4 Rappers That Should Be Superheroes!

It has been announced that long time Spider Man fan Childish Gambino, will be voicing the superhero in an animated Disney series. So we have put together a list of other rappers who should be superheros.

 

 
Three years after launching his nearly-successful #donald4spiderman bid, Childish Gambino has finally got his wish. Even though his longtime run with NBC’s ‘Community’ show has come to end, that isn’t stopping Childish Gambino, aka Donald Glover, from hitting the small screen this season. Gambino, who grew up a huge Spider-Man fan, will get to live out a childhood dream as the voice of Miles Morales on the new season of Disney XD’s animated series ‘Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors’.

Back In 2011, Donald took to twitter and publicly campaigned to play Spider-Man in the reboot movie, but as we all know it went to actor Andrew Garfield. Fittingly enough, the show’s writer, Brian Michael Bendis, was inspired by those Gambino actions and decided to introduce Morales’ character to the series after he saw the actor’s Twitter campaign and watched the entertainer dress up in Spider-Man pajamas on an episode of NBC’s show ‘Community’.

Gambino told USA Today,

“I never liked Superman that much, because I was like, ‘Yo, this dude can’t die. It’s too easy. Batman is pretty fly. He’s a close second, just because he doesn’t really have powers. He’s just a justice-driven vigilante. Spider-Man is the best because you just don’t know who he is, and he’s funny and he’s poor. I understand Spider-Man a lot on that level. He’s just trying to make it.”

Check out a clip of Gambino’s voice over below, and look for the new season of ‘The Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors’ to premiere this Sunday, at 9am ET on Disney XD.

Because of Gambino’s recent news that he will become the voice of the renowned Peter Parker, and most likely to become the first A class rapper to become an A class superhero, we have put together a list of the 4 rappers who should have been superheros. Grab you cape and your b*itches and check it out!

HULKBusta Rhymes is The Hulk

Common, he just is. One of the most recognisable superheros in history is the ridiculously sized, slime colored, sometimes angry but very misunderstood Dr Bruce Banner. That big green ball of fun is not someone you want to poke with a stick, as The Hulks anger gets more potent so does his abilities. Someone in the rap world who may be able to match The Hulks ‘incredible’ presence is Brooklyn’s very own Bus a bus! He does not just match his presence and physique however, within the urban world of music there are not many others who gather more and more unbelievable excitement the longer they perform. BUSTA SMASH!
