“[Method Man & Redman] have been aware of the development of BlazeNow for a little while and they love the business plan and like the app and want to be involved,” said Blaze Now CEO Jeremy Carr to Hip Hop DX. “So we went with them to the High Times Cannabis Cup where they performed and we brought a bunch of hats and jumped on a jet with them and flew out to Vegas where they were performing the same night with Lil Wayne. We just got into detail about our business and marketing plans and what we want to do and how they can be involved. Obviously we’re still getting into place to making it official but they already wore our hats and our jackets and told the crowd about us, so it was pretty cool.”
