Joey Bada$$ is expanding his resume as an actor. Speaking to Angie Martinez for an exclusive interview with Power 105, the Pro Era rapper reveals that he has secured a role as Inspectah Deck in the forthcoming Hulu series centered around the Wu-Tang Clan‘s story, Wu-Tang: An American Saga.

“Me and Dave East is in Wu-Tang. I’m Inspectah Deck,” Joey Bada$$ reveals to Angie Martinez. “It’s pretty on point from what I’ve seen, like just from the scenes that I’ve been apart of. I like what they’re doing. I like how they’re doing it. The only thing with TV is it ain’t a music video. You can’t, like, [say] ‘Can I see playback?’ Ain’t none of that… You just have to trust. You have to give your best performance and hope they pick the right take.”

“I just went into the audition and I got about three callbacks, and then on the third one, they said that I had it,” Joey Bada$$ explained to SSENSE last month, recalling how he secured his acting debut.  “I was in high school for screen theater, so I had some experience. And I always knew that if music worked out, then acting would be way easier. It’s definitely one of the passions, and maybe it could become number one. I could definitely see it becoming number one, because I want to do way more films.”
