Since Chance the Rapper released his latest mixtape, Coloring Book, it has been all the rave on social media platforms and furthermore, the Billboard charts. Earning its way into the Billboard 200, the project, which is exclusive to Apple Music, has become the first record to receive such distinction merely off of internet streams. As successful as it has been thus far, a lingering thought, triggered by the title of the mixtape, has been whether Chance would capitalize on the concept of a coloring book. Well, it looks like a group of people were inspired by Chance’s recent project so much that they took matters into their own hands and created their own coloring book.

The Interns, a group of writers and illustrators who are known for their children’s book modeled after Jay- Z and Kanye‘s Nigg-s in Paris, have created a fourteen page coloring book. Each page contains an image that is coupled with an accompanying lyric from Chance’s fourteen song mixtape.

Coloring Book currently holds the number eight spot on the Billboard 200 with a total of 38,000 units, which is equivalent to 57.3 million streams. With availability to other streaming services starting in a few days, there is no telling how much more success this mixtape will bring to Chance.

Since there are policies that prevent free mixtapes from being eligible for a Grammy, it makes sense as to why Chance has backed a petition that fights against this. Without these restrictions in place, he would definitely be a Grammy-nominated artist, maybe even a winner.
