DJ Jazzy Jeff and Rhymefest Release “No Fear” for Marvel’s Black Panther
Marvel's Black Panther series just gets doper and doper. The comic book company's new promotional video for its "A Nation Under Our Feet" storyline features a song by DJ Jazzy Jeff and Rhymefest called "No Fear."
You can view the clip above via YouTube. The video serves as part six in Marvel's Black Panther series, which follows the protagonist/super hero, T'Challa.
DJ Jazzy Jeff and Rhymefest come together to form the duo Jeff N Fess. Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Alex Alonso explains the reasoning behind getting Jazz and Rhymefest on board. “A good soundtrack is all about variety," Alonso says. "Next up: JEFF N FESS – A.K.A. Dj Jazzy Jeff and Rhymefest – with a track that’s tailor made for T’Challa – ‘No Fear.'”
There's been a ton of crossover between Marvel Comics and the hip-hop world recently. Marvel has been dropping dope variant covers, blending classic hip-hop albums with classic superheroes. Additionally, the new Marvel show Luke Cage features a bunch of rap, including music from Wu-Tang. Back in July, Prodigy even got on an EDM beat and spit bars for part two of the Black Panther series.
The YouTube description states, "Within Marvel Comics’ Black Panther, written by The Atlantic national correspondent and National Book Award winner, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Black Panther confronts a dramatic upheaval in Wakanda that will make leading the African nation tougher than ever before! With no one left to trust, T'Challa leans the only people he can trust: Luke Cage, Misty Knight, and Storm. But Wakanda may be too far gone for this all-new, all different CREW."
