Fantastic Marvel Hip Hop Album Covers

X-Men.jpg

We imagine that Thor can lay down a big beat. Iron Man you'd think would be good on the wheels of steel and if anyone was Notoriously B.I.G. it's the Hulk.

So it makes perfect sense that Marvel has decided to reimagine a host of iconic hip hop album covers featuring their famous characters. From October, the company will begin releasing over 50 comics with covers paying tribute to some rap classics, and they've released the first batch this week.

Marvel's Axel Alonso said "For years, Marvel Comics and hip-hop culture have been engaged in an ongoing dialogue," adding that the series will "shine a spotlight on the seamless relationship between those two unique forces."

We're not entirely sure what that means, but never mind, here's a host of great covers, starting with classics by Lauryn Hill, 50 Cent, De La Soul and many more - enjoy.
