Are We High Right Now or Did Redman Say There’ll be a ‘How High 2’?
During an interview with The Source at SXSW last week, Redman made a big announcement: “Me and Meth, we’re working on a How High 2. It’s being written. Hopefully, by the end of the year, the script will be done and we can start shooting next year.”
It’s been 16 years since Red and Method Man linked up for the stoner classic How High, their modernized take on a Cheech and Chong flick. But since that movie was released, Meth has put the blunt down.
“I don’t want that every time you hear Method Man’s name you associate it with getting high or marijuana because there’s so much more to me than that. I’m not actually distancing myself from my marijuana culture people, but it’s not in the forefront anymore,” Method Man told Vibe in 2011. “I got kids to raise, man. Plus it was never really that bad. It gets comes to a point where no matter where you go they’re always thinking you’re high. And I’m not always high. I mean right now I’m sober as a priest.”
Redman spent part of the interview plugging his app, BlazeNow. “It’ll tell you all the best dispensaries, all the weak dispensaries in the area,” said Red.
