The name he had when he was a bald baby: Joseph Edgar Foreman
And the name he took when the hair grew in: Afroman
When Afroman started rapping: in eighth grade, where he recorded homemade raps about his teacher and sold them to his classmates
The track that made Afroman blow up like the world’s dopest puffer fish: “Because I Got High”
Legal ways that track first made it to the public: The Howard Stern Show, live concerts
But how most heard it in 2000: through an antiquated service known as Napster, which ran on steam and required a handcrank
How high that hit got: it earned Afroman a Grammy nomination, scored him a major record deal, and put him on the road with like-minded acts such as Cyprus Hill and Method Man
Fun fact about Afroman: he plays a mean Gibson SG double-neck, just like Jimmy Page
What to expect from the show: smooth raps that might include “Let’s All Get Drunk Tonight,” “Colt 45,” and his signature hit, plus guitar solos
