Legal name: Joseph Foreman
Joseph Edgar Foreman (born July 28, 1974), better known by his stage name Afroman, is an American hip-hop recording artist and musician. He is best known for the hit single "Because I Got High". He was nominated for a Grammy award in 2002.
He began his career in 8th Grade, when he began recording homemade songs and selling them to his classmates. "The first tape I made was about my eighth-grade teacher," he once recalled. "She got me kicked out of school for sagging my pants, which was a big deal back then. So I wrote this song about her and it sold about 400 copies: it was selling to teachers, students, just about everybody. And I realized that, even though I wasn't at school, my song was at school, so in a way I was still there. All these people would come by my house just to give me comments about how cool they thought the song was." Foreman also performed in his church at a young age, playing both the drums and guitar.
