Overview

Grammy Award-winning hip-hop artist, producer, and actor T.I. proved himself a powerful storyteller as well with the publication of his debut novel Power & Beauty. Now he follows up with his second riveting street-lit epic, Trouble & Triumph.

T.I.’s explosive sequel picks up the story of Paul “Power” Clay and Tanya “Beauty” Long, as Power takes over his mentor-turned-arch-enemy’s street empire, looking to turn it legit, while Beauty rises ever-higher in a glamorous world of fashion and celebrity. An authentic voice of the street, in the vein of Sistah Souljah and other successful authors of contemporary African-American commercial fiction, T.I. is a rap music legend who has lived at every strata of society, and whose hard life experience adds truth and fire to Trouble & Triumph.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In Grammy Award-winning rapper T.I.'s first novel, Power & Beauty, the eponymous teenagers are taken under the wing of notorious Atlanta gangster Charles "Slim" Simmons, but Beauty breaks away. Now she's ready to fight for Power. Some mixed response to the first, but the 100,000-copy first printing says that expectations are high.
