MOMENTS | Mash-up: Revel in Hip-Hop Variants, the Marvel Comics x Classic & Contemporary Hip Hop Covers Artwork

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

Earlier this year, Marvel Comics’ rolled out their interpretation of the Jewel Runners’ salute, and if that made you geek out with glee, you’ll be stoked to know that there are more comic hero and hip-hop album art mash-ups coming your way. In a new series, titled Hip-Hop Variants, Marvel will pay homage to some of hip-hop’s most iconic classic and contemporary album artwork. The first batch of the series features tributes to albums by Wu-Tang Clan, Notorious B.I.G., Ol’ Dirty Bastard, A Tribe Called Quest, A$AP Rocky, Tyler the Creator, Lauryn Hill, 50 Cent, De La Soul, Dr. Dre, and Eric B. & Rakim. We’re pretty excited to see what else they have in store.

MOMENTS | Mash-up: Sundance Darling ‘Dope’ Has an Experimental Trailer That Merges 8-Bit Animation with Film Footage

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

Rick Famuyiwa‘s Dope was the big hit at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and the film just released its experimental trailer. The trailer is a seamless mash-up of psychedelic animation, social media, 8-bit video games and actual footage from the film. The mash-up nature of the trailer is a pretty accurate tonal representation of the film’s retro, ’90s hip-hop loving, and modern social media obsessed protagonist Malcolm (Shameik Moore). As Famuyiwa states, “We wanted it to look like something that would be created by Malcolm and his friends.” Dope is a coming-of-age-story set in Los Angeles’ Inglewood, though like most well made movies, there’s a little more to it than that.
