Marvel’s Luke Cage makes its debut on Netflix today, but that isn’t the only reason to be excited: the series is scored entirely by Adrian Younge and A Tribe Called Quest’s Ali Shaheed Muhammad, which means one of Marvel’s baddest dudes is getting the soundtrack he deserves from one of hip-hop’s best production duos.
Aside from composing Luke Cage‘s musical backdrop, Adrian and Ali have also recorded a full album to accompany the series — and on the first single, they draft in Method Man (who also makes a cameo in the show) for a bulletproof banger. The single is out now on iTunes, while the whole soundtrack drops October 7.
On October 6, Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad will be performing the Luke Cage score live alongside Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and a 40-piece orchestra in Los Angeles. Peep the details below.
On Oct 6, ArtDontSleep presents a LIVE performance of pieces from the Netflix original series „Marvel’s Luke Cage“ curated by soundtrack composers Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Adrian Younge, along with a 40-piece orchestra conducted by Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, hosted by Russell Peters & Wayne Brady, with a Dj sets by NO I.D.; visit ARTDONTSLEEP.COM for more info.
