Marvel’s Hip-Hop Variants (part 2)

Here is part two of the album cover swipes Marvel plans to release with their latest reboot of all titles. I’m sure these will all be worth tons and you should buy them heavily so that you can sell them in the future to put your kids through college…that’s what I plan on doing!

All-New Wolverine

All-New Wolverine

DMX: Flesh of My Flesh Blood of My Blood

DMX: Flesh of My Flesh Blood of My Blood

This album wasn’t nearly as good as DMX’s first but Slippin was always a song that spoke to me.

Ms Marvel

Ms Marvel

Lauryn Hill: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill

Lauryn Hill: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill

The ex-Fugee member decided to branch out on her own. Like her music but not a fan of Ms. Hill myself.

Howard the Duck

Ol’ Dirty Bastard: Return to the 36 Chambers

Ol’ Dirty Bastard: Return to the 36 Chambers

The Wu-Tang Clan had such a big influence on me during my high school and college years that I actually started writing rap lyrics with some friends of mine. We called ourselves the Jew-Tang Clan! I was the Ol’ Jewish Bastard! Who says Khoi and Wade are the only funny ones in this group!!

Avengers

The Roots: Iladelph Halflife

The Roots: Illadelph Halflife

Not an album I’m familiar with but the homage is pretty spot on.

Hercules

Lil B: Black Flame

Lil B: Black Flame

I have no idea who this guy is…guess I’m too old

Spider-Man & Deadpool

Spider-Man & Deadpool

Eric B and Rakim: Paid in Full

Eric B and Rakim: Paid in Full

Not my favorite album by Eric B and Rakim, but I’m glad they’re being celebrated in this series of covers.

The Mighty Thor

MF Doom and Madlib: Madvillainy

MF Doom and Madlib: Madvillainy

Last week I included a cover for what I thought was The Mighty Thor 1. Apparently there is this version as well. Not sure which is the one that will be used.

All-New Hawkeye

All-New Hawkeye

Pete Rock and CL Smooth: Mecca and the Soul Brother

Pete Rock and CL Smooth: Mecca and the Soul Brother

They Reminisce Over You is like my gateway drug into hip-hop…once I heard this song I was hooked!

Spider-Man

Spider-Man

Nas: Illmatic

Nas: Illmatic

Nas: It Was Written

Nas: It Was Written

Maybe I included both of these albums because they were both so good. Maybe I included them because they are actual swipes of each other. Either way if you weren’t a Nas fan before, you will be if you give a listen to either of these masterpieces.

Squadron Supreme

Wu-Tang Clan: Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers

Wu-Tang Clan: Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers

This album taught me the significance of fat bags of skunk and white owl blunts.
