Foi uma das maiores febres musicais do começo do Século XXI, das primeiras a beneficiar da Internet para ganhar popularidade e se tornar um sucesso à escala mundial. Because I got High do Afroman, foi assim uma das músicas mais tocadas em 2001.

O rapper Afroman já tinha lançado a música Because I got High em 2000, mas foi quando ela começou a ser partilhada no Napster que a sua fama começou a crescer, sendo convidado para o programa de rádio de Howard Stern e fazendo parte da banda sonora de alguns filmes.

Começou a passar em muitas rádios e estações de Televisão, tornando-se um hit mundial e fazendo com que o seu cd fosse editado um pouco por todo o lado. A letra mostra as confusões da vida do narrador entrou numa espiral negativa depois de ficar pedrado, perdendo emprego, namorada e muito mais. Não era um rap agressivo, tinha um género pausado e uma batida animada, acompanhando um videoclip bem engraçado.
