Marvel's 'Luke Cage' Enlists Ol' Dirty Bastard Classic for Trailer


Marvel’s Luke Cage is kicking ass with a little help from Ol’ Dirty Bastard‘s “Shimmy Shimmy Ya.”

Cage, who also goes by the moniker, Power Man, is seen ripping car doors from their hinges and breaking walls with ease as ODB’s famous hook rings out. Views hear, “Ooh baby I like it rawww,” as the the man with the diamond skin wreaks havoc against villains in Harlem.

The incorporation of hip-hop with the series is not much of a surprise since A Tribe Called Quest‘s Ali Shaheed Muhammad is scoring the show. Adrian Younge also joined the ATCQ member in curating songs for the series. Younge is known for creating most of the songs for 2009’s Black Dynamite, a blaxploitation parody, as well as producing “Picasso Baby” and “Heaven” off of Jay Z’s Magna Carta…Holy Grail. Younge also lent his talents to the PRhyme, a collaboration album between DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9.

Luke Cage, who debuted in 1972, will be the star of the show for the third Marvel and Netflix collaboration after the success of Daredevil and Jessica Jones. The show, which stars Mike Colter as the titular character, hits the streaming service on Sept. 30.
