- The Gang Starr song the episode is named after is "You Know My Steez", from their album Moment of Truth. Like the song, the episode celebrates an individual (or a group) single-handedly rectifying a situation with their own style and ease.
- The episode features a musical performance of "100 Days, 100 Nights" by Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings.
- Claire takes a contact number from a flier that's advertising self-defense lessons. The teacher of the class is Colleen Wing, who was later introduced in Marvel's Iron Fist.
- The outfit Misty wears in the final moments of the episode closely resembles her usual attire in the comics.
- Series showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker was planning to ask musician Prince to perform in this episode, but Prince passed away before the episode was filmed.
