EXCLUSIVE: JaQwan J. Kelly is set to recur in Hulu’s Wu Tang: An American Saga as Jamel/Masta Killa.

Wu-Tang: An American Saga, from Wu-Tang Clan frontman The RZA, writer Alex Tse, Imagine Television and 20th Television, tells the story of the band starting in early 1990s. It looks at the group’s members, who grew up during the height of the crack cocaine epidemic, and tracks the Clan’s formation — a vision of Bobby Diggs aka The RZA, who strives to unite a dozen young black men who are torn between music and crime but eventually rise to become the unlikeliest of American success stories.

Season 2 picks up six months after the close of Season 1, with the Wu-Tang Clan having to overcome even more obstacles, odds and past beefs as they come together to create the iconic album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Along the way, introducing more members of the Wu Clan.

Kelly’s Masta Killa  is a spiritual fighter dedicated to spreading the message of the Five Percent Nation. When he starts hanging out with the Clan, no one knows about his hidden talent on the mic. Jamel is reserved and humble with a worldly perspective. The opposite of boisterous, Jamel exudes a strong inner confidence. As Jamel spends more time with the Clan, Bobby and GZA help foster his musical potential.
