You wanted more of Marvel's hip-hop variance covers, and the comic book company is more than happy to oblige. Keeping up with their regularly scheduled drop of colorful rap homage artwork, just two weeks after unveiling a different set of their highly sought after hip-hop variant covers, the comic book company has unveiled a brand new batch.
Marvel has spent the last year paying homage to some of the biggest names in rap with a variety of covers designed to mimic in some way both classic albums and newer releases. For this latest run, the comic book company has busted out another set of five covers that recreated Future & Zaytoven's Beast Mode, Masta Ace's Sittin' On Chrome, Consequence's Don't Quit Your Day Job, CZARFACE's Every Hero Needs A Villain, and Blackalicious' Blazing Arrow.
Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso revealed each new cover along with the artist's name on Twitter.

Earlier this month, Marvel unveiled a different set of five covers recreating projects like Nas' 2012 album Life is Good, Dr. Dre's 2015 release Compton, and the 2013 Prodigy and Alchemist collaboration Albert Einstein. That's to go along with two classics, EPMD's Back in Business and Missy Elliott's Under Construction.
What is your favorite cover from the new series, and which album would you like to see get the Marvel treatment next?
