Wait, what? Afroman is back with a remake of “Because I Got High” 14 years after the song sold 1.5 million million copies and garnered a Grammy nomination. Why? Because he got high, presumably.
Afroman has now teamed up with pro-legalization organizations NORML and Weedmaps as a spokesperson to try and gain favorable votes in Alaska, Oregon and Washington DC during the midterm elections. If anyone can do it, it is Afroman, who recently claimed that he is the “Michael Jordan marijuana.”
Watch below as Afroman strolls through the streets of Los Angeles on a mobile version of his couch as he lights up and rattles off a whole bunch of reasons why he thinks blowing on that Keyshia should be totally legal.
It is definitely worth noting that the original version of “Because I Got High” also describes various negative aspects of smoking all the time a/k/a the ridiculous line, “Now, I’m a quadriplegic and I know why / Because I got high.” But 2014 Afroman thinks that the positive outcomes certainly outweigh any negatives.
