Marvel’s Luke Cage is widely acclaimed for its touch of classic hip-hop. The Netflix hit series will continue to honor 90s hip-hop in a highly emblematic way in its upcoming new season.
The creator and executive producer of Luke Cage, Cheo Hodari Coker, took to Twitter and casually expressed that the episodes in season two are named after Pete Rock and CL Smooth songs. “Season Two’s episodes are named in honor of PETE ROCK & CL SMOOTH.
@PeteRock you had no idea, did you? Lol,” Coker tweeted.

With Luke Cage season two episodes being named after the songs of one of hip-hop’s most treasured duos, it only tells what the feel of the season may be. Clearly, with classics like “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.),” “Take You There,” “Return of the Mecca” the plot is bound to be filled with a capturing angle of the show’s streak.
Since their 1992 hit single “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.),” the Mount Vernon duo has released two studio albums, Mecca and the Soul Brother (1992) and The Main Ingredient (1994). Talks of a third album surfaced back in 2016 after Pete Rock went on The Breakfast Club and announced the coming of a new album labeling the project as “awesome.” As the pending status of their third studio album stands, the two continue to tour together mostly overseas hitting stages in the UK, Switzerland, and Netherlands.
