# CCCXLII…Not a One-Hit Wonder…Featuring Afroman!

On this slow birthday list, one name pops out…July 28th is the birthday of rapper Afroman (born Joseph Foreman, 1974).  The title of my post refers, of course, to his hit track, “Because I Got High”.  While his music is not my genre to cover, I did find out that (naturally) he’s been active since 1992, when he started selling homemade songs to classmates.

It was the title track to his second album listed above that really propelled his career, which has led to 15 albums releases, touring with acts like Cypress Hill, Method Man, Insane Clown Posse and the like.  Also, as it turns out (and something I have to look for), he had released a remix of “Because I Got High” last year, as sort of a “pro-marijuana” song instead of the original’s “slacker” connotations.

Smoke ’em if you got ’em, Afroman…we will in your honor!!!

Also born on this slow day are/were; late author Beatrix Potter (1866-1943), late inventor Earl Tupper {“Tupperware” creator} (1907-1983), late First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (1929-1994), voice actor (“Optimus Prime”) Peter Cullen (1941), “Garfield” creator Jim Davis (1945), actress Sally Struthers (1947) and late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez (1954-2013).

Finishing the list are; actress Lori Loughlin (1964), UFC president Dana White (1969), Arch Enemy guitarist Michael Amott (1970) and former New Jersey Devils’ left wing, Zach Parise was born in 1984.

Enjoy your day, everyone…I will be back at some point…
