Leave it to Redman and Method Man to bring their love of marijuana to the big screen. Starring as two stoners whose "magical herbs" get them into Harvard, the two MCs bring the smoke-induced humor to the masses via How High. Musically, Def Jam's dynamic duo lead off the film's soundtrack with "Part II." The sequel to "How High" (Red and Meth's first collaboration, for which the film is named), the Erick Sermon-produced single was the perfect set-up for the film and the soundtrack. The 20-track set also serves as a greatest hits of sorts for the duo, with the inclusion of tracks like "Da Rockwilder," "How to Roll a Blunt," and "Bring Da Pain." But there's more to the soundtrack than Redman and Method Man. Newcomer Jonell steals some of the spotlight with the remix of "Round and Round." Teaming with Meth, the songstress reworks the Hi-Tek-produced track with more sass than its original. Appropriately, the soundtrack ends where it all began, with a remix of "How High."—RH
