The first season of the series featured real-life rappers Joey Bada$$ as Inspectah Deck and Dave East as Method Man. Dave East will reprise his role, but Joey Bada$$ has been replaced by This Is Us and Watchmen actor Uyoata Udi. The first season centered on the crew’s history before the formation of the group; Season 2 will focus on the creation of their debut LP Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).
Last month, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York announced it had sold the sole copy of Wu-Tang Clan’s album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin to an undisclosed buyer for an undisclosed sum, after seizing it from Martin Shkreli to satisfy an outstanding $7.36 million judgment levied against the disgraced pharma executive. Last spring, the clan released both a lullaby album and a plant-based, vegan hand sanitizer called “Protect Ya Hands.”
