Wu-Tang Clan on Hulu
Produced by RZA...Was expecting your generic biopic series, and it is that, but strives to be something better. I’ve seen the first season and I’m anxious for more. It’s a slow start with most of the core members in the drug game, and the series focus on RZA and Ghostface Killah. There is a lot of commentary on urban life and music business. But every few episodes, there is something unexpected and original...which is what I expect from RZA. The music is on point throughout, also as you’d expect from RZA. It’s very well-acted, and while prob sensationalized some, it feels credible.
Big P from Sopranos and Joey Bada$$ from Mr. Robot are in it. I can’t say I’d run out and get Hulu just to see it, but if you already have it and have any interest in hip-hop. I’d check it out.
Edit: a criticism...while the show spends a fair amount of time with the female characters and gives them strong, positive voices, their motivations are mostly defined by the men around them.
