Can Hip-Hop And Comic Book Movies Collaborate?

Hip-Hop is more than just a genre of music it is an artform, made by bright people who have incorporated it into music well. How though, can Hip-Hop collaborate with the long running comic book franchise. Including artwork of comic and Hip-Hop amalgamation.

As a huge fan of Hip-Hop I have to state it's absence in comic book films. Not only just music but Hip-Hop artists/turned actors. Will Smith, Common, Mos Def, Mark Wahlberg, Andre Benjamin all great actors and fine artists who are perfect examples of bringing great performances. Mos Def in my opinion would make a very exceptional Black Panther or Falcon, he definitely fits the right tone for the two characters especially T'Challa. Doubt in Mos Def's acting ability is foolish, from The Italian Job, 16 Blocks, and even The Boondocks Yasin has showed his talents in both fields. Common would make a great Green Lantern, when all the buzz of his possibility in the role was debunked I felt robbed and John Stewarts role was not even memorable, Common is still the rightful choice. Then of course there is rapper TI's recent statements of involvement with Marvel which would be fine if a character fit him, hopefully the role he gets if any is for Falcon.



Music is a different story, because the soundtrack for a comic book film generally composes of rock songs which add great for fights or other scenes. Such as like Shoot To Thrill for Iron Man or Flash by Queen, probably not the best example. Though Hip-Hop has had minor connections to comic book films Fantastic Four, Iron Man 2, the 90's Batman Saga can original Hip-Hop have a place in comic book films. Such music like Run DMC, Native Tongues, Zulu Nation cannot as it has a to positive message I suppose. Contrary to that belief I have a perfect Hip-Hop song for a Luke Cage film.



Comics and Hip-Hop do have much in common as stated in this strip so a collaboration would be a good fit so readers, any thoughts, questions, opinions, rants, statements, pictures, trolls




Here's a test for any Hip-Hop heads on the site, name the album/artist of the original amalgams below and post the original, just for kicks.

Aside from the older rappers who have been around for a while (Like A Tribe Called Quest!), hip hop is pretty much garbage compared to what it was about 16 or 17 years ago. im not saying that they shouldnt use more hip hop in CBM's, because there are definately plenty of good songs out there. Im just saying hip hop nowadays is pretty much meaningless shit with no real message.

Before uou get defensive, let me say that I know there is good stuff out there, but the popular stuff is just awful.

Those pics are HILARIOUS! My pick for a song for Luke Cage would be either

Power-Kanye West



Won't Back Down-Eminem



or
Who Gon Stop Me!Jay Z and Kanye West



I believe that in a Luke cage or falcon movie they would do it but in Black Panther it would be hard. I still think it should make more appearances in movies. Alot of Kanye Stuff is dubstep/hip hop beats like Who Gon Stop Me above^ alot of those songs would be awesome for a bad ass fight scene.

I love the wu tang,old dirty, dr dre and nwa renditions, even both hammer covers:) you can use old school hip hop in movies all u want, new hip hop has a totally diff feel. It's not fun anymore. The only reason I think they don't use it is because it doesn't exactly fit the mood of these story's.

There are a couple good rappers still out there. I like Kanye West, J.Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Lupe Fiasco, and The Game.

Most of the people who hate on Hip-Hop and Rap being in CBM's or just action films in general are mostly caucasian (white). And I said most, not all.

You got good taste.

I love this article because Ive loved both comics and hip hop since I can remember. I am graduating from Full Sail University in a year or so with a bachelors in music production. A lot of you are right about the quality of pop hip hop right now. It does suck but that is the case with everything comics included. Who wouldn't wanna go back to the 90s X-Men or Batman. As with everything their is always some good out there too like The night of the Owls storyline.

My point is Great Article and I'm love that everyone is enjoying it.

DO I IRON FIST, JARULE ALBUM.
ThunderKat - 7/16/2012, 9:44 PM
I still think of rap and hip hop separately. It was homogenized so that more people would buy into people who can't sing and "sample" music.
Now, hip hop is something else. It is a bonafide music genre.

Are you trying to inject it into superhero movies because of the additional or renewed success of heavy metal in the Iron Man movies.

Tyler the Creator needs to have songs on a Deadpool movie soundtrack
