Wu-Tang‘s Method Man really, really, really wants a fresh pair of Nike kicks turn into a reality. The hip-hop veteran has reached out to the sports apparel giant to encourage production on a pair of Enter the Wu-Tang-inspired sneakers.
Mef hopped on Instagram Wednesday (October 10) to extend his hand to Nike and inspire fans to rally for a pair of sneakers to hit the retail market.
Outside of the Wu, Method Man is reportedly going ghost in a long-awaited sequel to his 2001 How High movie.
Sources close to “How High 2” tell TMZ … the hip-hop duo wasn’t cast in the made-for-TV movie after starring in the original stoner comedy. We’re told the sequel is going to be fundamentally different from the OG version — think sativa vs. indica — because it’s for a television PG-13 audience, and weed legalization has made strides since 2001, when Meth and Red blazed their way through Harvard. Meth and Red are MIA — probably ripping a bong somewhere — but one of the original producers, Shauna Garr, is returning. (TMZ)
A few weeks ago, buzz developed about a much-needed How High sequel going into production.
How High 2, the highly-anticipated sequel to the iconic and outrageous stoner comedy starring Method Man and Redman, began shooting today in Atlanta, with Grammy®-nominated artist Lil Yachty in the lead role. The follow up to the 2001 cult classic is produced by MTV and Universal 1440 Entertainment, the production arm of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. How High 2 will premiere on MTV in 2019. How High 2 chronicles two young “potrepreneurs” on a magical hash-fueled journey to fund their on-demand munchies delivery start-up. Lil Yachty plays “Roger, an entrepreneur and the younger brother of one of the protagonists from the original film.
Back in 2009, comedian Mike Epps talked to SOHH about his disinterest in resurrecting his “Baby Powder” character in a potential How High sequel.
“Yeah, I mean, you know, you know, I’m really, really really trying, no offense to anybody, Redman, Method Man or the project, I’m really trying to move on,” Epps explained. “I’m really trying to get some opportunities where I can really show my acting chops and get some respect. I’m approaching a certain age in my life, you know, some of those roles are kinda like, they’re old for me man. You know what I mean? Those roles are for younger guys that are entering the business now.” (SOHH)
