Season 2 of the bulletproof Marvel/Netflix series Luke Cage looms on the horizon, and anticipation of the premiere, showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker has revealed the full list of music-inspired episode titles.
According to Coker's tweet, all thirteen episodes will be named after songs by the hip-hop duo Pete Rock & CL Smooth. If you'll recall, the episodes in Season 1 took a similar approach, using names inspired by the music of Gang Starr.

2. Straighten It Out
4. I Get Physical
5. All Souled Out
6. The Basement
7. On and On
8. If It Aint Rough, It Ain't Right
9. For Pete's Sake
10. The Main Ingredient
11. The Creator
12. Can't Front On Me.
13. They Reminisce Over You.
The episode titles aren't the only music-themed trend that will return in the upcoming season. Much like Method Man Faith Evans, D-Nice and Jidenna appeared in Season 1, Season 2 will feature cameo appearances by Joi, Gary Clark Jr., Esperanza Spalding, Ghostface Killah, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Stephen Marley, Jadakiss, KRS-One and Rakim.
“When you say, ‘We’re going to shoot you like no one else has shot you on a show,’ and you can show long tracking shots of Raphael Saadiq or you can show the intercut footage of Sharon Jones, they were like, ‘We have to do the show,'” Coker said last month. “The people I would see out in the store who were not the typical Faith Evans fans would say, ‘Hey! I saw you on Luke Cage!'”
Arriving on June 22 on Netflix, the second season of Luke Cage stars Mike Colter, Simone Missick, Alfre Woodard, Theo Rossi, Rosario Dawson, Mustafa Shakir and Gabrielle Dennis.
