MARVEL HIP-HOP COVERS COMING TO VINYL!

Marvel Entertainment is partnering with Universal Music Group to show off its hip-hop credentials that will see artwork created for the company’s Hip-Hop Variant cover program and put those out on new vinyl LP reissues! Back in 2015, Marvel Comics introduced the first volume of its hip-hop variants cover program. This year, the brand has expanded its reach in the world of hip-hop by collaborating with Urban Legends to bring some of the inspirational covers to life in the form of vinyl. The first three releases will be 50 Cent’s 2003 debut Get Rich or Die Tryin’, LL Cool J’s 1990 album Mama Said Knock You Out and GZA’s second solo album, 1995’s Liquid Swords. (Artwork for the three come from, respectively, Brian Stelfreeze’s Invincible Iron Man No. 1 cover, Tim Bradstreet’s Punisher No. 1 and Denys Cowan’s Contest of Champions No. 1.) Each deluxe edition will be limited to 3,000 copies! Imagine 50 Cent becomes Iron Man! In a statement accompanying the launch of the program, UMe president/CEO Bruce Resnikoff said, "Marvel comics have always occupied a special place in the hearts of hip-hop fans — both media continue to serve as source of expression, escapism and inspiration for generations of super fans around the world." “Hip-hop and Marvel Comics are two vital threads of pop culture that have engaged in dialogue for at least a couple decades,” Alonso said in a contemporaneous interview. “A lot of people know that the Wu-Tang Clan reference Marvel characters in their rhymes, but few people know how many Marvel artists are deeply influenced by hip-hop music and its culture. These covers are an attempt to show that.” We teamed up with @Marvel to release some of your favorite hip-hop variant covers on vinyl.Pre-order them now: https://t.co/Qj2VRZeycB pic.twitter.com/LaEFYDr2Iy— Urban Legends (@urbanxlegends) October 22, 2018

LIL WAYNE ACCEPTS 'I AM HIP HOP' AWARD!

Weezy was presented the I Am Hip Hop Award at 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards for his contribution to the game throughout his career starting way back with the Hot Boys. Before taking the stage, a video of folks like Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz and more speaking on Lil Wayne played on the big screen. All of them praised the Young Money rapper for his creativity and work ethic, qualities that made him a legend in the game. Then after introductory speech from Bun B & DJ Khaled, Weezy took the stage with his mother Jacida Carter and his daughter Reginae Carter behind him. "I must give this award to the people who refused. What I mean by that [is] the people who refused to stop supporting me during all the...you already know. The people who refused to see me as haven't put an album out in six years, four years. You guys respected me, you guys supported me. You came to every show. You respected every album, every feature. My family. My family refused, refused to stop motivating me. To stop treating me as if I am not the man. As if I am not the father who I am. As if I am not the person who I am. They refused to let me feel anything less. Please give it up to my family." He also gave thanks to the man name Uncle Bob, a New Orleans legend that ultimately saved his life after his wild near-death experience years ago. "When I say, 'refuse,' there's a man in New Orleans, his name is Uncle Bob," Weezy begins in the early stages of a memorable anecdote. "He came into an apartment one day. He bust in the door, guns drawn—he saw nobody. He saw legs on the floor. It was my legs. He saw blood everywhere. Bunch of police hopped over me. He refused to do so. I never knew, I talked to him the other day, I never knew EMS was on the scene. He said EMS tried twice and they told him, 'There's nothing.' He refused to let that die." Weezy continues, "He told his somebody, 'Come drive this car. Forget a ambulance.' He brought me to the hospital himself. He refused to wait, he kicked in the doors. He said, 'You get whatever you gotta do and you make sure this child make it.' Not only that, that day, Uncle Bob was a homicide detective. He was off on detail. He just heard the call and came. Not only did he refuse to sit, not only [didn't] he give me to the doctors and leave, he refused to leave, he stayed and made sure that I made it." Watch the entirety of Weezy's heartfelt acceptance speech below. .@LilTunechi emotional anecdote about his near-death experience puts his love and legacy into perspective. #HipHopAwardshttps://t.co/T9UzXkTc8M— BET (@BET) October 17, 2018
