Famous rapper Afroman officially announced his run for president in 2024, according to a Tuesday statement obtained exclusively by the Daily Caller.

“My Fellow Americans, There comes a time in the course of human events when change must be affected. That time is now. Americans are suffering, and the status quo is no longer acceptable,” his campaign manager, Jason Savage, said in the statement.

Savage addressed the critical elements of Afroman’s platform. “Inflation is out of control. The economy is in shambles. The housing market is staggering. Politicians are corrupt,” he said. (RELATED: Musical Artist Afroman Announces He’s Running For President Of The USA)

“It is my immense honor and pleasure to formally announce Afroman as an independent candidate for President of the Untied States of America,” Savage continued.

The artist named a number of matters he wants to address as president. “Bad apples are allowed to remain in law enforcement, amongst our noble and brave officers. Medicinal plants are criminalized, while pharmaceutical companies enrich themselves on chemicals with unknown side effects.”

“The media sows the seeds of hatred 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. They attempt to divide based on race, religion, gender, sexual preference, and every other category that they can think of,” the statement continued.

Afroman’s team then highlighted the qualities the rapper would bring to the table.

“We need a candidate that is truly elected by the people, and for the people. We need a man that can step up and lead with a firm hand. The people are starved for a Commander in Chief, that leads from a place of love and not hate. In these dark times, we need a leader that truly embodies the American dream,” the statement read.

Afroman’s team said the star is a relatable figure who could draw on a wide array of personal and professional experiences, giving him an edge over other candidates. “Who better to lead in criminal justice reform, than a man who has traveled through the complete metamorphosis of the justice system? A man who entered juvenile hall as a tadpole, and hopped out of prison as a bullfrog, and is still the American Dream.”

His team described the rapper as “The original hungry hustler. A representative of the blue state of California, and the red state of Mississippi,” and “Our Cannabis Commander in Chief. Our Pot Head of State.”

“Who better to hold the highest office in the land, than the highest and flyest playa in the game? He is for the black man, Mexican, even poor white, all human beings that have no rights. So put down your past, and pick up your future,” the statement read.
