Posted By on March 19, 2007

Redman's upcoming album, Red Gone Wild, isn't even out yet and the New Jersey rapper is looking to the past for his future projects.

"I'm getting back into [the studio] with Muddy Waters 2 right after Red Gone Wild. I already did two songs for it. It ain't gonna be hard, because I'm gonna take it backwards," Redman told AllHipHop.com. "I'ma find old beats that sound like it was [created] during the whole Muddy Waters era. I ain't gonna reach for the new s**t."

Red said that this Muddy Waters continuation would be strictly for his die-hard fans and only hoped to manufacture and distribute the limited edition to the sum of 500,00 units domestically.

Additionally, Red assured that he was going to release a film project that would re-join him with Method Man, a friend and frequent creative collaborator – How High 2.

"The movie is being written – same people," Redman continued. "We getting in the mix right now. Its going to give us some leeway to do something new. I'm trying to direct the movie myself. Its a definite go. To a n***a near you, I don't know when, but its coming."

Red said that he hoped to start filming in late summer or early fall.

"I don't want to be the one to lie [about when it comes out], I gotta bad habit."

Aside from Red Gone Wild, the rapper intends to release another Redman/Method Man Blackout installment and a compilation album with his Gillahouse collective.

Red Gone Wild is due in stores March 27.
