Marvel drops insanely cool new hip hop covers

Not content with dominating the cinema box office, Marvel has its sights on the urban music scene. Well, sort of.

The comic book company has assembled a whole new batch of variant hip hop-inspired on 2 Dope Boyz, based on artwork from artists Future, Masta Ace, Consequence, CZARFACE, and Blackalicious. 

Future’s Beast Mode – a mixtape produced with Zaytoven – gets turned into a Monsters Unleashed cover. Masta Ace‘s 1995 classic Sittin’ On Chrome mutates into an Inhumans vs. X-Men tribute. Consequence’s Don’t Quit Your Day Job is reimagined with Slapstick – a lesser known hero with the powers of a Looney Tunes style character (seriously) – while CZARFACE’s Every Hero Needs a Villain gets a new cover star in Thanos (let's face it, the biggest villains of them all) and Blackalicious’ Blazing Arrow gets a new Hawkeye cover (who else?)
