On Wednesday, August 31 Netflix released the first part of the Marvel’s Luke Cage Street Level Hero social video series. These digital videos look to blend fiction with history by taking audiences behind the curtain on the themes that give the show it’s street-level authenticity and cultural relevance.

Part one explores the music that moves the series. Executive producer Cheo Hodari Coker , Mike Colter, Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest), Adrian Younge, A$AP Ferg and Method Man lend their commentary on how each episode is shaped by its score and musical influence.

Marvel’s Luke Cage will premiere on September 30.

Created by Archie Goodwin and John Romita, Sr., Luke Cage is one of the most popular street level heroes in the Marvel Universe who possesses superhuman strength and impenetrable skin. He’s also a friend and frequent business partner with Danny Rand aka Iron Fist, who will also be getting his own series on Netflix starring Finn Jones as the title hero.

“Luke Cage” is the third series in Marvel’s four-series package at Netflix after “Jessica Jones” and “Marvel’s Daredevil.” The last series will be “Iron Fist,” with all four leading into a “Defenders” mini-series.
