Joseph Edgar Foreman [born July 29th 1974], a cousin of George Foreman, better known by his stage name Afroman, is a Grammy-nominated American rapper who came to prominence with the release of 2001's RIAA Gold-certified album 'The Good Times'. The album spawned his two biggest hits, the double-platinum 'Because I Got High' and 'Crazy Rap'. He was born and raised in Palmdale, California, but later relocated to Hattiesburg, Mississippi; tales of time spent in both locales are depicted in a multitude of his songs. Since his major label debut, he has released an extensive catalogue of material and is often on the road touring.
'Because I Got High' is a comical novelty song by Afroman, about how cannabis use is degrading his quality of life. The song explains how the author has failed his college class, missed court dates, had his paycheck garnished due to missed child support payments, gambled away his car payment, is left masturbating after not having sex with his girlfriend, is paraplegic as the result of a police chase and is now homeless "because he got high". The song, which was released in 2001, reached No.13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No.1 in the UK, and is Afroman's only US top 40 song. The song also gained popularity in other countries, such as Australia, where it was No.1 for three weeks. This song appears on the soundtrack of [and is the theme song of] Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and the music video for it was directed by Kevin Smith and features Jay and Silent Bob smoking with Afroman, as well as a glimpse of the Quick Stop where Clerks was filmed. The majority of live pre-watershed playings of the song on television and radio exclude, scramble or bleep out the lines directly relating to drugs, oral sex and masturbation.
