This is the first Marvel feature to use the n word, for which Cheo Hodari Coker had complete trust from Marvel regarding the use of the word in the show. The word is used casually in the series, while some characters, including Cage, prefer not to use it. Coker said the intent was never to use it "in a way where it's flippant. I used it from the standpoint of, if we were going to eavesdrop on a conversation with African-American people with nobody else around, when would this word be used and how would it get used."

You speak to me as if you're not in the presence of death.
Behind the desk in Cottonmouth's office is a very fancy type of flat panel TV that actually mechanically extends from the wall and flips the screen so that one side is a TV monitor while the other is a painting or some other form of art. In some scenes throughout the first 6 episodes or so, there is a small black reading lamp that appears only when the "art-side" is facing out, almost as if the set dressers forgot there was a TV on the other side and that the lamp would have been knocked over if anyone ever turned on the TV.
The first season has its episode titles named after a Gang Starr song.
The second season has its episode titles named after a Pete Rock-C.L. Smooth song.
