The "W" Hotel Goes Gangsta

Ever the hip and trendy lodging choice for business and pleasure, The W Hotel thrives on service and image. It seems the W is looking to grab hotel market share starting at an usual age and demographic.

How else do you explain this coloring book, available online at W Hotels - The Store? Clifford the Big Red Dog too pansy for your kid? How about some east coast - west coast representin' using some blunt Crayolas to bring some hue to Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, yo?

The W explains thusly:
48 pages of line drawings of "Gangsta" rappers, done with the thick black line we all remember from the coloring books of our youth...

The juxtaposition of the outlaw image of the rappers with the childlike innocence of a coloring book makes for an instant laugh.
Right up until the point where someone pops a cap in your punk ass.

Thanks to Rapmaster Ed for pointing this out to the Gecko. Ed may look all prim and studious, but his roots are old-school fo shure.
