Tyrese Gibson has been sort of low key lately; but this morning he showed up in a big way interviewing on The Rickey Smiley Morning Show. Most people may not know that the R & B singer got his start singing a jingle in a Coca-Cola commercial years ago. After the music world was introduced to the large voice coming from such a small young man the rest was history. Tyrese has brought you hits such as "Lately", "How You Gonna Act Like That" and "Sweet Lady". He's also starred in movies such as "Baby Boy", "2 Fast 2 Furious" and "Transformers". The main purpose of the interview is for his new role of published author. Tyrese's new book is entitled: "How To Get Out Of Your Own Way". Tyrese explained that everyone's guilty of self sabbatoge or self defeat at times. Tyrese stated that he was inspired to write the book when his mentor/friend Will Smith said, "You can often tell how far your life/career will go based on the 5 people you spend the most time with. If your having problems in life you may need to change the people around you that don't belong in your life." Tyrese mentioned that he's not afraid of anyone telling him no. People are victim of their own choices he stated. He seems to be pretty proud of his latest project which is currently being sold on Amazon.com. Tyrese will be on BET's 106 & Park tomorrow promoting his new movie "Fast 5" (the latest installation of Fast & Furious) which will be released on April 29,2011. He also mentioned that he will be in "Transformers 3" due to be released July 1, 2011. Tyrese stated that he'd be releasing a new album later this year and will likely be going on tour as well.
