The dude who’s playing RZA is extra trash. My boy has the charisma of a shoe and his voice is super annoying, damn near makes the show unwatchable.

Dave East is just Dave East rapping Method man songs. Son playing Ghost is mid to me but still passable.

Other than that man I love this sh*t! The dudes who are playing Rae and ODB are the easy standouts for me.


Are you watching it? What do you think?

He's actually a pretty good actor, good schooling too. But his voice on this show is beyond weird

Everybody says that but RZA picked the dude himself and to me he does look like a young RZA. The voice aint quite right but neither is RZA's natural voice or cadence.

I had a bigger problem with the casting of Ghost. Dude isn't a bad actor, but to me he doesn't have the grit that Ghostface does at all, and doesn't resemble him. Hard to take him seriously.

It's dramatized but it isn't like a lot of things didn't happen. A lot of these stories I already knew before watching so I knew a lot of the major parts are legit. There are some legitimate things they had to change for TV purposes though. For example, RZA got 11 siblings. They obviously couldn't write them all in because they wouldn't be able to find that many actors/actresses and they wouldn't have a compelling story. That part is a lot like "Everybody Hates Chris".

It's a loosely based story about their come up, no need to get upset about the parts that are fabricated or dramatized for TV purposes.

upset isn't really the term I'd use.... Wu is favorite group, well atleast one of em.... a more realistic biopic with input from the entire clan of how everything played would have been doper to me....I'm sure it would have been just as dramatic.... it definitely feels like most of it is stemmed from RZA and some Hulu writers

some of the more artistic/surreal episodes throw me off as well, like the ferry episode or the production/sampling process ... definitely prefer the 1st season over the 2nd but its still watchable/enjoyable...

To me personally, the only ones I feel like they did a great casting job with was with Raekwon, u-god, power and some what odb.

Everybody else, just feel like something us off.
Actors giving me “lifetime biopic actor” vibes.

Rza is somewhat ok for me, only because rza always sounded off when he talked and rap.
And dude playing him voice sounds off, so it goes for me.

Even tho most of know the stories, still feel good visual seeing it, even tho it’s wildly fabricated for tv, still good story telling.

Glad they did this instead of a moviemakers. Can’t wait until to get into making the solo albums.

Watched both seasons last month, It definitely drew me in. The story had me interested as I never really followed wu tang growing up but I questioned it’s authenticity. Dude who played ghost isn’t gritty enough but his acting was pretty good. I hated RZA’s actors voice but I get it. Dave East was literally Dave East which was weird. I liked Rae and ODB the best. All in all it still kept me locked in. Looking forward to season 3 if there is one.

I initially didn’t fu*k with the dude that played Ghost, but people don’t realize that Ghost is an emotional cat. I believe that’s what they were tryna convey with his character. It humanizes him.

Only issue I got with RZA’s actor is the hesitation dialogue he brought on during season 2. Dude is talented but he’s coming off one dimensional in many of his roles cause he got the same demeanor.

The RZA actors voice almost ruins the show. He’s also way too serious and looks like he’s always on the verge of tears. The real RZA was a goof half the time. He had a little bit ODB in him (Bobby Digital). The show completely misses that.
