Marvel Comics has returned again  with a new batch of their popular hip-hop variant covers. This set follows last year’s run that included reimaginations of 27 classic hip-hop album covers from the likes of De La Soul, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent and others. This year’s series focuses more on a generational contrast with acts like Rae Sremmurd, Tupac Shakur, RZA, Method Man and even Frank Ocean who also gets channeled for his Blonde project. Check out all of this year’s Marvel hip-hop covers below.
