Rae Sremmurd's Slim Jimmy and Swae Lee grace the cover of a reboot of the "Captain America" comic series.

It's no secret that there's a long-standing relationship between hip-hop and comic books. What with Ghostface Killah calling himself Tony Stark, MF DOOM styling his persona after the villain Dr. Doom, Eminem and Busta Rhyme's comic-inspired "Calm Down" artwork, and many, many more instances, the two forms of media have a long, fruitful history of influencing each other. The latest crossover between the two worlds comes on the cover of a new Captain America comic book, on which the two members of Rae Sremmurd can be seen.

Following in the footsteps of Em and Onyx as rappers who've shown up on the cover of comics, Slim Jimmy and Swae Lee herald the arrival of the first black Captain America in history. You can buy their issue for $170 here.
