This last year has transitioned hip-hop and Marvel Comics’ fling into a full-blown marriage. From the crossovers of rap album and comic book covers to Marvel shows and movies containing hip-hop in a bunch trailers (Luke Cage and Deadpool, just to name a few), the two entities have taken each others’ hands for the near future.

The recent Black Panther reboot has added another layer to the relationship, as Prodigy and Jean Grae have gotten intertwined with the new string of comics written by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Last week, Issue #4 dropped to the masses, and Marvel returns with a video recap narrated by Coates and soundtracked by Kweku Collins‘ “Kings,” which landed on his Say It Here, While It’s Safe EP from 2015.

The editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, Axel Alonso, told Pitchfork, who premiered the recap, “Kweku Collins’ ‘Kings’ was a seamless fit for a soundtrack that cuts a swath through all the shades of Hip-Hop. The atmospheric backbeat perfectly reflects the moment: For T’Challa, it’s gut-check time.”
