SKAM2? Made A Tribe Called Quest’s Beats, Rhymes & Life Artwork. He Remixes It For Deadpool
Back in 1996, Miami, Florida native MC/illustrator SKAM2? made one of Hip-Hop’s most iconic covers: A Tribe Called Quest’s Beats, Rhymes & Life. A chance meeting with Q-Tip prompted SKAM to lace the artwork for the would-be platinum-certified album on Jive Records. At the time, as an MC living in New York City, SKAM was running (and recording) with Eminem, The Jigmastas, and the late I.G. Off.
In honor of the upcoming Marvel film, Deadpool, SKAM2? (an avid comic-book Head) took his artwork and remixed it—with the title character taking on the female “Bonita” character. For lovers of Hip-Hop and comics, this is just cool. SKAM2? did stress that this is by no means in conjunction with the comic maker, or the recent series of Hip-Hop album tributes. Authorized or not, this certainly is official.
Earlier this week, SKAM also released The SKRONIK: Flying Monkey Murder Cirkus. His latest project, with DJ Immortal, features M1, Ill Bill, and production by Kevin Rudolf. The follow-up to 2012’s SKRONIK: How To Boil Vomit is below:
