This song has been stuck in my head for almost a week now. I don’t think I could do the “story” justice, so here’s the basic explanation from Wikipedia:
“Kevin Antoine Dodson (born 1986) is a former resident of the Huntsville, Alabama, Lincoln Park housing project, whose interview on local television became an Internet sensation and resulted in a pitch corrected song with The Gregory Brothers that “has sold thousands of copies on iTunes and appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 list”. The interview that propelled Dodson into fame was prompted by the report of a house intrusion and attempted rape of Dodson’s sister.”
The only bit of information not included in that snippet, which gives context as to why it’s okay to like the song (in my opinion!) is that with the proceeds from the song, Dodson was able to buy his sister a new house!
