These Marvel Tributes To Classic Hip-Hop Albums Are Seriously Cool

At the end of last year, Marvel released more than 50 comics featuring covers that pay tribute to some of rap’s greatest ever albums, both old and new. “For years, Marvel Comics and hip-hop culture have been engaged in an ongoing dialogue,” said the superhero-yarn giants’ Axel Alonso, who claims the series will “shine a spotlight on the seamless relationship between those two unique forces.” The first batch were revealed in July via Buzzfeed and Uproxx, and are pretty amazing – seminal albums by Dre, Wu-Tang, Lauryn Hill and more are homaged here. Check them out in all their glory below and keep an eye out for more to come…
