Hip Hop veteran Bun B (known from UGK) and illustrator, teacher and music journalist Shea Serrano teamed up and created the kickass “Bun B’s Rap Coloring and Activity Book” combining my childish likes with the grimaces of some Hip Hop pioneers and rap superstars.
After deciding on the creation of a Hip Hop orientated book and a phase of trial and error, one day Shea got slightly bored coloring with his sons and originated this concept. What started out as some ‘printable rap-related coloring and activity images’, distributed through their Tumblr account, soon went viral. After sharing tons of them through the net, gaining daily recognition, and obtaining countless fun along the way, they assembled a 48-page book with non previously released materials which is available as of today, September 17th! Featured artists include Queen Latifah, Drake, Talib Kweli, Common, Questlove and so onnnnn .. peep the examples taken from the Tumblr below ..
I think the Washington Post hits the nail on the head describing the book as “what every hip-hop head wishes they had as a child”. I couldn’t agree more and by the lack of such back in my childhood days, I’m still going to cop this, get them crayons and candies out and enjoy the fuck out of it! Playtime!
