After a successful run with his first book, Power & Beauty, rapper T.I. released his second novel ti*led Trouble & Triumph. Fans lined up at the Buckhead Barnes & Noble at 4pm patiently waiting for The Kang to arrive at 7pm.

Both Power & Beauty and Trouble & Triumph are co-authored by David Ritz, a veteran writer who has released his own works ti*led XY and Z. T.I. felt good about the collaboration, saying:

“We definitely have an equal collaboration. We start our brainstorming and the best ideas stick, obviously.”
