Hulu’s “Wu-Tang: An American Saga” takes viewers back to the ’90s to tell the origin story of the influential rap group.
The series centers around Bobby Diggs — better known as founding Wu-Tang member RZA — and his struggles with violence and drugs growing up on Staten Island, which heavily influenced his music. But it wouldn’t be Wu-Tang without the rest of his clan.
Focused on the formation of the East Coast rap group behind four gold and platinum studio albums, the series brings viewers through the relationships Bobby forms with many of the original members: GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God and Masta Killa. Several of them, including Method Man, RZA and Ghostface Killah, served as executive producers and consultants on the series.
“Wu-Tang” picks up with action, bringing you into the middle of a family drug war between crews in the Staten Island neighborhoods of Stapleton and Park Hill. If you’re in need of a cheat sheet to follow along, here’s a guide to who’s who in the main cast.
