Marvel Has Paired Spider-Man With Lil Wayne For Their Hip-Hop Variant Artwork Campaign

Marvel Has Paired SpiderMan With Lil Wayne For Their Hip Hop Variant Artwork Campaign

Marvel are reworking various hip-hop album artworks with some of their superheroes for their huge refresh of their classic comic book titles.

The Editor In Chief of Marvel Comics, Axel Alonso, said that the Marvel and hip-hop relationship makes sense because they are both “really big powerful threads of pop culture”, as well as how over the years he has heard plenty of rappers reference superheroes in their music.

One of the hip-hop album covers that Marvel have paid homage to is Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter IV artwork. You can check out the variant cover that was created by Gyimah Gariba above, courtesy of The FADER!

Tech N9ne Says Working With Lil Wayne Was The Highest Point Of His Career

Tech N9ne Says Working With Lil Wayne Was The Highest Point Of His Career

XXL recently asked Tech N9ne what was the highest point of his career and he answered Lil Wayne hitting him up to work on Tha Carter IV. Pretty cool!

I couldn’t believe that Wayne hit me up for Tha Carter IV. And never met me. Couldn’t believe that. I’ve always been the outcast. The dude with the facepaint. Everybody thought I was a devil worshipper. The weird guy who rapped backwards. Nobody does that shit. I’ve always been the weirdo dude. When somebody of that stature—I’m independent. I use my own money, me and Travis [O’Guin, co-founder of Strange Music], you know. These motherfuckers are filthy rich. He was in jail at the time, this nigga is sitting on a lot. He can work with anybody he want to and Funkmaster Flex asked him, “Who do you want to work with?” He said, “Andre 3000 and my man Tech N9ne.” Wow.
