The 2017 NBA Playoffs begin this weekend (April 15th), which means that there’s at least one more month of arguably the best NBA show out, Inside The NBA, aka NBA On TNT. The show decided to remake some hip hop covers just like Marvel did, but this way with NBA basketball stars instead of comics.
The Notorious Big‘s Ready to Die, Drake‘s Nothing Was The Same, Nas‘ Illmatic, the Migos‘ CULTURE, JAY Z and Kanye West‘s Watch The Throne and 2Pac‘s Me Against The World are remade with the Boston Celtics, Milwaukee Bucks, Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs, Cleveland Cavaliers and Oklahoma City Thunder, really nice I may add.
Check them out below.
The TNT crew has dropped some new ones to add to the remake covers. Check out the new ones below.
After remixing Pusha T, Logic, and more earlier this month, Marvel has come back to drop some more gems. This time the comic giant remixes Dr. Dre, Nas, Prodigy & Alchemist, EPMD, and Missy Elliot. You can check them out below.
As a bonus here is a video of the process from one of the artist Sam Spratt.
They keep doing this awesome remix of covers, and I feel it is so amazing for hip hop. This time the remix Desiigner’s “Panda” and Doctor Strange. Also King Mez’s “Long Live The King” and Black Panther.
The first hip hop remakes from Marvel has arrived!!!! Closing 2015 with UGK vs. Deadpool, Marvel has returned with Kool Moe Dee, Outkast, and ScHoolboy Q. Check them out below and let us know what you think.
It has been some time since Marvel has graced the world with some new Hip Hop cover art. Well the wait is over, they have decided to remix UGK. Usually we get between 4 and 5 covers, but I’m happy with two classics they decided to remix. What do you guys think of the cover art? Check them out below and let us know what you think.
Brand new video for Run The Jewels’ song “Rubble Kings Theme.”
This is some very cool animation and an amazing track. It follows a young woman named “Little Nina” as she walks the streets of New York and gets brutally attacked by a rival street gang. She goes to her own gang for protection and the result is animated warfare inspired by the pulp fun of movies like “The Warriors.”
Kinda heavy stuff in here. But like the song, the visuals go hard and without mercy. Nothing too crazy, so I hope y’all check it out and enjoy.

Marvel Remixes Drake, Future, Missy Elliott & Curren$y Album Covers. MTV set down with Marvel’s Editor In Chief to talk about the union between Hip Hop and comics.
Well, the process changed. When we started this, we started knowing that there were going to be certain albums that you absolutely positively f–king had to do a variant to. And those covers were so iconic, and in many cases coincided with such an incredible record, that we knew we had to start there.
Those covers got priority, Nas’ Illmatic was one of those, Dr Dre’s The Chronic was another, NWA’s Straight Outta Compton was yet another. I could keep going, but we knew those were covers we were going to have to do an homage to. I was talking with a few artists, who I know to be hip-hop heads because we correspond all the time, Stanford Green, Damien Scott, and so on, about these.
So since they were involved in running discussions, they got dibs on some of the first ones right out of the gate. Sanford did 3 Feet High And Rising, the “X-Men” cover, so we started there. As we progressed, once we locked down, we just had to be centralized, we imposed on ourselves one rule… And that rule was that every recording artist would be limited to one cover.
We could have done all of the Tribe Called Quest covers, you follow me? [But] we wanted to make sure that we spanned 30 years of hip-hop, and we wanted to span all of the various genres within it. We wanted old school, new school, west coast, east coast… We wanted gangsta, we wanted trap lord. We really wanted to show hip-hop in all its glory. As we moved along, we just checked an artist and an album off the list, and that was that.
“We’re modern mythology that’s stayed relevant for decades because we reflect the world around us,” Marvel’s Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso tellsREVOLT. “These Hip-Hop covers is Marvel shouting back to decades of Hip-Hop artists. We want the dialog to increase.”
“From West Coast ‘G Thang’ to East Coast Wu — this week, we pay tribute to a wide range of musical styles and four of the most iconic album covers ever,” says Marvel Comics Editor-In-Chief, Axel Alonso. EW‘s exclusive reveal of the four new covers below. All series will be on sale later this year.”
Marvel has yet done it again. They are getting really good at this. I’m loving what they are doing with the album covers. I wondering which ones they will do next. Check out the new album covers below.
X-Men’s comic book cover pays respect to De La Soul’s 3 FeetHigh and Rising, while Howard The Duck’s cover pays homage to Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version. Also The Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready To Die was the inspiration for the Ant-Man cover. Check them out below
