In case you missed it, this song by The Gregory Brothers is based on a real news report from July 2010. This song apparently made the Billboard Hot 100 at #89, driven exclusively by iTunes downloads alone. The news report shows Antoine Dodson as a hero who has saved his sister from a rapist attack.
While the making of this video may seem to exploit the hardships of people living in “The Projects”, this is mitigated by the fact that The Gregory Brothers are donating 50% of the royalties to the Dodson family.
The report begins with Huntsville, Alabama native Antoine Dodson speaking to a reporter, the music cuts in, and his actual speech is set to music through a software called “Auto Tune”.
