Season Two’s episodes are named in honor of PETE ROCK & CL SMOOTH. @PeteRock you had no idea, did you? Lol.

Pete Rock, who apparently didn’t know about the honor, posted the season two trailer on his Instagram:
If you remember, the episodes in season one of Luke Cage were named after Gang Starr songs.
See the original story below:
A new Luke Cage teaser trailer for its forthcoming second season has been released.
The 27-second clip finds the Harlem hero calling out his haters to the soundtrack of Eric B. and Rakim‘s “I Ain’t No Joke.”
“You wanna test me? Step up. I’m right here,” Cage declares.
The second season will premiere on June 22. Late last year came set photos from the forthcoming season showing Cage and the Iron Fist working together. One picture showed the two vigilante superheroes in what appears to be a remodeled Harlem’s Paradise, the club that belonged to Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes (Mahershala Ali) during the show’s first season.
Prior to that, another set photo was released showing Cage with Misty Knight and her new bionic arm. Knight lost one of her arms in The Defenders mini series by villain Bakuto.
In the comics, Knight’s bionic arm was designed by Tony Stark and Stark Industries after she lost the limb in a bombing. The arm grants her superhuman strength as well as concussive blasts, magnetism, and technopathy. However, it is unlikely that Stark designed Knight’s arm in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the Iron Fist instead taking care of that responsibility.
