See Your Favorite Hip-Hop Albums Cartoonified By Marvel Comics
Featuring Wu-Tang Clan, Notorious B.I.G., A$AP Rocky, Tyler, the Creator, Lauryn Hill, and more.
The intersection between comic books and music just got stronger. At the beginning of the week, news broke that Grimes designed the cover of a new comic book, and now a handful of hip-hop album covers have been reinterpreted by Marvel Comics, as Buzzfeed and Uproxx report. The comic giant took on iconic artwork for the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Notorious B.I.G., A$AP Rocky, Tyler, the Creator, Lauryn Hill, 50 Cent, De La Soul, Dr. Dre, Ol' Dirty Bastard, A Tribe Called Quest, and Eric B. & Rakim to start. Marvel plans on releasing more than 50 covers. "For years, Marvel Comics and hip-hop culture have been engaged in an ongoing dialogue,” Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso said in a press release. "Beginning this October, we will shine a spotlight on the seamless relationship between those two unique forces." Check out a few images from the first batch above and below and see the rest at Buzzfeed and Uproxx.
