Luke Cage Meets Method Man in the Best ‘Luke Cage’ Trailer Yet
Netflix's series, Luke Cage will be released on Sept. 30, and in what's the best trailer yet, our bullet-proof super hero (Mike Colter) meets Method Man, for a moment that's guaranteed to put a smile on any hip-hop head's face.
Of course, the entire series has been heavily doused with hip-hop—from the songs in the trailer (this one features Nas' "Made You Look" while another featured Run the Jewels' Mike Snow remix "Heart Is Full"), to hip-hop references. In one scene, evil bad guy Cornell Stokes (played by Mahershala Ali) stands in front of a photo of the late Notorious B.I.G. wearing a bejeweled crown and he says, “Everybody wants to be a king.” To that end, the series executive producer Cheo Hodari Coker, a former hip-hop journalist, revealed that every episode from Luke Cage will be named after a Gang Starr song.
Luke Cage debuts on Netflix on Sept. 30. Watch the latest trailer for the anticipated show above.
