Many people have heard of Hattiesburg only because of Afroman, who does live here, though he doesn't always claim it. "Because I Got High" is pretty much the only thing he is known for, and that's too bad, because the man is quite talented. (Who else could make the rhyme "I get nervous/ as I swerve this/Cadillac through Purvis"?)

I asked him once where he got the nickname "Afroman," and he said it came from childhood. As in every neighborhood, you inevitably got stuck with a name describing your predominant characteristic. Then he said, "Yeah, Zit Face is still pissed."
