind of see. We as artists, musicians, Philadelphians, New Yorkers, we as black men, we’re familiar with very many of these characters, and we kind of introduce them to the rest of the world in a manner that makes them more easily understood than maybe seeing it,” Black Thought told XXL earlier this year.

Give the album a spin here. Then pre-order it on iTunes.
