After the sad passing of Tribe member Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor, fans of the hip-hop group further wondered if ever again we’d hear new music from the Scenario and Bonita Applebum trio. It now appears that we’ll get a taste of it in the upcoming Marvel/Netlix series Luke Cage.
According to producer Cheo Hodari Coker, Tribe member Ali Shaheed Muhammad will be co-scoring the show’s music alongside composer/producer, Adrian Younge (Twelve Reasons to Die II). In an interview with EW (via Vulture) Coker let the news slip saying the show is “very sophisticated. I mean, it’s got a ’90s hip-hop vibe, but it’s really forward-thinking. We have Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad doing the scoring for us.”
The series’ teaser trailer dropped last month and Nas’ Made You Look was sampled as it came to a close, revealing the show’s bulky yellow-lettered logo. The hip-hop vibe is already set and it seems that with the inclusion of Muhammad, fans of the character and the genre are in for quite the treat.
Marvel’s Luke Cage begins streaming on Netflix later this year on September 30.
