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!
