Earlier this month, Marvel released a number of mash-up’s between their flagship comic book characters, and classic Hip-Hop albums. From Eric B. & Rakim to Wu-Tang Clan, Marvel wove in Spiderman, X-Men, and Squadron Supreme into iconic artwork.

Ten days later, Marvel Comic Group’s Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso released four more. However, the mostly mid-1990s Marvel-mashed artwork is animated. The four albums all come from artists not represented in the first patch, though Spiderman reappeared. The LPs come courtesy of Nas’ Illmatic, Pete Rock & CL Smooth’s Mecca and The Soul Brother, 50 Cent’s Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, and The Roots’ Illadelph Halflife. 

Here is the quartet of additions:

Spiderman x Nas’ Illmatic


The Avengers x The Roots’ Illadelph Halflife


Hawkeye x Pete Rock & CL Smooth’s Mecca And The Soul Brother


Iron Man x 50 Cent’s Get Rich Or Die Tryin’
