In recent years, Port Arthur, Texas emcee Bun B has done quite a bit outside of music. The Rap-A-Lot Records artist and co-founder of UGK announced in 2011 that he would join the faculty at Rice University as “distinguished lecturer” to teach a Hip Hop and Religion-focused class at the college’s school of humanities.

PSFK first-reported on the latest venture from the #1 charting artist.

In 2004, Anthony “Aye Jay” Morano released The Gangsta Rap Coloring Book published on Last Gasp Books.
