'Wu-Tang: An American Saga' Season 2 Episode 3: From Rakeem Prince to RZA
Episode 3 sees Bobby trying to get back with the team again and make music like they did in the past
Bobby Diggs (Ashton Sanders) has finally found the right path and he is ready to take things to the next level by coming back to New York and meeting his boys. In the second episode, we saw Bobby asking Dennis (Siddiq Saunderson) to come with him to New York, but he refuses because of his wife and his newborn. However, it doesn’t stop Bobby from leaving for New York to start a new life there.
Bobby reaches New York and meets up with his old friend Divine (Julian Elijah Martinez). Divine, who is now working at a construction site, takes his Walkman and listens to the new tune Bobby made. Bobby asks him if he liked it or not? Divine says it’s amazing. So, Bobby asks him if he wants to join as he is starting a new career and he’s gonna need him. Divine refuses because of his job. Bobby finds a new place and shifts, asking Divine to think about his offer.
Meanwhile, Dennis believes that he and Shurrie need to have a new house. Shurrie talks to him and says that he should go to New York and work with Bobby so that he can, too, make big in music. He is reluctant to say yes, but Shurrie makes him understand that this will help him in thinking about where they could stay in the future.
Meanwhile, Bobby meets Sha (Shameik Moore) in the studio where he’s working on a track. However, Bobby believes that the beat is shit and he deserves better. He hands out a floppy disk to him and says “we back,” which means he is ready to make some new music. Elsewhere, Dennis has reached New York to meet his brothers and mother.
Bobby reaches his new place and starts figuring out his life. He has already set up his instruments and is ready for hustling out there once again. He makes Ol’ Dirty Bastard (TJ Atoms) and Gary (Johnell Young) listen to his tune that makes them go crazy. Ol said, “Prince Rakeem strike again.” But Bobby says that he has left Rakeem in the jail cell in Ohio.
He says that he might not be a “prince” anymore, but he is still a “ruler.” Bobby comes up with his new name: RZA. Every character signifies something. Like R is for Ruler, Z is for zig-zag-zig and A is for Allah. And that’s how we got RZA.
The episode was all about Bobby trying to meet his friends and make a team together. Ol and Gary have already signed up. Dennis has already reached New York, so he’s surely going to be a part of Bobby’s group. Sha has already got a taste of Bobby’s music, so his involvement is inevitable.
Meanwhile, Divine is finding it hard to make ends meet, so he’s also thinking of joining Bobby and complete the team.
