Coloring books featuring contemporary pop icons are all the rage. We’ve seen lots of hard-to-find hip-hop related coloring books over the years, but Bun B and Shea Serrano make it super easy. The rapper and his illustrator teamed up to create the awesome Bun B’s Jumbo Coloring and Rap Activity Tumblr.

Regular updates include images of stars for coloring or other activities like cut-outs or “Rap Libs.” The latest being a Mad Libs take on Ice Cube’s “It Was a Good Day.”

All of this man-child fun unsurprisingly led to a book deal. Abrams, a publisher of illustrated books, acquired the rights and will be releasing Bun B’s Jumbo Coloring and Rap Activity Book starting fall 2013. So at least you have a gift idea planned for next holiday season.

Meanwhile, we’d be totally remiss not to mention Clayton Patterson’s “Legends of the Lower East Side” coloring book from last year? That shit was dope.
