Popular Music: The Podcast

Apr 22, 2019

Happy 420, Popettes! In honor of the holiday that many just celebrated, we’re delving into Afroman’s classic, “Because I Got High.” We’ll talk all about his rise to greatness - like did you know that Afroman was selling his own singles in MIDDLE SCHOOL? This guy has been a badass since day 1. Also, we do a lyrical dive to dissect whether or not this green anthem is really all that complimentary of the green!




No guilt. Only pleasure. Popular Music is a pop music podcast hosted by Omar Najam and Analise Nelson. New episodes every Monday.
