Method Man Drops A Bulletproof Verse Showing Love To Luke Cage (Video)
Luke Cage has raised the bar for streaming television, literally. After a massive influx of viewers tuned in to watch the series, network servers couldn’t handle the traffic, resulting in a sitewide blackout. But ratings aside, the show is making history for other reasons, namely the depiction of unadulterated Blackness via its casting, writing, and its musical direction. For starters, each episode of the show is named after a Gang Starr song. Then, there’s the matter of Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Adrian Younge serving as the music advisors, a partnership that has resulted in a bangin’ contribution from none other than Method Man.
On “Bulletproof Love,” Meth served up but one of the countless Hip-Hop facets to the Netflix juggernaut and now, a video has been released which co-stars Mike Colter, who plays Luke Cage. A mix of scenes from the show (including one from an episode featuring Method Man in a cameo role) and footage of Meth spitting his verses sitting alongside Sway, the video captures some of the show’s most exciting elements including the nods to Biggie, Cage’s signature impenetrable hoodie, and the grit and grime of the series’ New York City backdrop.
Meth’s love for the super hero and the series itself, was enough motivation to get him to release his first song of the year. Could this be the sign of a possible Luke Cage soundtrack album in the future?
