T.I.P was finally released from an Arkansas prison early this morning and he not only has a book deal waiting for him, but a reality show too. Um…LUCKY!  According to theAssociated Press, T.I. has finalized a book deal with Harper Colllins and will release a novel titled “Power & Beauty” in October. The book, which was co-written with David Ritz, is a fictional story surrounding two childhood friends torn apart by dangerous dealings on the streets of Atlanta.

TI will also be followed by cameras over the next few months as he gears up for his new reality show that will focus on his adjustment to life as a free man as well as his attempt to climb back on top.  According to VH1′s press release:

In the new untitled T.I. series premiering December 5 at 10PM*, viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at the most private and personal moments of one of today’s hottest, most sought after Grammy winning artists as he is reunited with his wife and kids and thrust back into society at this crucial juncture in his life.

The half hour 10-episode series follows the “King of the South” at his most vulnerable state, as he is released from an 11 month Federal prison term, his second stint in three years.

Along the way we will see T.I. re-acclimate back into his life as a father, husband,  son and friend, as well as a musician, a clothier, a businessman, and an actor (he last starred in and produced Sony’s film TAKERS which opened number one at the box office the weekend prior to his arrest).

We will also witness T.I. behind the scenes in studio as he goes about recording yet another likely Grammy-award winning album.

All the while with T.I. needing to abide by a new set of restrictions and obstacles due to his probation terms. Can the King stay on the straight and narrow while juggling the chaos of his kingdom?

TI is now headed to a community living facility or home confinement in Atlanta where will he will remain until September 29th. Source
