Singing on a bus in a Coca-Cola commercial launched Tyrese’s (born Tyrese Gibson) career as both a singer and an actor. Raised in the Watts section of Los Angeles, Tyrese solidified his fame as an R&B heartthrob in the late ’90s with the release of his gold-selling self-titled LP. But it was his film debut as the lead in John Singleton’s 2001 film Baby Boy that turned him into a bona fide film actor and star. In Hollywood, Tyrese has carved a niche for himself in big-budget action dramas like Transformers and 2 Fast 2 Furious. The multi-talented superstar released the album Three Kings as one-third of the R&B trio TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank).
