Total geek out moment over here. I grew up with the hip-hop of the '80s and '90s, and one of my favorite groups of all time is Gang Starr, featuring the smooth lyrics of the late Guru and greatest producer ever, DJ Premier. And apparently Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker is a fan, too, because every episode of the Marvel series' first season is going to be titled after a Gang Starr track. "I'm busting, Jerry! I'm busting"!
Coker revealed the titles of the first three episodes and will continue to do so each week until the show debuts on September 30th.

Okay, just looking ahead they have to have an episode titled "Take It Personal", and maybe "Just to Get a Rep", and watch out if there's one titled "Ex-Girl to the Next Girl" because that could mean a nasty run-in with Jessica Jones. Hopefully this means Gang Starr will feature heavily in the soundtrack, too.
