Marvel’s Black Panther Meets Run The Jewels

blame it on Meka May 11, 2016

This weekend I will finally watch Captain America: Civil War (for those that missed it, peep Andreas Hale’s review on the film), and — for obvious reasons — I’ll be the loudest one cheering when I finally witness the big-screen adaptation of Black Panther. As such, the character’s own comic book has also seen a relaunching, fronted by MacArthur Genius and National Book Award-winning writer Ta-Nehisi Coates and artist Brian Stelfreeze.

To celebrate, a trailer for the book has been released. However, the higher-ups at Marvel — who have already flexed their hip hop chops many times over, from Ali Shaheed-Muhammad and Adrian Younge scoring Luke Cage on Netflix to their many variant covers for the likes of Spider-Man and Deadpool — have continued to buck the “normal” trend and have blended it with some music courtesy of Run The Jewels. With “Oh My Darling” providing the tunes, watch it below.

UPDATE: Well damn, Rahzzah just dusted Shake’s alternative cover (above) with the second print of Black Panther #2.
