Color your own rapper with print-outs from this Tumblr, soon to be a real book.
Rapper Bun B and music critic Shea Serrano are aiming to bring a little bit of fun back to the rap world, by creating a Jumbo Coloring and Rap Activity Tumblr. The blog is a collection of rap coloring and activity pages you can print out and color.
Apart from giving rappers and fans alike a chance to indulge their creative side, the Tumblr was started as a way to market the idea for a fully fledged book. With the help of Bun’s 700,000 Twitter followers and 400,000 Facebook likes, the Tumblr went viral very quickly.
Serrano illustrated the book and says that he wanted Bun B involved as way to add credibility and ensure people didn’t think he was simply poking fun at rappers.
For those who like the idea, you might be relieved to know there is an actual book being released this fall.
