Lil Yachty and DC Young Fly caught flak on social media (again) thanks to their starring roles in How High 2, a remake of the cult classic featuring Method Man and Redman. The film premiered on the unofficial national holiday for weed connoisseurs, Saturday (April 20), on MTV at 9 p.m. ET.
The Bruce Leddy-directed picture also features Mike Epps, DeRay Davis, Susan Gallagher, Lil Baby, Blac Youngsta, Justine Skye, Nene Leakes and more.
Shot in Atlanta, the film revolves around two young entrepreneurs who grow a magical marijuana plant they eventually distribute. The supernatural weed gets stolen, and the two go on a mission to get it back.
Fans of the original How High initially met the film with skepticism after the sequel’s trailer revealed the memorable duo wouldn’t be in the remake.
How High 2 was set in motion with Method Man and Redman in 2017, but it was later revealed the partners-in-rhyme wouldn’t actually be in the sequel.
Twitter, of course, set fire to the revamp of the film.
This is an example of trying too hard to put "humor" where it doesn't need to be. Yeah, pot heads and smoking weed can be funny but pushing it this hard is like, what? A slap in the face to the black communities. I almost feel like they are mocking em.
I felt this way for a long time. Like I see a lot of these kinds of movies and they almost feel embarrassing. Like who would want to be part of this? Comedy is one thing but when you are just doing something for the money, it shows.
Yeah this don't sit right with me. To be fair to them, a lot of these urban comedies don't. I don't mind comedy but there are a lot of series issues in inner cities and making comedies highlighting some of them ain't helping fix or mend the problems. This movie will be a hard pass from me.
