Marvel continues to go all-in with the Black Panther marketing today debuting the second in a series of videos featuring the comic, commentary by writer and the latest hip hop sounds.
Today’s video, “Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet – Part Two” includes a brand new track, “Beast With It” by Prodigy of Mobb Deep, featuring Mark the Beast.
Here’s the video:
And the song:
The first video in the series was released last month and featured Run the Jewels.
This is a pretty clever move to cross promote Bllack Panther to hip hop fans, and each video even includes includes a a recap of the comic book.
Continuing the excitement surrounding Marvel’s celebrated Super Hero T’Challa, the Black Panther, the latest episode of this revolutionary multi-artist hip-hop-inspired video series samples a brand new track, “Beast With It”, by Prodigy of Mobb Deep, featuring Mark the Beast.
“I am honored to be a part of another cool project from Marvel Comics and this new video series is going to be a smash,” states Prodigy of Mobb Deep. “Black Panther has always been one of my favorite Marvel characters and the new series is destined to become a huge hit — Ta-Nehisi Coates really did his thing with this one!”
“Comics and music are two art forms that continually speak to one another, and with Ta-Nehisi and Brian Stelfreeze’s epic series flying off the shelves, we are doing just that,” says Axel Alonso, Marvel Editor In Chief. “It’s our honor to partner with the legendary Prodigy for this latest installment.”
All good but I wonder if the commentary includes Coates telling Marvel not to kill Rhodey and them just not listening?
