RAKIM DEBUTS NEW MUSIC IN ‘LUKE CAGE’ SEASON 2
Legendary rapper Rakim premiered new music in season 2 of the Netflix series 'Luke Cage'. The song, “King’s Paradise”, is a homage to the greats who have come from Harlem—among the people Rakim names are Louis Armstrong, Lena Horne, and Malcolm X—and to the show’s star player, Luke Cage. In the series, Rakim performs the song to a packed crowd, at the fictitious nightclub Paradise. See performance clip below:
In addition, the classic song “I Ain’t No Joke” also popped up as the soundtrack to the season two announcement trailer earlier this year.
