After Run the Jewels cranked up the soundtrack on the debut trailer for Marvel’s Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet reboot last month, Prodigy‘s Mobb Deep has stepped into the role for issue No. 2. The latest monthly teaser series for the rebooted superhero title penned by award-winning author Ta-Nehisi Coates and illustrated by Brian Stelfreeze gets a booming kick from “Beast With It,” featuring Prodigy and Mark the Beast.
Run The Jewels Help Kick Off ‘Black Panther’ Video Series for Marvel
Coates once again narrates a two-minute overview of the issue, due out on Wednesday (June 29), in which the nation of Wakanda suffers through cataclysmic violence while King T’Challa is forced to deal with mind-numbing bureaucracy. As our hero enlists his stepmother, Ramonda, to help him run the nation, the EDM-like track blares in the background, with Prodigy intoning, “they like to turn me to a monster.”
Marvel has promised a new video trailer each month, with soundtracks from “some of the biggest names in the music industry.”
