musical-notesRapper Joey Bada$$ recently gained attention in the acting world playing Leon in the series Mr. Robot. During an interview with Angie Martinez yesterday, he revealed that he’ll play Inspectah Deck in the forthcoming series Wu-Tang: An American Saga. He added that the series is still shooting but he expects the 10-part drama to premiere on Hulu before the end of the year. RZA and Method Man will serve as executive producers, while Dave East has been cast as Method Man. Joey believes that the show has an authentic feel and that it will do Wu-Tang Clan justice. In addition to American Saga, Joey is busy with other acting endeavors, as the final season of Mr. Robot has started production, and he’ll make a guest appearance on Freeform’s Grown-ish. He also announced a concert scheduled for Aug. 22 at NYC’s Pier 17 to make for his cancelled appearance at the Governor’s Ball. Tickets are available now.
