Run The Jewels’ “Heart Is Full” Song Featured in New Trailer for Netflix Show ‘Luke Cage’
The new Luke Cage TV series will premiere on Netflix on Sept. 30. Today (Aug. 9), Marvel unleashes a new trailer, which features Run The Jewels' track "Heart Is Full."
The song comes in around the 1:30 mark. The clip includes part of El-P's verse, in which he spits, "I'm from a city where havin' a heart is not suggested / I'm a maverick at tappin' backs, I'm a savage inventor / I'm cleanin' braces with tongue and vac and a bag of dentures." The trailer also contains part of the hook, and then the video shimmies into Ol' Dirty Bastard's classic track, "Shimmy Shimmy Ya."
Fans recently learned that every Luke Cage episode will be named after a Gang Starr song. The show will also feature a lot of Wu-Tang.
A couple weeks ago, the show's executive producer Cheo Hodari Coker explained the selection process for the lead role. Coker told a crowd at Comic-Con in San Diego, Calif., “When I think about what’s going on in the world right now, the world is ready for a bulletproof black man.” He then described the show as a whole, saying, “It’s what I call the Wu Tang-ification of the Marvel universe.”
