Biography

It’s 4:20 somewhere. Or at least that’s the way AFROMAN sees the world through his green tinted shades. If you took a musical bong hit concocted out of equal parts Biz Markie, Cypress Hill, Beck, Beastie Boys, and James Brown, the ensuing head rush might be comparable to AFROMAN’s unique sound. His Universal debut, The Good Times, is the funniest feel good album of the year, ... Read more in Amazon's Afroman Store

Product Description

Amazon.com

Cross 1970s smut poet Rudy Ray Moore with '90s comedic rappers the Afros, marinate them in malt liquor, and what do you get? Afroman, the first hip-hop-flavored novelty act of the 21st century. The self-proclaimed hungry hustler's unabashed take on American rap from a blaxploitation point of view consists of a laid-back delivery and funky yarns loosely flowing over wah-wah guitar grooves and Hammond organ riffs. It's guaranteed to amuse some listeners and offend many, many more. One glance at The Good Times' track listing should help you decide into which camp you'll fall. The subject matter of tunes such as "Because I Got High" (also featured on the Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back soundtrack) and "Let's All Get Drunk" is readily apparent. But it's all good in the 'hood. Afroman and crew sound like they're having a great old time laying it down, and at least one song on this album will make you laugh. --Rebecca Levine

Customer Reviews

His lyrics and flow are really good, his beats are soo tight.

It's OK to laugh at The Good Times, but recognize that, if you laugh at Afroman, the joke just might be on you.

I bought the expurgated version of Afroman's "The Good Times" as a used CD.

OK, for the record, I'm a 48 year old white male. I'm married and a father of 2 grown children and have 3 grandchildren. I own my own business and I think I'm somewhat educated. So, why in the world do I like this album? I have asked myself this question everytime I listen to it. I guess it's because the guys who made it appear to have had a heck of a good time doing it. The rhymes are fun and the beat is simple and catchy. There are some raunchy "...man from Nantucket" type of lyrics that made me bust out laughing. I especially enjoyed my wife's reaction to the songs.Though she gasped and turned scarlet, she laughed in spite of herself. Surprisingly, I liked every song on the album and found the inclusion of "Hush" a real treat. Look, this isn't U2, R.E.M., Burning Spear or Bob Marley. This is a bunch of folks who have produced an album of good, dirty, infectious fun. I like (love?) the album and highly recommend it to anyone 18 and older. Afroman, I anxiously await your next effort and hope my recommendation doesn't cause you grief from your friends.

Afroman is HILARIOUS!!!
Don't come at this album thinking you're going to hear hip-hop at its finest, or even serious music. Although "The Good Times" evokes frequent memories of Too Short, Nate Dogg and hip-hop of the mid-80s, Afroman takes things to a whole 'nother level.
The debut single "Because I Got High" is only the tip of the iceberg. From his frequent jaunts about his hometown of Palmdale, CA and its abundance of malt liquor, white kids to beat up and beautiful women (to paraphrase in the interest of decency) to his delightfully ghetto hybrid of Bay Area and Southern hip-hop, Miami booty music and Negro Spirituals (if you can believe that), Afroman takes every conceivable Black ghetto stereotype and blows it to the stratosphere in such a way that you can't help but fall on the floor, guffawing.
You will not, I repeat, WILL NOT enjoy this album if you take it seriously. If you are the discriminating hip-hop enthusiast/purist and you embark on this "ghettorific" journey without turning off your Wack Music Radar, you WILL be highly disappointed.
There are a number of ironic things about "The Good Times" -- number one, although this is clearly a case of a bunch of Looney-Tunes having way too much fun in the studio, the fact is, the album just exudes FUN. Number two, although they're not trying to set the world on fire and change the music industry, they are probably the most unique artists currently out. The most ironic thing is that the brothas can actually SING (at least, they could if they really wanted to)!!
Treat this album as our parents and grandparents treated the Richard Pryor albums.

If you're high when you listen to this outrageous album, you're going to think it's all about the joys of "Tumbleweed". But listen up when you're straight... Afroman is telling people what life on drugs and drink is really like, and he's being hugely entertaining at the same time. Pretty sneaky... His real name is Joseph Foreman, and he's a former church drummer and security guard, who is amazed that his little garage band song "Because I Got High" has made him a famous recording star. The real dope on his attitude towards weed is when he was asked by Lisa Allen-Agostini of the LA TImes if he still smokes. He said, "Not if you've got things to do. And I got lots of things to do."
This is a smart guy... there's something in this album for you if you're a homey with a blunt and a Colt 45, or if you're the Narc on the beat. Oh yeah, and the music is great.

I'm writing this review because I'm high(cause im high)
I'm giving this 5 stars becasue I'm high(cause I'm high)
If i dont get 1 helpful vote, I'll know why(why bri)
cause im high cause im high becasue im high.
No for real this album is da bomb. Afro man's debut is crazy. His first single "becuz i got high" is just a funky outrageous little tune. Of corse his lyrics aren't top notch but the song is catchy as hell and the hook is basically plain but in a way so brilliant it makes you wanna sing along like a little kid. This short 10 track album is great, every song has its moment. I alos love Tumbleweed, Palmdale, Mississippi and The American Dream. What else can I say.....5 stars!!!!!!!!

Don't get me wrong, Afroman did a good job with "The Good Times", but i realized that after listening to the same songs talking about getting high,drunk, and freakin' girls got sick after a while. However, i can tell u that some songs i still like. Here's what i think is good and bad about "The Good Times":
1. Because I Got High - way to played out on the radio, i liked it before i got the cd, but after i didn't ever wanna hear it again.
2. Crazy Rap - this is one i never really got tired of. It's a good song about all the crazy mix-ups with girls from all across the world.
3. She Won't Let Me... - never liked it to much, but it's funny and has a catchy beat. It will wear down though, and u probably won't care for it anymore.
4. Hush - liked it when i first heard it, but didn't like it to much afterwards.( One of the only songs without a million cusswords in it ).
5. Tumbleweed - never really heard it to much, so i can still stand it. Don't like the words too much though.
6. Let's All Get Drunk - great beat and good words. One song i actually think could be a good hit if released.
7. Tall Cans - cool song, too long though, in my opion.
8. Palmsdale - best on the cd, i love the beat and the words. This song is the only reason this cd hasn't been outta my cd player since i got it.
9. Mississippi - second best, but wears down after awhile.
10. The American Dream - just him talking to the beat of "Because I Got High", so no really good track.
11. Because I Got High ( Extended ) - this really makes me mad that this is on the cd but is not listed on the back or on the track listings .... it's an awesome track though and isn't as played out as the radio edit.
So that's what i say about "The Good Times" by Afroman.
NOTE: THIS IS A GOOD CD FOR A FREIND TO BUY, AND FOR U TO JUST BORROW OR BURN. BELIEVE ME, YOU'LL GET SICK OF IT SOONER OR LATER.
I hope this review helped!!
