RZA is a man of many talents. He’s an accomplished musician, the de facto leader of one of the most influential hip-hop groups in history, a SAG-nominated actor, decorated filmmaker and New York Times Bestselling author, but one of the toughest thing he’s ever had to do is tell the story of the Wu-Tang Clan in the Hulu series Wu-Tang: An American Saga.
Speaking to HYPEBEAST just shortly after An American Saga first debuted, RZA explained that the hardest part of working on the show is that “it’s a very tedious job.” Two years and a second season later, he and his team were forced to face their biggest challenge yet: a pandemic. In addition to the trouble that came hand-in-hand with the extended period of time between seasons, the pandemic caused production and season premiere delays, on-set restrictions and the forced recasting of an important character. There was also the matter of introducing additional cast members to the mix, which can present its own set of trials behind-the-scenes and on-camera.
