(Above… LL Cool J’s “Bad”)
“Comics and hip-hop share a common narrative: They’re all about underdogs struggling, striving and persevering against overwhelming odds,” Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso told 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 second installment of the Marvel hip-hop posters follows the 2015 collection, which featured various superheroes reimagined in De La Soul’s 3 Feet High, Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, and A$AP Rocky’s Long.Live.A$AP.
Check out the six-poster collection below.
