?uestlove told The Boombox
that the group decided to include Big K.R.I.T. on undun
after the group bonded with the Mississippi rapper/producer. He explained: "The process is always the same. There's a social interaction. It's not like we went and looked in the blogosphere to find the hottest mixtape MC. We just happened to be curating these Hennessy shows where we would perform with the likes of a new act like Big K.R.I.T. and also perform with the veteran likes of Chaka Khan or Bobby Brown or Ronald Isley. These were private shows that we did all last year and we did about six of them. Just on a social level we got real cool with K.R.I.T. He would tell us he was a huge fan of ours and that one of his favorite albums was Headphone Masterpiece
by Cody Chesnutt. He was like, 'Yeah, y'all definitely put me on to that when I was kid.'"
Questlove continued: "So when it was time to record undun
it was more like us calling our friend up rather than us calling someone that had some buzz on them. It's way easier for us to collaborate with people who we are in good social standing with."
