This year hasn’t been particularly the best for 1990’s super group A Tribe Called Quest with the passing of beloved Tribe MC, Phife Dawg. Though his loss has been heavily mourned, his legacy has also been rightfully celebrated with concerts and freestyle tributes from popular artists and former collaborators. It looks like his music will be most likely taking it’s talents to Netflix’s upcoming Marvel series Luke Cage. Entertainment Weekly has reported that the show has brought ATCQ producer/DJ Ali Shaheed-Muhammad and producer Adrian Younge on board to score the highly anticipated drama series.
Luke Cage — slated to premiere on the streaming service Friday, September 30 — will star Mike Colter as Luke Cage reprising his highly talked about role from the hit series Jessica Jones. Cheo Hodari Coker, the show’s executive producer, told EW:
“The music will be very sophisticated. I mean, it’s got a ’90s hip-hop vibe, but it’s really forward-thinking.”
Later continuing with:
“We have a lot of different musical appearances, but at the same time, we’ve got the Marvel action. We’ve got drama. I would like this to be, I mean, I know this is heavy but, The Wire of Marvel television, because we really deal with a lot of different issues.”
This wouldn’t be the first time Shaheed-Muhammad and Younge have linked up, with them providing the instrumental for Kendrick Lamar‘s “untitled 06 06.30.2014” off of his brilliant untitled unmastered. album that caught the world by surprise. Coker’s encouraging comments coupled with a riveting story line and Shaheed-Muhammad and Younge partnering up, proves that the sky is limit with this series. Hopefully we’ll get some unreleased Tribe hits (praying emojii), though the likeliness of that is low. Check out the trailer for the highly anticipated series below, and be sure to be on the look out for when it hits Netflix in September.
