One of the many great things about the Luke Cage trailer was its pitch-perfect music by none other than the Duke of New York.


Here’s the whole tune, “Walk on By”, off Isaac Hayes’s 1969 album Hot Buttered Soul.

Hayes would eventually follow this up with the legendary 1971 soundtrack from Shaft. Here’s the whole double LP set, just in case you’re in the mood:

The other Luke Cage tune sounds “old school”, but it’s not. It’s a remix of a modern sample-heavy tune, but the classic vibe is definitely still there...

So, What it is! Can you dig it?


These collections are also both available on vinyl, just as God and Black Moses intended ;-)
