The 48-year-old rapper is the latest celebrity to throw his hat in the ring to be the leader of the free world.
According to TMZ, Afroman made the announcement at his concert at the Black River Coliseum in Poplar Bluff, Missouri.
He told the crowd he plans to run up against the likes of Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis and even Ye.
However, for those who initially deemed it a publicity stunt, the rapper, who is perhaps best known for his song, ‘Because I Got High’ posted a follow-up video.

While sporting a white suit with the devil’s oregano painted in the colors of the flag, Afroman said: “Yes yes, what’s going on? It’s the hungry hustler of the American dream - Afroman, I’m running for president in 20-fro.”
He continued: “I’m going to get recreational cannabis legal in all states, I know your vote.”
Of course, the video, which began circulating all over Twitter, sent users into a frenzy.
One person wrote: “I may have finally found a political party I can agree with.”
Another said: “MAN THE WORLD ENDIN FAST LOL.”
While a third commented: “I’m almost tempted.”
I mean, look, it can’t be any worse than any of the current candidates at the moment.
ABC News reported that the Republican told his loyal fans that the US is a 'nation in decline', believing he is the savior to bring it back to glory.
"This decline is not a fate we must accept," he said, according to the outlet.
"When given the choice, boldly, clearly and directly, I believe the American people will overwhelmingly reject the left's platform of national ruin."
He added that ‘America's comeback starts right now’ echoing his MAGA sentiment he endorsed previously.
His announcement follows the US committee making recommendations to charge the former US President for his involvement in the January 6 riots.
At its final public hearing, the panel voted unanimously to refer Trump to the Department of Justice on four criminal counts.
While the department is not required to honor the recommendations, they have begun conducting its own investigation.
