Lil Yachty Will Star in ‘How High 2′ Film
It looks like Lil Yachty will soon be flexing his acting chops. In a video posted to his Twitter account on Tuesday (Sept. 25), Lil Boat announced that he'll be starring in the long-awaited sequel to the 2001 film How High—How High 2.
"I got some exciting news for all my fans and all my haters out there, and all the smokers," Yachty, who recently teased a new album, said. "I want to be the first to announce that we are in production of the long-awaited sequel of How High 2, starring me, you know what I'm saying?"
For those who know Yachty, he may seem like an odd choice for a film about marijuana, given that he doesn't smoke or drink. However, according to MTV, Lil Boat will be acting as the character of "Roger," who is the entrepreneurial younger brother of one of the main characters. No word yet on who will be the protagonists of the film just yet—but with any luck, maybe Method Man and Redman will make their return. The film is set to hit theaters in 2019.
How High 2 started filming in Lil Yachty's hometown of Atlanta today. Not only will it be a short commute for the 2016 XXL Freshman, but he's also be among friends. The CEOs of his label, Quality Control, Kevin “Coach K” Lee, and Pierre “Pee” Thomas, will also reportedly be credited as executive producers of the film, as will Yachty.
