Afroman - Because I Got High sheet music

We decided today is the funny-song day for our website, so we are concentrating on Afroman - Because I Got High.

Afroman is an American rapper, by his real name Joseph Edgar Foreman.

He is also a singer, a songwriter, and a multi-instrumentalist, playing the guitar, bass guitar, and drums.

He got really famous for the first time due to his song Because I Got High, in 2001.

The song was released in July 2001 as part of Afroman’s album named the same as the song but also of the album The Good Times.

The story behind the lyrics of the free Because I Got High piano sheets is about cannabis and how its use degrades the narrator’s quality of life.

He started losing control of everything in his life, not taking responsibility and the examples include not cleaning his room, failing his college class, getting fired, gambling away, and the worst, being left by his wife and losing the custody of his children.

The vibe of the song is funny, even if the message is really serious.

The most important thing Afroman tries to transmit through his song is actually managed through a parody.

He doesn’t want to sound like a mother or a wife, maybe even a teacher.

But he wants his message to be heard and taken seriously by sending it from the defendant's shoes.

The free Because I Got High piano sheet music was released as a comedy hip-hop song, with a length of 5:10 minutes.

It was written by Afroman and co-produced by him together with Headfridge.

The fun fact about Because I Got High is that it was written in only a few minutes, and came to fame instantly, after flooding the internet and also being featured on The Howard Stern Show.

The music video made for the song features Afroman rolling on the streets in his car, smoking cannabis, and singing the song.

In the video, we can see almost every example of what happened in his life "because he got high".
