T.I. Discusses New Book; Rapper To Sign Autographs This Week
T.I.’s new book is the follow-up to”Power & Beauty,” which was the rapper’s debut as a novelist.
The rapper is slated to make an appearance at Books-A-Million, where he will discuss his latest work of fiction, in addition to signing copies of the book.
According to T.I., “Trouble & Triumph,” took him eight months to complete and the book picks up where “Power & Beauty,” left off.
“There’s no comparison [to songwriting],” T.I. told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Most of my songs are based on a reality that they devised him something, and with these novels, which are the first I’ve ever done, it’s not married to any reality.”
Both books are co-authored with veteran writer David Ritz, who has penned books like XY and Z.
“We definitely have an equal collaboration,” T.I. said. “We start our brainstorming and the best idea stick, obviously.”
T.I. will make his appearance at Books-A-Million at 6:30 PM.
