Last week, the internet got upset when it was learned that Method Man and Redman will not be featured in How High 2.
The sequel is reportedly set to star Lil’ Yachty and DC Young Fly in the film. Redman showed up on the Grass Routes Podcast to give his side on what happened.
After giving a shout out to the two new stars of the film, and saying he’s not mad at them he revealed that he was disappointed with the decision.
“My thing is when you have a brand, like Red and Meth, that kind of helped built and created this entity of How High and shooting a movie on marijuana and being in college – those were all of our ideas. And when the deal came about, we wasn’t involved in it.”
He later revealed that they were in talks with Universal to make the How High sequel before the latest announcement.
“What happened is that a branch that’s under Universal decided [they were] gonna shoot this movie,” he said. “And they did not need permission from us because we didn’t own the rights to How High,” As far as me and Meth know, we were waiting on a new script to read for How High 2. Out of the blue, we get calls from everywhere, like, ‘Yo, Lil Yachty is starring in the movie,’ or ‘MTV picked up How High 2.’ And I’m like, ‘Wait a minute. We got writers that’s writing the movie. We got people up at Universal that’s giving us the green light. What’s going on?’”
At the end, they were asked to star in the movie but refused due to the way the situation rolled out. Don’t worry though they have a new movie in the works, plus Blackout! 3 with Method Man.
