FML…

Y’know…you live right, you eat most of your vegetables, pay some of your taxes…and you just can’t catch a break. And then someone like Antoine Dodson comes along.

I’ve blogged about him before but for those of you who don’t know about Antoine , he’s the Ghetto Witness guy…

Had a good laugh at him? Yeah. That’s gonna stop. This is a song (created through AutoTune – the program that allows people like Britney to sing in key) that was mixed shortly after his “debut”.

For every download of the song off iTunes, he gets 0.63 cents. He now has enough money to buy himself a house. And maybe put himself through college. The song also debuted at number 89 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in the US. And Antoine was a guest at the BET Music Awards. He also has his own action figure.

And if you think that’s weird, you haven’t met Mishka.

Her song is also on iTunes. No word on if she’s going to buy a house just yet.

  1. Hey,

    I saw that you are participating in Blog Action Day. I thought you might be interested in our press release about a brand new water treatment technology.

    There are regions in the world where the mineral content of ground water is so high that it is impossible to get non-contaminated water from a well or borehole. For the first time ever a technology is available that can provide communities in these regions with fresh clean drinking water. Here’s the link to the release: http://www.protectorsystems.com/PR-2010-10-13.html

    Have a great day!

  2. I don’t know whether to laugh or record my own track….
    The world has indeed changed.
    The questions are: Is it a better place for empowering every Tom & Dick to be capable of producing videos/films/music and becoming famous? Or have we just opened the biggest can of low-quality worms to munch on?
    Hmmmm….
