– DJ D-Nice

Per a Netflix release, several of the artists included in the soundtrack will perform live on the show and provide a diegetic score to Luke’s ass-kicking “inside Harlem’s hottest nightclub, and den of Mariah Dillard’s nefarious deals, Harlem’s Paradi.”

Luke Cage Season 1’s soundtrack was a big hit, featuring artists such as Method Man and Faith Evans and even getting a vinyl release. If Luke Cage gets enough seasons, it could one day collect the entire set of the Wu-Tang Clan.

Adrian Younge (Black Dynamite) and Ali Shaheed Muhammad of A Tribe Called Quest are returning to score season two.

Luke Cage Season 2 picks up shortly after the events of The Defenders and will feature many consequences from that climactic team-up, with Luke having become a Harlem celebrity. Everyone’s favorite Defenders punching bag, Danny Rand, will appear alongside his buddy Luke Cage at some point in season two. 

Luke Cage Season 2 debuts on Netflix on June 22.
