Cliff “Method Man” Smith and his manager, Shauna Garr, have partnered to form Six Am Production Company. Their first project will be “How High 3,” according to Variety.

According to the site, the production company will “produce a diverse range of content for untold points of view.”

Six Am’s main source of distribution will be through streaming platforms and social media.

Their first official project is “How High 3.” Similar to the first movie, the third installment will feature the return of the 90’s hip-hop duo Method Man and Redman.

Following a decade after its original release, fans were surprised to learn that the highly anticipated sequel would not star the iconic duo—instead, the cult-classic featured Lil Yachty and DC Young Fly.

Along with fans, Redman expressed his shock towards the cast change in an interview with HipHopDX.

“My thing is, you have the Red and Meth brand the [helped build] and created this….those are all our ideas,” Redman tells HipHopDX. “When the new deal came about, we weren’t involved in it.”

According to Redman, the iconic rap duo was working with two writers for the sequel. After a table read, they requested a few changes. They were surprised with the announcement of a sequel they were no longer in.

“Yachty and DC have nothing to with it,” he continues. “It was just all business. I look at it like this man- when one door closes, another one opens, and that just leaves room for [me[ and meth to do a whole new movie.”

The rappers did not own the rights to the movie franchise. Therefore its original production company could move forward without consulting them.

Since Method Man has starred in several series/movies and produces many projects. He is the executive producer of “Wu-Tang: An American Saga,” which airs on Hulu. He also served as an executive producer for the 2004 series “Method and Red.” His manager Garr also has experience in production. Garr served as the executive producer for How High 2, and the original film debuted in 2001.

Along with producing the highly anticipated third installment of How High, Method Man will be starring in two upcoming films. The first film is an action-filled thriller based on a novel with the same name, Last Looks. The rapper will also play in a coming-of-age family drama set in the 80’s titled Once Upon a Time in Staten Island.
