Marvel Previews New Hip-Hop Variants Flipping Albums From De La Soul, Pusha T, and Logic

Earlier this month, Marvel Comics added fly new covers to their Hip-Hop Variants series, which take hip-hop album covers and remix them for new #1 issues of their latest series. That batch was all over the place, taking art for Kevin Gates, the Wu-Tang Clan, LL Cool J, and Chance the Rapper and giving them a proper Marvel rework. With Luke Cage—the most hip-hop original series Marvel has ever done for Netflix—premiering on Netflix today, it made sense that they would hit you over the head with another round of ill covers, with the same high quality outcome.

This new set goes down as follows: U.S. Avengers #1 flips Logic’s The Incredible True Story, while Prowler #1 is a take on Tech N9ne’s Sickology 101. Pusha T’s King Push—Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude is the basis for Unstoppable Wasp #1, Cypress Hill IV looks dope as a Ghost Rider #1 cover, and in what might be one of the illest Hip-Hop Variants, ever, Unworthy Thor #1 is a beautiful rework of De La Soul is Dead (which you can see up above).

Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso tweeted out each, with producer credits to each artist.
