(Luke Cage: Season 2 Soundtrack)

[Verse 1]
Welcome to Harlem, the home of innovating
Legacy, story of Gods killing Satan
Where they honor Harlem's father Philip Payton
The renaissance in the making
Ellington, Garvey, Joe Lewis, Lena Horne
Malcom, Maya, Lewie Armstrong
Now crime is the new crave, so there's a new crusade
So Salute to Luke Cage, fight for the cause
All the way to the top, rivalry wars, life can be lost,
No type of remorse
Forward always for Pop, until the crown is rightfully yours
But success brings sacrifice
And no one was at stake, the pressure could crack a pipe
Where everything has a price
But you pay with your life in the King's Paradise

[Chrous]
You're king-king
You're king-king
You're king-king
You're king-king
Luke Cage
Paradise
You're king-king
You're king-king
You're king-king
You're king-king
You're king

[Verse 2]
His story is complicated
He got framed for a crime and incarcerated
Locked up his alter ego [?]
Experimented on, nothing but superhero skills
But everyday, he get twice as strong
Bulletproof skin but his life is torn
The only lady he ever loved in his life is gone
Escaped prison, got to fight to right his wrong
No question, he gon' take on the whole hood in a hoodie
No weapons, and no cape on
One by one and knock 'em out
Until Cottonmouth is forgot about
But success brings sacrifice
And if you thinking it's a piece of cake, you can have a slice
It's like gambling with a pair of dice
But you can pay with your life in the King's Paradise

[Outro]
You're king-king
You're king-king
You're king-king
You're king-king
Luke Cage
Superhero skills
You're king
