The ‘Wu-Tang: An American Saga’ Hulu-featured series has made major noise since its 2019 debut, and although the pandemic put a hold on the forthcoming second season, “Saga” star Johnell Young lets us know that we are all in for an amazing new offering.

Young is definitely in good company as fellow music co-star Dave East has helped bring life to their famed characters GZA and Method Man, respectively. The two have not only brought the hip-hop icons to life on the small screen but both Young and East have also gone head-to-head and balled each other up. While Young does admit that East and Migos rapper Quavo have some skill, they can’t see him on the court. Speaking on his experience of portraying Wu-Tang member GZA.

Johnell explains to Power Mornings co-hosts Teddy Mora, Demi Lobo, and Noah Ayala that the legendary rapper GZA has made himself available to him by helping him capture his true essence for the television show.

Johnell goes on to share what he learned about himself during the lockdown period of the coronavirus pandemic, how Quavo was the first first to give him respect for his “Saga” portrayal, where he sees his acting career heading, and chooses between Kanye West’s ‘Donda’ or Drake’s ‘Certified Lover Boy’ albums.
