"Power & Beauty" revolves around two childhood friends who are torn apart by dangerous dealings.

On Wednesday, T.I. was released from jail after spending 11 months in jail and already, the Atlanta-based rapper has a reality series in the works. But he isn't stopping there.

According to the Associated Press, T.I. has also inked a new book deal with publisher Harper Collins. A rep for the publishing company said that his book, Power & Beauty, is slated to be released in October.

Co-written by David Ritz, Power & Beauty tells the fictional story about two childhood friends who are torn apart by dangerous dealings while growing up in Atlanta.

T.I. was arrested in September 2010 in Los Angeles on drug charges after he was found in possession with ecstasy pills. He was sentenced last October to serve 11 months in prison and was set to be released at the end of September. He is serving the rest of his sentence in a halfway house.
