"Crazy Rap", also known as "Colt 45 and 2 Zig Zags" or simply "Colt 45", is a dirty rap single recorded by rapper Afroman. It was featured on his third album, Sell Your Dope, and was later included on his greatest hits album, The Good Times. It is often referred to as "Colt 45", as the hook states "Colt 45 and two zig-zags, baby that's all we need". The song failed to replicate the success of its predecessor but it remains as Afroman's signature song.

Music video[edit]

The video takes place in front of a liquor store in Los Angeles, and shows Afroman telling his story to his friends, while dancing and crip walking to the beat with them, and others who join in. It also shows him in the various situations he describes, such as riding in a car, being chased by a klansman, and in the bed with multiple women. The last line is a homage to Rapper's Delight.

This is a remade version of the song which was first featured on Afroman's debut album My Fro-losophy, which was released independently without a record label.
