Redman and Method Man are heading out on the "How High" tour next week in support of their upcoming movie and soundtrack, yet the dynamic duo are already very vocal about another potential outing.
"I hope Jay-Z starts [another] Hard Knock Life tour," said Redman, who, along with Meth, was the opening act on the 1999 multi-artist trek. "That's what I'm waiting on. Come on, Jay-Z, you got five mics in The Source magazine. Start that tour up and throw me and [Method] Man on there, 'cause you know we're blowing the spot. I don't care who you're putting on that tour we're blowing the spot."
"I don't even mind going first, still," Meth said.
"I say do it like before, and put some more [acts] on there," Red offered. "We need DMX on there. We need Ja Rule on there. Ja Rule is huge now, so he's gonna be bringing in some cake there, too."
Roc-A-Fella Records will only confirm that Jay-Z is talking about going back on the road again; the label has no information with regard to a timetable, name or scale for the tour.
Redman and Method Man have more than enough to do in the meantime. They have four songs on the "How High" soundtrack, which comes out December 11 (see "Method Man & Redman Video Mimics Their Movie High Jinks"). Their movie, which was originally slated to hit theaters on December 26, will now be released on December 21.
