Afroman Raises Some Questions
Afroman, whose legal name is Joseph Foreman, has now turned those videos into a music video for a song called “Will You Help Me Repair My Door?”
“Why does the warrant mention narcotics? Yes, I know narcotics. But why kidnapping?” asks Foreman in the song.
As security footage shows police going through his belongings, Foreman asks a few more questions, including whether there are any kidnapping victims or thousands of pounds of weed in his suit pockets.
And the Questions Continue
When the police move to another room in the house containing thousands of CDs, Foreman says, “Are there any kidnap victims on my CDs?”
Foreman was in Chicago at the time of the raid, and security footage shows police breaking down his gate and front door to enter the property. The agents can also be seen taking money out of the pocket of one of Foreman’s suit jackets, which the rapper said was payment for a gig.
This also prompts another question from Foreman. “Why are you stealing my money?” he asks, adding, “You represent the law, and it’s funny. You’re stealing the hard-earned money that I pay taxes on.”
Some of the money was later returned, $400 missing on appeal. The issue of the “vanished” money has been turned over to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, which will oversee the investigation.
No Charges Laid Against Afroman
Although no charges have been brought against Foreman, some of the items seized from the property are still being tested for the presence of narcotics.
Medical cannabis is legal in Ohio, but possessing small amounts (less than 100 grams) of cannabis for recreational use is a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum fine of $150.
Afroman, Future American Presidential Candidate
Last month, Foreman announced that he was aiming for the White House in “Twenty Twenty Fro” and planned to “get recreational cannabis legalized in every state.”
“My American friends, There comes a time when change must come in the course of human events. This moment has arrived. Americans are hurting, and the status quo is no longer acceptable,” his campaign manager, Jason Savage, said in the statement on Afroman’s Instagram.
The statement refers to Foreman as the “Commander in Chief of Cannabis” and notes that he is “representative of the blue state of California and the red state of Mississippi.”
“Who better to occupy the highest position in the country than the highest and most fickle playa in the game?”
