Synopsis of A.W.A. – Synopsis of A.W.A. – A radio signal from a 1990s Hip-Hop Radio station “Rhyme Rider FM” has accidentally been broadcasting millions of miles into outer-space and has travelled through an interdimensional portal to an alien planet called Flurps in the Alpha Centauri star system. The Flurplings, its inhabitants, have built their society around the music, adopting its culture and even worshipping the products advertised in the broadcasts. However, their world is divided by the nefarious Shizzle Shooge, who rules the West Flurpers with an iron fist and seeks to control the entire planet. 

Shizzle concocts a sinister plan to solidify his power by capturing DJ Rodney ‘Rhyme Rider’ Johnson, the source of the beloved radio signal, and using the music to subjugate the East Flurpers. Meanwhile, the Council of Ojeez, tipped off to Shizzle’s scheme, calls upon A.W.A. (Aliens With Attitude)—Wu Pax, Spinstorious L.O.P, and Pell Dogg, to thwart Shizzle’s plans and protect Rodney. 

With their AI robot assistant Bob in tow, A.W.A. embarks on a perilous mission to Earth aboard their spaceship, the Rhyme Rider. As Shizzle and his minions set off on their own journey to capture Rodney, a high-stakes race ensues to reach Earth first and safeguard the future of Flurps. On Earth, A.W.A. join forces with Rodney’s kids, twins Delilah & Reggie and navigate treacherous obstacles, including their new environment, before they confront Shizzle’s & minions before they uncover their true power in order to save their planet and Rodney.
