T.I. stopped into BET’s “106 & Park” yesterday (November 5) for the first time since being released from prison.

When Tip was asked about when fans could expect the next album, the Atlanta emcee replied, “I’m trying to have something as soon as February.”

T.I. also discussed his new book, Power & Beauty. “It’s a fictional novel. It’s about a couple teenagers thrust into a very adult situation after…tragedy strikes their home and their mother dies.”

“How they handle that and how they used that to motivate them and push them forward…the decisions they make, the paths that life leads them after that, that’s really what the book is about,” explained T.I.
