The series stars Shameik Moore (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse), Ashton Sanders (Moonlight), Siddiq Saunderson (Messiah), Julian Elijah Martinez, Marcus Callender, Zolee Griggs (Ballers), Zolee Griggs, Dave East, TJ Atoms, Johnell Young, Erika Alexander (Get Out) and Marcus Callender (Power).
RZA and Alex Tse (Superfly) created, wrote, and executive produced the series. Method Man and Brian Grazer are producers.
