“We’re still shooting, but it comes out this year though,” he said. “It’s going good. Any time I ain’t really gotta be there every day, it’s going great!”

Joey now joins Dave East, who will portray Method Man in the series. Recently, Meth explained why Dave was portraying him in the show.

“I cannot play myself as young myself, it wouldn’t even look right,” the rapper and actor said. “I saw it as an opportunity for someone like myself when I first got into it, ’cause there weren’t a lot of people giving you a chance to show that you can do it.”

“So when I seen Dave’s name in the pot I was like, ‘yeah he’s just like me. He wants to be an actor, fuck it, give him a shot,'” he added.

Wu-Tang: An American Saga will have a 10 series run on Hulu.
