The worlds of comic books and hip-hop certainly seem to be bumping into each other more often these days -- whether it's lyrics and album art referencing popular characters and storylines, or even the musicians themselves popping up in comics. In the case of 50 Cent's new street album, "War Angel," it's the concept of a comic that inspired the album's title and best summarized the vibe of the project.
"I used the War Angel title for it [because] I read a comic book through Marvel Comics. The guy who created it, he's done 'Nightmare on Elm Street' and illustrations I'm familiar with," 50 told MTV News. "He created this concept: War Angel. God created these angels to create war. It's necessary on some level. I took the concept. It's kinda from the perspective I grew up under."
While the "War Angel" miniseries that debuted the Brian Pulido character in 2005 was actually published by Avatar Press (not Marvel), we'll forgive 50's attribution confusion. I mean, come on -- do you want to be the one to tell him he made a mistake?
