marvel hip hop album variant covers. the action pixel. @theactionpixelMarvel has featured a few hip hop acts in its comics over the years, from Run The Jewels variant covers, or that one Spider-Man variant with Birdman, or the time Eminem and the Punisher went on a shooting spree.

So, unsurprisingly, Marvel’s homage to the hip hop universe is about to culminate in an ambitious project hitting us in October. A new series of variant covers will have Marvel characters paying tribute to the greatest hip hop albums of all time. Old school and new. Honestly some don’t deserve to be up there, but hey, to each his own, huh?

There’s supposed to be a whopping 50+ variants, but here is a few Marvel have released so far alongside the hip-hop albums they are modelled off of:
