Marvel has already incorporated rap acts into their covers, working with Rae Sremmurd and Run The Jewels last year, but now they've given a couple of "classic" album covers the comic book treatment. Cover such as De La Soul's 3 Feet High And Rising, Ol' Dirty Bastard's 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version, The Notorious B.I.G.'s Ready To Die, 50 Cent's Get Rich Or Die Tryin', and A$AP Rocky's Long.Live.ASAP have now been reworked with classic Marvel characters, and there are plenty more to come.
“For years, Marvel Comics and Hip Hop culture have been engaged in an ongoing dialog,” Marvel EIC Axel Alonso revealed. “Beginning this October, we will shine a spotlight on the seamless relationship between those two unique forces.”
50 new interpretations of rap covers will be on their way in October. Which would you like to see done and with what superhero? Check out the first wave of art in the galery above.
