T.I. Reveals Cover Art for Debut Novel

Although T.I. is stuck in prison on some trumped-up charges, he’s not going to let it stop his grind. As we reported a couple weeks ago, The Atlanta rhyme-spitter is gearing up to release his first novel titled ‘Power & Beauty: A Love Story of Life on the Streets.’ The cover art of the book was recently unveiled on Tip’s official website, trapmuzik.com.

The cover features a very dramatic pop art-style photograph that shows the bottom half of a man and woman’s face over the Atlanta skyline, which matches perfectly with the book’s synopsis.

According to the publisher, HarperCollins, the novel is a coming-of-age tale set in the dangerous streets of Atlanta as Paul “Power” Clay and Tanya “Beauty” Long, face insurmountable odds living on their own after their matriarch dies. The book is “a love story, a crime story, a survival story [that] bristles with an electrifying authenticity born of Tip “T.I.” Harris’ hard life on the streets.”

Judging by the description, we wouldn’t be surprised if this book has its own movie adaptation in the works. Don’t forget, besides being a rapper, T.I. is a true businessman and he doesn’t miss any opportunities to extend his paper chasing.

‘Power & Beauty: A Love Story of Life on the Streets,’ which was co-written by esteemed author David Ritz, is expected to arrive on book shelves on Oct. 18. The book is available for pre-order now at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. And if everything goes according to plan, barring any foolishness from prison officials, T.I. should be a freed man on Sept. 28.
