For the past few months the Wu-Tang Clan has experienced a sort of resurgence in popularity thanks to their Showtime docu-series Of Mics and Men and more recently their series on Hulu, Wu-Tang: An American Saga.
Though us OG Hip-hop heads never tired of the music from Staten Island’s finest, this new generation is now getting familiar with the iconic Hip-Hop group and taking notice of what they’ve contributed to pop culture via music, movies, and even videogames. Today the Ruler Zig Zag Zig Allah commonly known to y’all as The RZA took to the morning airwaves with actors Erika Alexander (Livin’ Single) and Ashton Sanders (Moonlight) to drop some knowledge on The Breakfast Club while promoting his latest series on Hulu, Wu-Tang: An American Saga.
Taking questions from DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God, the three guests get into topics ranging from American Saga, to why Black women don’t get the same opportunities in Hollywood that Black men do.
Here are the 8 things we learned from The RZA, Erika Alexander, and Ashton Sanders on The Breakfast Club.
