When fans saw the first Luke Cage trailer, one of the most outstanding elements of the preview was the hip-hop soundtrack. All the episodes of the series are named after Gang Starr tracks and come together to form a complete “album”, so it is safe to say that embracing hip-hop culture is one of the major objectives of the show.
The show’s official Twitter account has just released a video showcasing the music and artists from the series. Check it out below:
