Method Man and Redman’s beloved stoner flick How High may have been released well over a decade ago, but despite that lengthy period of time there hasn’t been much progress made when it concerns a sequel to the film. TMZ recently caught up with Method Man who revealed that they’re currently waiting for Dustin Lee Abraham to write a screenplay for How High 2. “Right now my man Dustin Lee Abraham, who wrote the first one, we’re currently waiting on him to write the second one. If it’s good enough, we’ll rush out the gate with it,” Method Man explained. Method Man later alluded to there possibly being an issue with Universal and even encouraged fans to start a petition if they have any interest in seeing a sequel to How High. “[If] Universal get the stick up out their ass. There’s a lot of people that want to see this movie,” said the Wu-Tang rapper. “Matter of fact, you guys should start a petition. Who wants to see How High Part 2? And once you start it then we’ll see where the big wigs heads are at.” Released in 2001, How High featured Method Man and Redman as two marijuana smokers who were accepted into Harvard University.
Legendary Wu Tang rapper Raekwon opened up about music allowing the members to get off the streets when “M.E.T.H.O.D. Man” blew up, and Raekwon revealed that everyone thought Method Man was the most passionate group. Raekwon also revealed that in the beginning the group was happy if just one member made it big, and they used Method Man’s good looks to get noticed.

Meth’s celebrating his bday today and performed at the Key Club last night. Durning his set, he brought out the Funk Doc for “Da Rockwilder” as well as RZA for “Wu -Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthin Ta Fuck Wit”.
This same film was inspiration for a wide range of Wu related cultural references, including the title track name for Enter the Wu-Tang’s Da Mystery of Chessboxin, Ghostface Killah’s name, which was inspired by Mark Long’s character, Ghost Face Killer, and also dialogue sampled and used for Ghostface’s Poisonous Darts off Ironman. Enjoy!
