Rapper Afroman Submits Paperwork To Run For President In 2024

Joseph Edgar Foreman (born July 28, 1974), better known by his stage name Afroman, is a rapper, singer, songwriter, and comedian.

He is best known for his 2000 single “Because I Got High”, and its follow-up, the 2001 single “Crazy Rap”. Both songs were featured on his album The Good Times (2001) Afroman was nominated for a Grammy award a year later.

According to TMZ, the “Because I Got High” artist has filed the necessary paperwork to run in the 2024 presidential race against a growing pool of both Democrat and Republican candidates. The documents were apparently submitted to the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday, just days before Afroman—legal name Joseph Edgar Foreman—participated in 4/20 festivities.

His campaign manager, Jason Savage, confirmed the Los Angeles native is running on a platform of marijuana legalization and criminal justice reform, two issues for which he has consistently advocated. Savage touched on Afroman’s ongoing legal battle with Ohio authorities, saying the matter underscores the corruption within the U.S. criminal justice system.

“Afroman’s ongoing persecution by the overtly corrupt Adams County Sheriff’s Department perfectly highlights that this corruption of leadership has trickled down to law enforcement all across the country,” Savage said.

“Criminal Justice Reform and Federal Marijuana Legalization remain two of the primary planks in his campaign platform. We are asking for your support as Afroman takes on this great and worthy cause as our Cannabis Commander in Chief.”

Afroman, who is running as an independent, announced his presidential campaign in December 2022. He shared a lengthy Instagram message in which Savage referred to him as the country’s next “Cannabis Commander in Chief” and “Pot Head of State.”
