AllMusic Review by

If you haven't kept up with Afroman since his 2000 hit, "Because I Got High," fell off the charts, he's still doin' it, with a blunt in one hand, a beer in the other, and a grin from ear to ear. He's doin' it all with a busy touring schedule and the help of the Siccness label, who don't own the rights to his biggest/only hit, which is probably the reason Greatest Hitz Live exists. Here, the perpetually stoned and drunk rapper casually strolls through a collection of hedonistic numbers and, believe it or not, whips out the guitar for some solos he's obviously proud of since they're highlighted on the album's track list. He shouldn't be, and they shouldn't be, but he should be proud of his Chong-styled charm and amusing lines like "Hope I don't wreck when my vision gets blurry/Sober up looking at an all-white jury" from the opening "Let's All Get Drunk." By the time the big hit rolls around -- with guitar solo -- most will be put off by the limited subject matter, the flat sound quality, and the ridiculous length of some of these tracks, with "Crazy Rap" being especially hard to take at over nine minutes. This will only be a worthwhile purchase for the fans able to digest the two or three albums Afroman releases per year.
