It’s been almost 15 years since the mastermind behind “Because I Got High,” Afroman, released the hit single that went on to become the anthem for stoners worldwide. Today, the rapper-singer has rolled up this semi-new joint, “Because I Got High” – the positive (political) remix. The reboot along with the music video’s release is a collaboration between Weedmaps and NORML, two pro-marijuana organizations for which Afroman is the new spokesperson. The CMO of Weedmap, Kat Smith told VICE that the organization has aligned the video’s release with the upcoming ballot initiatives involving marijuana. In this legalization anthem, the self-proclaimed “Michael Jordan of marijuana” can be seen spitting new verses about his new and improved life, all because he got high. Watch the video above, and let us know what you think.
