Joseph Edgar Foreman (born July 28, 1974 in East Palmdale, California) better known by his stage name Afroman, is a rapper from East Palmdale, Los Angeles, who later moved 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, the movie "Disturbia" starring Shia LaBeouf, The Perfect Score, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (and accompanying soundtrack). Arguably his second 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 alcohol-drinking, marijuana-smoking, woman-chasing Christian there was. He dedicates all his songs to his beloved friends Sam E., Noah L.
