Marvel is pleased to announce fans will have another chance to get their hands on some of the popular Marvel Hip-Hop Variants. In their latest rollout, rappers Logic, Pusha T and Tech N9ne as well as rap veterans De La Soul and Cypress Hill received comic-book redos of their album covers. Have a look through some of the awesome hip-hop covers that have inspired Marvel. These are really worth collecting.
“Comics and hip hop share a common narrative: They’re all about underdogs struggling, striving and persevering against overwhelming odds,” said Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso over email to Playboy. “So it’s no surprise that so many rappers have been influenced by the Marvel mythology or embraced the Marvel heroes over the decades. The hip hop covers were our way of showing that the love is reciprocal. A lot of the writers, artists and editors that make Marvel Comics are inspired by hip-hop, and it shows in their work.”
