We’ve been getting updates on this project for a minute now, but now it’s finally official: Hulu has dropped the first trailer for the highly-anticipated miniseries Wu-Tang: An American Saga.
The 10-episode drama, which chronicles how Hip-Hop’s most celebrated crew first formed like Voltron, features a star-studded lineup of young stars on the rise. The RZA will be played by Ashton Sanders, who had a breakout role with Moonlight and turned heads earlier this year with HBO’s adaptation of Native Son. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse star Shameik Moore takes on the coveted role of Raekwon, meanwhile new age rappers Joey Bada$$ and Dave East will pay homage to their OGs by starring as Inspectah Deck and Method Man, respectively. The show was co-created and written by Alex Tse and The RZA, with Meth signed on to executive produce the project. According to the show’s official IMDb page, it looks like two actors will also be playing the roles of fellow rap legends Eric B. & Rakim, so definitely expect a few surprises to pop up throughout the series. We can’t wait!
Check out the trailer for ‘Wu-Tang: An American Saga‘ above, and expect the series to premiere starting September 4 exclusively on Hulu.
