Synopsis for "Blowin' Up the Spot"

  • Synopsis not yet written.


  • The Gang Starr song the episode is named after is "Blowin' Up the Spot", from their album Hard to Earn. The song's boasts that Guru can defeat you with mere words can be seen in Diamondback, Luke's enemy, and his preachy nature.
  • The song featured in the episode is "King Of New York" by Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge.


  • Diamondback's first lines, his taunts to Luke, are references to lines in the 1979 film The Warriors.
  • During the scene where Diamondback holds Misty at gunpoint, there's a dumpster seen with the logo "Timely Trash". The logo is the same as the Timely Comics logo.
