Def Jam's How High soundtrack comes close to being another Method Man and Redman album, a follow-up to the blunt-smoking duo's successful Blackout! album from two years before. But about halfway through, the soundtrack segues into previously released Def Jam material such as DMX's "Party Up (Up in Here)" and Ludacris' "What's Your Fantasy." As for the newly recorded Meth-Red material featured here, most noteworthy is "Part II," a version of the duo's signature song "How High." Erick Sermon produces this update, which prominently features Toni Braxton on the hook. It's a catchy song, one of the duo's better smoking anthems. Additionally, Meth and Red hook up with Rockwilder and Cypress Hill for an update of War's "Cisco Kid."
