Spider-Man meets hip-hop.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is being hailed as one of the best animated films of the year. As the accolades roll in for Sony and Marvel's latest cash cow, the hip-hop community is stunned with how well put together the soundtrack for the movie is. Running for 13 tracks, the Into The Spider-Verse OST features appearances from Nicki Minaj, Jaden Smith, Lil Wayne, Post Malone, Swae Lee, Juice WRLD, Ski Mask The Slump God, Ty Dolla Sign, XXXTENTACION, and more. Marvel has already found success this year with one hip-hop album, the Black Panther OST, and now they're doubling up on their rap offering.

The production on the Into The Spider-Verse OST stands out for being well curated and cinematic. Each song sounds like it belongs directly in the movie, although I haven't even watched the film yet. Amidst the 13 tracks and plethora of talented artists are five features that stand out amongst the rest. Some of those features exist on the same track, while others push the featured artist out on a platform of their own. The late XXXTentacion's inclusion was a welcomed surprise, but he wasn't the only scene-stealer on the soundtrack. After carefully digesting the new album, these are our five best features on the Into The Spider-Verse OST.
