That's right, the author of the smash turn-of-the-millennium hit "Because I Got High" is just the latest rapper to make a return appearance here in town. The party-hardy rapper is touring in preparation of the release of his new album Frobama (how can you avoid a golden pun opportunity like that?), slated for a May release. The record is quintessential Afroman, plenty of silly skits and boasting cuts about well, weed malt liquor and some digs on his former label, Universal. And yes, most of this is hilarious.
"There's a time for everything. There's a time to change a tire, you know what I mean? There's a time to actually pop the trunk and be like, 'OK what do we got here?'"
Do we get what the hell he means here? No, not really. But it's still awesome. And it's certainly awesome enough to set down your chocolate bunny for a couple hours and party down with Afroman on your Easter Sunday. On second thought...might want to bring that chocolate bunny after all - it might come in handy late in the set, if ya know what I mean.
