In December, the 48-year-old rapper said he was already interested in leading his country. Last week, American entertainment website TMZ reported that Afroman had actually applied to the Election Commission as an independent candidate.
The chances of Joseph Edgar Foreman, Afroman as he is known in everyday life, actually becoming President of the United States are slim. In 2020, Kanye West was the official candidate in 12 states, but did not receive more than 0.5% of the vote in any state. After the 2020 election, he tweeted that he would run again in 2024, but it is not yet known if that will follow through.
For decades, either the Democratic or Republican candidate has won US elections. Other candidates and parties do not always participate, but they never get enough votes to win the electoral vote.
Afroman’s main thrust is the legalization and decriminalization of cannabis. He also calls for reform of the criminal justice system and law enforcement, reparations for African-American victims of slavery, promotion of unity, peace and love, more money for elite sports, and the legalization of prostitution. Afroman opposes media that spreads hate and tends to categorize people based on race, religion, gender and sexual preferences and wants to end inflation. He says he stands up for African Americans, Mexicans, poor whites and all disenfranchised people.
Afroman reached the top 10 in the Dutch Top 40 in autumn 2001, thanks to the novelty hit I Got High. In that song he sings about all the daily activities that he doesn’t get because he keeps getting high.
