Book Review:

Few Spoilers Here and There… 

This book was good as the first one. I wish T. I
Will hurry up and put out book 3. Also, I’m upset because I want to know if Beauty sister got killed. I’m like why she invited her sister and going to leave her she’s blind but smart. I wish she didn’t attend the wedding with the explosion. Also, I do wonder if Power bride to be or Beauty husband got killed.

And I hope in the next book Slim dies because he is a headache, and pain in everybody ***. He’s crazy as you know what and people are sitting trusting that fool once again. And Rashaun or Rashad or whatever is trusting that crazy fool to soon after whole he’s going to die too.

Lastly, Beauty always marrying someone for the wrong reason and the person always ends up In a Mob of some sort. And she doesn’t love them and stay running from Power until the end I’m still mad at her for leaving her sister.

Book 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.

Book Review: 

Hoodlum 2 (Good Book) Wasn’t disappointed I need a part 3 

Hoodlum 2: Spoilers

Bruh, this book was really good, and now I see how Tech died and the reason behind it, but I am wondering why? I do know I wanted to know did he know who he was robbing though? And I also knew something was up Sikes I’m lying lol but man, I thought Monae and Shai were getting somewhere fooled me lol. But I am also itching for Shai to find out about Honey and Brunco or whatever how you spell his name. And war is definitely at its high with Clark’s family. It’s going to get a juicer, and I am itching for more omg.

Also, something is up with Shai sister boyfriend Snake, I kept saying to myself they have to watch that fool, and his sister is hard headed something going to happen, and I feel it and dude are stirring her in the wrong direction. But I do wish Swann, tell Shai about Honey and Brunso foreal because I know they smash, and she is feeling him, he be around her more than Shai is and that is not good at all.

In my mind, I am like is that even Shai baby hmmm hmmm. Man, though I just hope that part 3 will not be coming out so late because I am itching for more.
