2015 seems to be the year of endless comic/hip-hop crossovers -- not that we're complaining. They've all been really cool and most have been super unique, too, especially this set of classic rap albums reimagined with Marvel superheroes. And not long after that, we got Eminem's Relapse album transformed into a comic book cover.
Now, there are three new works to get excited about, courtesy of Marvel. The comic juggernaut flipped one of the year's most-celebrated albums, Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly, into a master portrait of the Guardians of Infinity (a new super-squad that includes every past member of the Guardians of the Galaxy). Spot the benevolent boss Groot lookin' tall in the center.
Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx..., meanwhile, turns into The Totally Awesome Hulk #1...
...and Kool Keith's Black Elvis/Lost In Space becomes Venom: Space Knight #1 (cleverly subtitled "Black Symbiote/Loose In Space").
These three covers are reportedly all for forthcoming titles.
If this trend continues, it won't be long before every stone-cold classic album in the canon has a corresponding comic cover. Dream pick: Wolverine as the Dropout Bear on Kanye West's The College Dropout. Just think of all the "Sad Wolverine" memes it could inspire.
