Afroman signed a six-album deal with Universal, but then he got high!
The hilarious Afroman sure likes to get high, he is not just known, but defined by it.
Seemingly destined for greatness, Afroman got kicked out of his Californian school, wrote a song about it, and sold 400 copies to his classmates. “It was as if I was still there” he famously exclaimed.
In ‘98, Afroman moved to Mississippi, formed a band, and released Because I Hot High, on the file-sharing site Napster in 2000.
The song was soon picked up by Howard Stern on his radio show, as well as the movie Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
The single even got nominated in 2002 for best rap performance. This led to a six-album deal with Universal. As no more hits came since then, we have to assume this is because Afroman got high, again.
