The newly released rapper T.I. must have have had a lot of time on his hands to write while locked up because he is looking to add author to his resume. The self proclaimed “King of the South” has a book deal with publisher HarperCollins to write a fictional love story.
“Power and Beauty: A Love Story of Life OnThe Streets” is about how love can overpower hustling, violence and deception. The main characters are Paul “Power” Clay and Tanya “Beauty” Long. It definitely sounds like it has been done before, but maybe the ATL rapper will put a personalized spin on it. We all know that his wife, Tiny, is the ultimate ride or die who stands by her man no matter how much trouble he seems to get himself into.
T.I. wrote the novel with David Ritz and it is slated to hit book stores and electronic readers on Oct. 18.
