Between working on his own new album, shepherding the careers of younger Grand Hustle artists like B.o.B. and Iggy Azalea, filming a reality show with his wife and kids and acting in movies, you would think T.I. wouldn't have much time for reading books, let alone writing them. But somehow the King of the South gets it done. Tip announced recently that he'll be releasing his second novel Trouble & Triumph: A Novel of Power & Beauty in September.

Trouble & Triumph
will follow the stories of the characters Power and Beauty, whom T.I. introduced in his first novel Power & Beauty: A Love Story of Life on the Streets, released last October. Both novels were co-written by David Ritz.

Tip first got into fiction writing while locked up for a probation violation in 2010 and 2011. As far as prison habits go, there are certainly worst ones to cling to.

Trouble & Triumph
hits stores September 11.
