Two hip hop artists are now in the running to become the next United States President. As Joe Biden will continue to stay in the current role for a next term, he will be trying to fend of not only the former president Donald Trump, but now Afroman as well.
Per TMZ, the “Because I Got High” rapper announced his presidential run during a Poplar Bluff, MO. During his show at the Black River Coliseum, he told the audience that he’ll be getting into politics with hopes of being the next POTUS.
“Can I make the biggest announcement I ever made in my life?” he asked the audience to roaring applause. “I’m running for president in 20-20-fro! We gonna get legal weed everywhere.”
Afroman’s platform is as obvious as can be. The man who made one of the greatest stoner anthems of all time said that he plans on legalizing cannabis on a federal level for recreational use — an act that Joe Biden’s failed to do since he entered office.

In another video on his IG page, he doubled down on his plans to enter the presidential race. “It’s the hungry hustler of the American Dream, Afroman. I’m running for president is 20-20-fro. I’m gonna get recreational cannabis legal in all states. I need your vote.”
Afroman’s yet to file the appropriate paperwork but his team says he’s in the process of filling it out. His team also said that he’ll be running as an independent candidate. No word yet on what other policies he plans to implement or run with in this campaign that his team says he is very serious about. Would you vote for Afroman to become the next United States Of America President?
He has also made a public statement officially released on his social media.
My Fellow Americans,
There comes a time in the course of human events when change must be affected. That time is now. Americans are suffering, and the status quo is no longer acceptable.
Inflation is out of control. The economy is in shambles. The housing market is staggering. Politicians are corrupt. Bad apples are allowed to remain in law enforcement, amongst our noble and brave officers. Medicinal plants are criminalized, while pharmaceutical companies enrich themselves on chemicals with unknown side effects. The media sows the seeds of hatred 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. They attempt to divide based on race, religion, gender, sexual preference, and every other category that they can think of.
We need a candidate that is truly elected by the people, and for the people. We need a man that can step up and lead with a firm hand. The people are starved for a Commander in Chief, that leads from a place of love and not hate. In these dark times, we need a leader that truly embodies the American dream.
My candidate IS the American Dream. Who better to lead in criminal justice reform, than a man who has traveled through the complete metamorphosis of the justice system? A man who entered juvenile hall as a tadpole, and hopped out of prison as a bullfrog, and is still the American Dream. The most rejected, disrespected, when he went for a job he was never selected, and is still The American Dream. The acceptable reject. The original Hungry Hustler. A representative of the blue state of California, and the red state of Mississippi. Our Cannabis Commander in Chief. Our Pot Head of State. Who better to hold the highest office in the land, than the highest and flyest playa in the game? He is for the black man, Mexican, even poor white, all human beings that have no rights. So put down your past, and pick up your future.
It is my immense honor and pleasure to formally announce Afroman as an independent candidate for President of the Untied States of America.
