Titles For Episode 9 & 10 Of ‘Luke Cage’ Announced

Luke Cage

Luke Cage has become a highly anticipated property for Marvel fans. We were first introduced to Cage within Jessica Jones but now he is taking center stage. The first season will be arriving on Netflix on Friday, September 30th. Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker took to Twitter to announce the titles for episodes 9 and 10 of the series.

These titles and those previously released are inspired by rap duo, Gang Starr. Coker has been very open about how music will influence Cage but the reason behind the songs selected for episode titles are still up for speculation.

Not only will each episode of the upcoming Marvel & Netflix series be titled after a Starr track but the first season will feature multiple musical performances from notable and high profiled hip-hop artists. Some of the artists that will appear include Method Man, Faith Evans, Method Man, Charles Bradley, The Delfonics, and Raphael Saadiq. Speaking with the Los Angeles Times Hero Complex, showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker revealed the following.

“Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad in terms of the score.  We had a 30-piece orchestra – we live scored the entire series.  People don’t really do that anymore.  It give [the score] a certain breadth – it really invokes Isaac Hayes, it invokes Curtis Mayfield but does it in its own way, that has its own special hip-hop flavor.  Not only what Adrian does in terms of having always used analog, recording and using real instruments but also the vibe of of Ali Shaheed Muhammad being one of the architects of A Tribe Called Quest.  But then, in terms of actual on camera appearances, we have everyone from Faith Evans and  Raphael Saadiq to Charles Bradley, to The Delfonics, Method Man and Jidenna.  We’ve got some really great performances.  It’s this mixture of music matched with action and there’s not a dull moment the entire season.”

After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin,” begins the official blurb, “Luke Cage becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But he is soon pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.

All episodes of Luke Cage will be available to stream on Netflix starting on September 30th.
