In 2010, after his sister was assaulted by a man who tried to rape her, who would have known that a protective brother’s indignation was going to bring so much joy to so many people? Antoine Dodson, who attacked the assailant, causing him to flee, was interviewed by his local news station where he warned the viewers: “Hide yo kids, hide yo wives, and hide yo husbands because they raping everybody out here!”
After the video hit Youtube it became a hit, and then converted into multiple songs; but it was the one by the Gregory Brothers that really took off. The Gregory Brothers’ song was not only a hit, but actually landed on the Billboard charts. The money from the song, and the merchandising that Antoine did, gave him enough money to move his family from “the hood.” He shot a reality show pilot about him and his family as they adjusted to their new lives outside of Huntsville, but it hasn’t been set to air yet. After being arrested twice (once for marijuana possession and once for violating a noise ordinance) he’s back on his grind and to set to appear in the movie The Chronicles of Rick Roll which is supposed to be released sometime this year.
