Pro-Obama video features Atlanta's music industry elite — and Yin Yang Twins?

Talk about change.

I never thought I'd live to see the day that Yin Yang Twins would be advocating to get out the vote. HAAANHH?!? But Barack Obama's presidential candidacy seems to have that kind of effect on people — especially African Americans.

Atlanta, aka Black Hollywood, is not exempt.

The new testimonial video Believe. Vote for Change features a laundry list of Atlanta-based athletes, politicians, intellectuals and musicians including rapper Yung Joc, Jermaine Dupri, choreographer/executive DeVyne Stephens, singer Q from 112, producer Bryan Michael Cox, Spelman professor/writer Jelani Cobb, actor Idris Elba of "The Wire," Hot 107.9's Rashan Ali, writer/former CL contributor Ronda Racha Penrice, and yes, one-half of the Yin Yang Twins.

Produced by Condraversy Films and Tycor International Film Productions, the video weaves together black-and-white footage of the artists voicing their support for Obama and discussing the monumental significance of his candidacy.
