Rapper T.I. has come out of the prison gates roaring: On Tuesday, HarperCollins will release his novel "Power & Beauty: A Love Story of Life on the Streets (William Morrow);" he's also expanded his management team to include Hip Hop Since 1978 (which reps Kanye, Lil Wayne and Drake), working on a new album, a VH1 reality series and Grand Hustle Entertainment, which is busy with B.o.B., OMG Girlz, Young Dro, and Lil Sean.
The first release from the Neptunes' Arista-affiliated label Star Trak is also its first to top The Billboard 200. "Star Trak Presents... Clones" sold 249,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan, and leads seven albums into the top-20. The album, which also lands at No. 1 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, boasts an all-star cast of Dirt McGirt, Clipse, Foxy Brown and Busta Rhymes.
