50 Cent Get Rich or Die Tryin: Marvel Reissue Vinyl 2LP
Standard Marvel Edition 2LP With Hip-Hop Variant Cover Originally Drawn & Colored By Brian Stelfreeze For Invincible Iron Man #1 In 2015
Urban Legends and Marvel Comics are collaborating to bring together the mighty, epic worlds of comics and hip-hop with an ongoing exclusive album series that will feature variant covers for select collector's editions of some of the record label's most legendary hip-hop releases. The first releases in this joint series, out December 2018, are Iron Man standing behind cracked glass for 50 Cent's incendiary 2003 debut, Get Rich Or Die Tryin'; the Punisher replicating LL Cool J's famous stance on the cover of his 1990 album Mama Said Knock You Out; and Iron Man dueling Maestro, mirroring the cover of GZA's second studio album, Liquid Swords. Marvel Comics originally debuted these album art-inspired images as comic book variants for many of their top comic titles in 2015, reinterpreted by a number of fan-favorite comic book artists.
Each album release will boast a pair of collectible options, the first one being a double color vinyl Variant Cover Collector's Edition that replaces the album's original image with Marvel's variant hip-hop cover art. Second, a Deluxe Variant Cover Collector's Edition will sport the featured album itself housed in a gatefold LP with the variant cover printed directly on the front. The deluxe collector's edition will include double color vinyl, along with a copy of the limited-edition corresponding Marvel comic book that ties in with the artwork. The deluxe version will also include a 3D lenticular print of Marvel's variant cover artwork. Each initial Collector's Edition will be capped at 3,000 units.
Released in 2003 by Shady/Aftermath/Interscope, 50 Cent's debut, Get Rich Or Die Tryin', was the year's bestselling album worldwide. It stormed to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with more than 872,000 copies sold during its first week of release. Featuring the acclaimed No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 singles "In da Club" and "21 Questions," and the Top 5 "P.I.M.P.," the album is six-times platinum-certified by the RIAA. The exclusive hip-hop variant cover inspired by this album was originally drawn and colored by Brian Stelfreeze for Invincible Iron Man #1 in 2015.
