A-Alikes film "The Ballot or the Bullet" produced by Paul Biedrzycki is set to release on October 30th. The film follows the NY rap group A-Alikes over the course of the three months leading up to the 2008 Presidential Election. While each political party has built their platform on the theme of "change", A-Alikes specifically address what type of change individuals want to see in America. A-Alikes speak with figures such as Chuck D, Joy Bryant, Rosa Clemente, M1, Umi, and Immortal Technique, asking the question, "How do oppressed people gain freedom: through participation in the political system or through armed rebellion?
A-Alikes will also release a 4-song soundtrack, which is seamlessly integrated into the film and inspired by current events. The lead single, "No Savior" delivers a different perspective to the current political structure, focusing more on self-empowerment versus the worship of political figures or historical icons.
