Marvel Reimagine Classic Hip Hop Albums

The superhero movie and comic book giants, Marvel pay respects to classic hip hop and rap albums over the last 20 years.

Marvel has always held a fairly popular standing in youth and even adult culture for the last two decades but has recently expanded in the last four or five years with a new superhero movie releasing annually. Now the people over at Marvel have combined the cartoon drawings of your favourite masked vigilante with your favourite hip hop and rap albums. With more than fifty planned, they have already released new covers for Dr. Dre, Old Dirty Bastard, 50 Cent, De La Soul, Tyler the Creator, Wu Tang Clan, Notorious B.I.G etc allowing a fun and light hearted take on some classic albums in the music genre.

“For years, Marvel Comics and hip-hop culture have been engaged in an ongoing dialogue, Beginning this October, we will shine a spotlight on the seamless relationship between those two unique forces.”
