The Wu Tang Clan have somehow managed to transcend multiple genres of art with the mythology behind their music and their latest incarnation is going to be in the form of a television show.

Not content with having dominated music and video games at times over the past 30 years, the story of the legendary rap group is now going to be told on screen in the ten part television series Wu Tang: An American Saga that will be available to stream on Hulu from September 4th. The show has been co-created by RZA himself – so you know it’s going to be authentic – and Alex Tse – who co-wrote Zack Snyder’s 2009 version of Watchmen – and will focus on early ’90s New York at the height of the crack cocaine epidemic as RZA strives to unite a dozen young black men that are torn between music and crime but eventually rise to become the unlikeliest of American success stories.
We’re still very much in teaser territory at this point but I’m sure you can agree that this has the potential to be very very good – check it out below and see what you think:
I mean that is going to be good isn’t it, there just isn’t really any two ways around it. Might be a bit of a problem watching it on Hulu as none of my former flatmates left it on my smart TV, but I’m sure there will be some way of getting around that. At least I hope there will be because I don’t wanna miss this one.
