If Marvel Comic Heroes Were Rappers (Vol. 1).

Marvel Comics, has been knocking pretty much anything they do out of the park over recent years, be it movies, comic re-telling, and now marketing.  It would be a bit difficult to conceive of Marvel heroes crossing into the rap game, but Axel Alonso, editor in chief of Marvel, and his team of artists conceived of variant covers in order to generate buzz for over fifty No.1 issues that Marvel started releasing last month.  These cover take popular and iconic hip hop covers, and give them a Marvel twist.  Check the method, and NOTE: The collection is so vast, we had to split this up into two posts.

Creed vs. Southpaw.


michael-b-jordan-creed-trailer-social

Seemingly in the tradition of Captain America taking on Ironman in Civil War, and Batman vs. Superman on the big screen, it seems as if another rivalry may be on the horizon in the hollywood box-office. Creed (above) features Michael B. Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed (from the Rocky Balboa movies.) who is being trained by Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky.  When I heard the premise for the movie, it seemed quite a bit silly, or like Sly Stallone just needed another check.  But after watching the first trailer, my opinion was instantly turned around.  The dark and gritty semi-sequel is focused on the struggles of the young Creed, and honestly seems to be just a genuine attempt at a GOOD boxing movie, as apposed as a way to bring Rocky back to the big screen.  And IN THE BLUE CORNER!!! (sorry, I couldn’t help buy type that). Southpaw was originally intended to star rap icon Eminem, but he backed out in order to focus on the soundtrack.  When Jake Gyllenhaal (who’s name I still cannot spell without the help of Google) took his place after the movie Nightcrawler, people were a bit taken aback.  If you haven’t seen Nightcrawler, Gyllenhaal’s character is a spindly, creepily skinny late night journalist.  But when the first shots of him in Southpaw emerged, he was massive.  I don’t even think Eminem would want to fight Gyllenhaal in that shape.  The film itself features an interesting original story, directed by Antoine Fuqua.  Sound off below as to which boxing flick YOU think will bring home the best for best boxing movie of the year.

A Look Back At The History Of One Of Hip Hop Hottest Songs.


003FCB_Eminem_037It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was in high school, and Eminem was all the rage.  His music was everywhere, he had a movie coming out, and every song he dropped seemed to be fire.  I remember hearing ‘Wangsta’ blaring from car speakers after school, and not realizing that 50 Cent (the same guy who made ‘How To Rob’, one of my favorite tracks ever) was in cahoots with Em.  However it does seem like a while ago since the last time I’ve heard one of their first collaborations, ‘Patiently Waiting’, until I start singing it, and I remember every single word.  There was just something about that changed many peoples minds about this dynamic duo, and Complex Magazine thinks so as well.  Below is a short “documentary” (Magnum Opus style) about the origins of this amazing song, and why the timing was so perfect.  Check the method.

Most Rappers Are Lying About Their Money


businessweek-most-rappers-are-lying-about-their-money-1

From expensive clothes to gaudy chains and customized rides, wealth has always been a major talking point in the hip-hop community – especially in rap lyrics. As Jay-Z chides on Magna Carta… Holy Grail‘s “Versus” track, “The truth in my verses versus your metaphors about what your net worth is.” Thus, Businessweek recently launched an inside look into hip-hop’s dubious tales of extraordinary wealth. The results confirm Hov’s skepticism of rap’s tried-and-true rags-to-riches narrative – one in which Jay has taken part in the truest sense while others’ claims to a cache of prosperity are, in truth, mostly unrealized.Here, Businessweek hilariously ousts some of the industry’s worst offenders – and most “humble” lyricists – with a telling “Actual Wealth vs. Alleged Wealth” comparison.
