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

Last season, “Luke Cage” paid major homage to rap group Gang Starr.
The interpolation of classic rap music is nothing new for the Luke Cage series, last season each episode was named after Gang Starr songs. They also enlisted Method Man in a cameo role. In the eleventh episode, he passes Cage in a convenience store on his way to another errand. It’s unclear what Pete Rock & CL Smooth songs will be used in the forthcoming season of Luke Cage since the episode list has yet to be revealed. (All Black Media)
