Marvel Covers Classic Hip Hop Albums

Universal Music Enterprises and Marvel Comics have joined forces to produce a new album collection that will feature variant covers for collectors’ editions of the label’s classic hip-hop titles.

The first releases will be 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Trying with Iron Man standing behind cracked glass; LL Cool J’s Mama Said Knock You Out with The Punisher replicating the artist’s stance on the original album cover and; Iron Man fighting Maestro on the cover of Liquid Swords by GZA.

Each release will include a pair of collectible options–a double color vinyl variant color collectors’ edition and a deluxe variant cover collectors’ edition that will offer a gatefold LP printed on the front and a copy of the limited-edition Marvel Comic book that ties into the artwork.

The deluxe version will also include a 3-D lenticular print of Marvel's variant cover artwork. A new title will be released each quarter and will be available at
