Description

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.

The explosive street-lit epic of Power and Beauty continues

When his mother was killed, Paul "Power" Clay and his closest friend, Tanya "Beauty" Long, fell under the spell of Slim Simmons, a savvy and ruthless Atlanta businessman. To Power, Slim's world held everything he thought he wanted: women, wealth, and power. He discovered too late that Slim is a ruthless killer.

Now Beauty must broker a dangerous bargain to save the man she loves. But is saving Power worth sacrificing herself--body and soul? A tale of gangstas and sistas, money masters and politicians that moves from Paris to New York, Atlanta to Tokyo, the Caribbean to California, Trouble & Triumph is a hip-hop mash-up of loyalty, betrayal, revenge, desire, greed, family, politics, and absolution-- and of two unforgettable young star- crossed lovers from the streets who will risk everything for their dreams . . . and for each other.
