Wu-Tang Clan: Adds another Rapper to the Cast

Another rapper has joined the cast of Hulu’s Wu-Tang Clan drama.

Brooklyn’s Joey Bada$$ is following in the footsteps of Dave East, confirming his role in Wu-Tang Clan: An American Saga. Joey will play Inspectah Deck. East will play Method Man, a casting decision the actual Meth co-signed.

Dave says the show is in production with plans to release this year. He jokes, “Any time I ain’t really gotta be there every day, it’s going great!”

Hot Takes:

  • The show was created by RZA. Method Man is an executive while GZAGhostface, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa and ODB’s estate serve as consulting producers.
  • He’s got a point — it must be great to be part of a big production without having to spend every day on set just waiting to film a short scene here or there.
  • This series has the potential to be really good.
  • Joey’s acting chops include a supporting role on USA’s Mr. Robot.
