(Brooklyn, NY) – Brooklyn heavyweight rap duo A-Alikes (NE$$ & K) release their new music video “Person Of Interest”. This is the group’s third music video from the EP Us Against Them, which is available at iTunes via Hard Boiled Records and Guerilla Nation. The project features appearances from M-1 of dead prez, Divine from The D.E.Y. and Raye 6.
The video for “Person Of Interest’” confronts controversial issues of police brutality and racial profiling of people of color by law enforcement agencies and biased individuals in society. The video focuses on young Black and Latino men who have fallen victim to Stop and Frisk laws and other systematic injustices by authority agencies and individuals in society based on appearance and not actual crime. The video is dedicated to Oscar Grant and Jordan Davis, young Black men who have been killed unjustly by police authorities without just cause or reason as well, Trayvon Martin, an unarmed young Black male who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, a gun armed civilian who suspected Martin of being a criminal based on assumption and appearance and recently the recent death of Staten Island resident Eric Garner, who died after NYPD officers and emergency workers placed him in an illegal chokehold during an arrest for allegedly selling untaxed cigarettes. The video directed by Solace of Buendia Productions
