Joseph Edgar Foreman is an American rapper who produces music under the pseudonym Afroman. After adopting his chosen moniker in the early 1990s and honing his distinctive style, he dropped his first album My Fro-losophy, in 1999. With the help of producer Tim Ramenofsky, he followed the album up with the LP, Because I Got High, which spawned the critically and commercially acclaimed title track. After a year of circulated around the internet, "Because I Got High" became an international hit and earned Afroman a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Solo Performance in 2002. He has since continued to perform and release new material, including 2012's Marijuana Music.
