artist information

Afroman

Afroman (born Joseph Mortimer Foreman, 28 July 1974) is a rap artist from Palmdale, California.

Life and career

Born in South Central, Los Angeles, Afroman moved to Palmdale, California as a teenager and then to Hattiesburg, Mississippi. His best-known song is the 2001 novelty song "Because I Got High", which gained popularity through Napster, local radio play, a feature on Howard Stern's radio show, and the "stoner" movie Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (and accompanying soundtrack). His other most popular song, "Crazy Rap", which has also gained popularity through P2P clients, is mostly referred to as "Colt 45". The lyrics of the songs on "Afroholic" begin with references to drugs and sex but then the last verse is usually about how Afroman has now found Jesus. In an interview for the program '50 Greatest One Hit Wonder' on British Channel 4 broadcast on 7 May, 2006, he stated that he had given up alcohol, smoking, sex and women for a while but had returned to them. He further stated that he was going to be the best alcoholic, smoking, woman-chasing Christian there was.

Afroman is also fond of referencing his independence from record labels and the "corporate world" and cites himself as an example of how an artist can take recording and distribution into his or her own hands. There is also a distinct resemblance between the chorus of Afroman's song "Palmdale" to the chorus of "Spring Love" by Stevie B.

Afroman also recorded an infamous diss track in 2004 entitled '"Whack Rappers"' in which he disses artists such as Jay-Z, Missy Elliot, The Neptunes, Kelis, B2K, Lil Jon, David Banner, Ying Yang Twins, Birdman, P. Diddy, Trina, 50 Cent and Eve, among many others. Afroman was also called out by bay area legend Yukmouth on Yukmouth's Million Dollar Game mixtape. Yukmouth raps "This nigga weak as fuck/How you gone speak on Yuk/I have my Compton goons come heat you up." While he isn't a mainstream artist, he still maintains a cult following. According to his myspace.com page, he has a new album entitled "Waiting To Inhale". The album was originally entitled "Party Time". While the album still isn't available for purchase at stores, it is available at shows and for download at Afroman's "'Fro Sto. "Afroman has released several songs off the album on his MySpace page. The songs are "I Know All About You", "Ho Stopper", "Colt 45 FIVA", and "Dicc Hang Low". All of them are parodies of other hit songs.
