In the 2001 film "How High," rappers Method Man (of Wu-Tang Clan fame) and Redman costarred as students who ace their college entrance exam with help from some herbal essence, so it makes complete sense the pair would headline the latest round of the Smoker's Club tour, which visits Newport Music Hall on Friday, Oct. 24.

In the 2001 film ďHow High,Ē rappers Method Man (of Wu-Tang Clan fame) and Redman costarred as students who ace their college entrance exam with help from some herbal essence, so it makes complete sense the pair would headline the latest round of the Smokerís Club tour, which visits Newport Music Hall on Friday, Oct. 24.

Onstage, as in the film, the duo has an easy camaraderie, honed over the course of two albums (Blackout!, released in 1999, and Blackout! 2, from 2009), countless shows, and a string of advertisements shilling for a deodorant company. Though the rappers donít shy from dropping stoner admissions, their songs typically arenít as hazy or blunted as their reputation suggests, and itís not unusual to hear the two trade intricate rhymes with all the grace and flair of the Showtime-era Los Angeles Lakers running the fast break.

B-Real, Berner and Mick Jenkins open the show.
