I was surprised to see Afroman at my local WaWa™ panhandling, and proceeded with an impromptu interview in exchange for 2 cigarettes and a compliment.
“Nice afro, man!” I exclaimed as I handed him 2 of my smokes, then we were off.
Richard: What are you doing here?
Afroman: I was gonna go to New York, but then I got high.
R: Sounds like some primo chronic you have. Wanna smoke? I got 5 on it.
A: I was gonna buy some weed, but then I shot dope,
R: Shot dope? Why?
A: I was gonna go to therapy, but then I found drugs,
R: How long have you been addicted to heroin?
A: Since New Years Eve Y2K,
I was thrown by his final answer as well. I was expecting him to say something something “Because I got high” too, but alas.
He then went on to explain how the song was meant to be a public service announcement to deter people from using heroin, but instead the record label twisted it (like a joint) into an Anthem for potheads everywhere.
Now I understand why he didn’t want to eat her pussy too, heroin.
