Afroman is the stage name of Joseph Edgar Foreman, a Los Angeles-born, Mississippi-based rapper known for his songs "Because I Got High" and "Crazy Rap".


  • Addiction Displacement: In the Positive Remix of "Because I Got High," Afroman talks about how he used to smoke tobacco and drink alcohol before he found cannabis to be a better alternative to both.
  • Anything That Moves: Afroman will have sex with anything as long as it's female.
  • Citizenship Marriage: In "Crazy Rap," Afroman has a brief fling with a Mexican immigrant named Maria, but is unable to afford marrying her so she can stay in the country.
    She wanted to get married, but I couldn't afford it
    I know I'm gonna cry when she gets deported
  • A Date with Rosie Palms: In "Because I Got High:"
    I was gonna make love to you, but then I got high
    I was gonna eat your pussy too, but then I got high
    Now I'm jacking off!
    [starts cracking up] And I know why

  • Dating What Daddy Hates: "Crazy Rap" has Afroman shack up with a white woman whose father happens to be the leader of the KKK. Said father comes home and is not pleased in the least when he finds out.
  • Drugs Are Bad: "Because I Got High" is all about how one man's life was ruined by his inability to stop smoking weed.
    I messed up my entire life because I got high
    I lost my kids and wife because I got high
    Now I'm sleeping on the sidewalk and I know why
    (Why, man?)
    Because I got high, because I got high, because I got high
  • Drugs Are Good: The positive remix of "Because I Got High" lists all the ways marijuana has positively affected both the singer's life and society as a whole.
  • The Klan: Afroman runs into the leader of a Klan branch in "Crazy Rap".
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: The Klan leader shows Afroman no mercy when he catches him.
    He beat me to the left, he beat me to the right
    That motherfucker whooped my ass all night

  • Triumphant Reprise: Advocates for marijuana legalization got Afroman to write a version of "Because I Got High" in 2014 that highlighted the benefits of marijuana.
  • Unsettling Gender Reveal: In "Crazy Rap," Afroman was looking forward to having sex with a woman from Hollywood until she "whooped out a dick that was bigger than mine."
  • Worth It: In "Crazy Rap," Afroman has just banged the daughter of the local KKK leader, gets caught by said Klansman, and suffers a brutal No-Holds-Barred Beatdown. How does he feel afterward?
    I ain't mad at her prejudiced dad
    'Cuz that's the best damn pussy I ever had!

I wasn't gonna go on TV Tropes, but then I got high
I wasn't gonna repeat those memes and jokes, but then I got high
Now my life is ruined, and I know why
(Why, man?)
Because I got high, because I got high, because I got high

How well does it match the trope?
