Dol Ré Has Performed and Been Advertised as Hip-Hop Star by San Jose Booking Agency

Los Angeles, CA, Jan. 13, 2004 - Hungry Hustler recording artist Afroman is one busy sucker, with new releases like 4ro:20 and his Christmas album, Jobe Bells, but even he can't be two places at once.

That's exactly what it seemed like when one Dol Ré and San Jose, CA booking agency RS Entertainment were slapped with a cease-and-desist for performing and being promoted as Afroman of "Because I Got High" fame up and down the west coast.

"Dol Ré is a talented impersonator," admitted Afroman, whose real name is Joseph Foreman. "He's good at what he does. I wish him success. If he ever gets to the point where he can't make money impersonating me as Afroman, maybe he can make money as 'Dol Ré, the guy who impersonated and ripped off Afroman.'"

Afroman claims he would have tried to prevent Dol Ré from trying to swindle promoters long ago, but he didn't, of course, "because he got high."
