XXcLusive: Redman Blames Universal For Disrupting “High,” Promises “New Weed Movie”

With Blackout! 2 looming, Redman recently spoke to about the less promising prospect of a sequel to his film collaboration with Method Man, 2001′s How High.

Since announcing the follow up two years ago, Red said the film is still at stage “zero.” The New Jersey-bred rapper blames Universal Pictures for the delay, stating him and his partner-in-rhyme may have to search for another distributor.

“To all the fans out there How High the movie is supposed to be coming out but Universal was not pushing, they weren’t pushing out the money so we might can’t call it How High Part 2, and we might can not use the characters,” he explained. “We can’t be Jamal, can’t be Silas, I’m gonna have to come up with a whole new weed movie because of Universal.” [Watch Below]

Yet the Funk Doc wants his fans to know that he’s doing his best to return to the big screen. “We are gonna give you a movie don’t worry about it,” he promised, “it’s just might not be How High Part 2.”

One sequel that has a firm release date is the Red and Meth’s new album. Blackout! 2, which picks up where duo’s platinum-selling debut left off, on May 19. – Devin Chanda
