With classic LPs from 50 Cent, GZA and LL Cool J up first.
Marvel is collaborating with hip-hop label Urban Legends on a new ongoing vinyl series featuring collectors editions of iconic albums reimagined with comic book characters on the cover.
The idea for the series began in 2015, when Marvel debuted a limited series of album art-inspired comic book covers.
The first three albums, released this December, will be Iron Man standing behind cracked glass on the cover of 50 Cent’s 2003 debut Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, the Punisher posing as LL Cool J on the 1990 LP Mama Said Knock You Out, and Iron Man fighting Maestro on GZA’s Liquid Swords.
Each LP will be available in two variants: a Collectors Edition with the album on 2xLP coloured vinyl housed in the album’s new cover art; a Deluxe Collector’s Edition on 2xLP coloured vinyl housed in the album’s new cover art, with a copy of the limited edition corresponding Marvel comic book and a 3D lenticular of Marvel’s variant cover artwork.
Pre-order the albums here ahead of their 7th December release and listen to ‘Liquid Swords’ below.
