The song, "King's Paradise", produced by Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad who are also the show's music supervisors, name drops Harlem greats like Malcolm X, Louis Armstrong, Lena Horne and the show's titular character Luke Cage.

According to the site, showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker and his writing team presented scripts to Netflix, which was "not particularly impressed" with their work.

After rising tensions the past month, that conclusion was scrapped as it all went distinctly south in the last 48 hours.

It's had many iterations and a rich cast of characters that provides Netflix with plenty of opportunity - if they so wish. Netflix has pulled the plug on Luke Cage, Variety reports.

"It eventually escalated to behind-the-scenes turmoil in the past two days and demands for changes in creative reign". With Marvel and Netflix seemingly intractable and in different sides of the disputes, a harsh cancelation became the only viable exit strategy, it appears. Iron Fist's solo comic book series was canceled by Marvel due to low sales. Those words were also used on an image shared by the official Marvel's Luke Cage social media account following the announcement of the show's cancellation.

Coincidentally, the initial "Luke Cage" season two trailer features Rakim's "I Ain't No Joke" classic.

Rumors have persisted that perhaps "Iron Fist" and now "Luke Cage" could be resurrected as part of the upcoming Disney streaming service that will launch in 2019 but that hasn't been determined yet.

After the end of the Finn Jones-led Iron Fist on October 12 and now Luke Cage down for the count, the number of Marvel series on Netflix has been cut by 40%.

The Harlem Hero's departure from the small screen has some fans wondering what the future holds for another Marvel Netflix show, Jessica Jones. He later reprised the role in the Marvel team-up series The Defenders.
