Man you're not my favorite rapper just because your music is inspiring, you're my favorite because of where you stand in life. Kids' educations are going down the drains and here you are telling them to read more. I can't find another rapper who's been through as much adversity as you, and still come out on top saying stuff like that. I be praying for you and keep up the good work. hope to get my hands on power and beauty soon.

I know that you are busy, I will not take much of your time but I wanted to tell you something..you inspire me and I tell people that I am SOO proud of you because you have gone through a lot but you just keep persevering-KUDOS! I am a mother, a full time college student, and a full time employee and wife. I hardly ever get time to myself as one could imagine but when I do I love to read, it keeps me close to my mother and grandparents(I lost them to cancer in 2000,2003 and then 2005) but I am like you don't feel sorry for me, I am a survivor if nothing else, God got me. I just wanted to tell you that regardless to whether I win this contest or not, I will support you and buy the book because I read an excerpt on Sandrarose.com and you are talented-stay the course!!! Be blessed and be very successful and I will not worry about what will happen with your career or your family because you are living proof that angels exist and GOD GOT YOU SO YOU WILL BE FINE!!!!:-)
Please tell your family that I have been watching their successes-Zonnique, my daughter is 5 and LOVES OMG Girlz and I am proud of Tiny for everything, being strong, a great mother and a great businesswoman!!! All my love,

I hate I missed your live stream. I agree that your life experiences and the things you have seen puts you in a perfect position to write this type of book.

Whatup tip,

I've always been a big fan since I can remember, and your music has been one of the main forces that has kept me motivated and ambitious through all the tribulations I've been through growing up. Being dark skinned, but extremely intelligent at the same time, I sometimes ran into roadblocks in school and such, because no one expects someone that looks like me to be as smart as I am. I really appreciate what you've done to inspire me and youth like me to make a change in the way we live. I'm about to graduate high school this June with straight A's and great scores, and I hope to go to Stanford and earn a degree, and one day make enough money to get my people out of the cycle of poverty they have been trapped in for so long. When I do make it big, and when you see my on your TV changing the world, you can sit back and be proud that you at least changed the life of one lil man.

Oh and if you can send a copy of your book my way, it would be much appreciated. I dont even know how to explain how tight it would be to have a personal signed copy of a book written by you, the man who has had such a profound impact on my life.

Much love from texas.

Dear T.I,

I have always been a fan of yours and being that I am only 16 I feel that this book would be perfect for me. Each day I face and Im surrounded by negativity, boys, etc. But I have always looked up to you and your wife as my role models. So please do me a favor and give me a copy or your pheomenal book. I am positive that it will have a positive impact on meand my life, and I will gain so much more knowledge from you. So thank you Mr.Harris. I appreciate it a lot.

Wassup TIP, Love from California.

I've been through your timeline of success and trials and difficulties. I can relate in what you been through. Listen to all of your albums and i can see that you changed through out the years.Your flow changed, i really liked the old skool Tip. I hope to get to see more of that old Tip lyrical wise. Some People compare you to Tupac, I can see why. Its cool to see you writing a novel and publish it. Hoping i get to be on of them 10 to get a signed copy of "Power & Beauty"and I hope i win the AkooBeats Also I've been Using the Trend #AkooBeats the past few days on twitter i've been you seen them. KdotKhmer is my twitter name. Alright King, keep grinding. Can't till your new projects are finished. Salute!!
From your Ultimate fan Kevin.

T.I. you have always been an inspiration to me and I would love a signed copy of your new book. You never gave up during your hard times and because of your music I will never give up through mine.

I hope to one day be a famous rapper like you and to inspire as many people as you have. You once said that even though you are from the gutter you can still make something of yourself and because of that I have never stopped trying.

Please keep up the great work and continue to inspire everyone who hears your music. It's good to have you back

What's going on?

I can go on & on about how much of a fan I am of yours but I'll be on here all.....day. Straight up. I will say that I turned 25 (2 days before your birthday) and I been riding with you since middle school when I'm Serious came out. No one around here (Athens, GA) was checking for you back then but I kept telling people "Y'all need to listen to him" and finally you got them with Dope Boys. Got every album, every movie you were in, now I need this book lol. I got your back no matter what these people say about you in these streets, just know this one fan right here hold you down. I have gotten in plenty of arguments about why you better than so & so & why they shouldn't judge you & what not, like you're a fam member or something. I love your music, movie (acting/producing), motivational speaking skills, and now, I'm ready for this book. I love to read & I saw you wrote a review in 1 of my favorite authors', Wahida Clark's, book. Can't remember which one it was. I already tweeted her about you & her doing a collab one day. She's with it, check her out @WahidaClark mine is @KandyKane923. If I can't get an autographed book from you, don't worry I'll get it Tuesday. I'm out. But until next time, Keep It Pimpin', Pimpin'!!!!

What day will you be in LA for your book signing? You mentioned the place but not the date during your Ustreaming.

Nice to see someone with the power and position to influence doing the right thing. I'm not a big reader myself, but like Tip said we as a African American community need to step our game up and get more people into books. Thanks for the step in the right direction Tip!
