His business ventures now include a Halloween costume.
"It comes with the afro wig, the bandana, the 'hide your kids' wife beater, and you get the Antoine Dodson signature paper. You know, so that's hot. So you can be waving your paper all in everybody face like I want my candy, trick or treat, hide your kids," said Dodson.
Dodson said his possible projects include a reality show and a CD.
