Bun B & Shea Serrano’s Hip Hop Coloring Book To Hit Stores

(AllHipHop News) Houston Hip-Hop legend Bun B is expanding his résumé that already reads the creator of southern rap classics and lecturer at Rice University to include a new title – coloring book curator.

“Bun B’s Rap Jumbo Coloring And Rap Activity Book” is a collaboration with music writer and illustrator Shea Serrano. What started out as a popular Tumblr page has now blossomed into a 42-page book that will include pictures of 45 Hip-Hop celebrities like Drake, T.I., and Rick Ross. It will have connect-the-dots games and lyric ad-libs as well.

Bun’s role in the project is to contribute as the curator while Serrano will create all the illustrations.

“He just lends some credibility (to the book),” Serrano told The Daily Californian. “I’m not black, and I didn’t want people to think, ‘Oh, he’s just making fun of black people’.”

The LA Weekly blogger also makes it clear that even though the book version of “Bun B’s Rap Jumbo” will leave out some of the more adult-themed ideas found on the website, the activity book is still not geared toward children.

“It’s for adults,” contends Serrano. “Kids shouldn’t listen to rap music and definitely shouldn’t listen to the rappers that we (include)… If it lands in a kid’s lap, then cool; he’s going to like it… but we’re kind of making this for rap fans.”

With Bun B being one of the most well-respected Hip-Hop artists amongst his peers in the industry, the UGK member made the perfect choice to join Serrano in creating a book that showed the lighter side of Hip-Hop culture without offending the rappers portrayed in it.

“[Bun] wanted to do a project to show people that rappers, in private, were a funny group of people,” said Serrano. “Everybody loves him, so it sort of worked out.”

      I didn’t read it – don’t have to – I grew up with coloring books – helped my art – but putting jail baiting lycric-ist in kid’s coloring books makes the publishers money – by feeding our kids “heoros” that get shot at and go to jail – “they’ killed our leaders – now they got us – we gotta re-unite and regroup for the positive.

      • Eli Pinilla

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        Eli – once again, I admit I didn’t read this article – and don’t have to – re-read what I said – I don’t see where – what you said made a difference to what I said.

      • RMfag

        Which part of it isnt stupid is a mystery.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        RMfag – you thinking we should listen to a man that sucks another man’s dick is so stupid – you should be blasted.

      • RMfag

        Blasted, Creamed, Smashed.
        Call it whatever you want. But my hole belongs to Mac Miller only.

      • RMfag

        That being said, only idiots think a gay man has no wisdom.
        Arent you dudes tired of being slow yet?

      • LOL

    *Cracks knuckles* Im having fun with this thread…..

  • RMfag

    Its probably the only book they read.

  • RMfag

    They had an easier time walking along the line than coloring in them.

  • RMfag

    Tupac Tic Tac Toe, smh.

  • RMfag

    Surprised Nicki’s page is so normal. Knowing her, a Spongebob x Telebubbies crossover couldnt be even half as fruity as her.

  • RMfag

    I think the world is doing better without an Outkast album than with one, amirite or amirite?

  • RMfag

    Rap Libs was better than anything on eyepatches whole discography.
    Come at me if you disagree.

  • RMfag

    Liking the Tupac shade as well. Big gets a crown while Pac gets 4 lines, 3 which were used during the brainstorm of this comicbook idea.
    I hope Pac gets up in that after he gets off vacation.

  • RMfag

    Draw in a ratchet friend….smh
    Anything for promotion……

  • RMfag

    Differences between the chronic…..detox didnt drop?

  • RMfag

    Thats how Drake looks on a day-to-day basis, with his dry arched eyebrow Mr.Bentley looking asz.

  • RMfag

    They didnt do a gay rapper page, a crossword puzzle in the shape of a dude getting his back blown out sitting ontop another one.

  • RMfag

    They didnt do a wack rapper page either.
    Then again that would be an encyclopedia series than a comic book…….and Im through.

    • RMfag

      Read my comments, starting from the bottom.

  • CHUCK BAN THIS BASTARD USER “RMFAG”!!!!! HE IS NOTHING BUT A BORED TROLL! ILLSEED IF YOU ARE ABOUT WHAT YOU SAY YOU ARE BAN THIS ASSH*LE.

    • RMfag

      He did or does.
      You just mad that I came up with better insults that you.
      You know what Im doing? Creating culture you Neanderthal.

      I do agree that I should tone down the extraness, so I will try to comment on gay or Mac Miller articles from now on. I gots to support my husband.

    • He is kinda funny though <>

    This book idea was mad corny.

  • DayDay5243

    What would be the appropriate crayon to use for Drake?

    • Hello

      A light peach for his skin depending on what type of crayons you have. Some crayons have a massive bouquet of colors. So if you were to get one of those packs that contain a lot of exotic colors, I’d suggest marigold. ………try it.
