A-Alikes - Explode [Music Video + Release Info]

If you don't know much about A-Alikes, I can tell you this much: They're a lot like dead prez, but I've always thought of their style as injected with a little bit of (old) Mobb Deep's grittiness. Anyways, A-Alikes have got a new documentary/soundtrack project out titled The Ballot or the Bullet. The documentary will have a featured film screening in the Bronx, NY on June 1st by Rebel Diaz. They've also got a mixtape on the way, so be on the lookout for that as well:
A-Alikes is also set to release a new mixtape with DJ Victorious on June 14th titled The Hustle and the Hunted Part 3. While many of the new mixtapes out now have an array of features, A-Alikes keep it classic with artists relevant to their music. I.G. is featured along with production by Hedrush, Checkmate, UK producer Baby J, and DJ Butta who also produced “Explode.”
