Whilst some argue these are in very bad taste, you can’t deny there is something unique about these coloring books.
Only selling in TopShop for £6, they aren't exactly targeting children. But of course, the British media love to get hot under the collar about minor issues--it saves them writing about the major ones. In short, gangster coloring books are controversial.
All the fuss means they are set to become collectors' items and it's only a matter of time before you can sell these for 10 times their original cost on EBay.
UPDATE: Don't say I didn’t tell you…
Topshop has pulled The Gangsta Rap Coloring Book from the shelves of its flagship Oxford Street store in the UK, after the book generated numerous complaints.
