Tyrese Darnell Gibson (born December 30, 1978), also known simply as Tyrese, is an American R&B singer, rapper, actor, author, former fashion model and MTV VJ. After releasing several albums, he transitioned into films, with lead roles in several Hollywood releases. Gibson grew up in the Watts district of Los Angeles, California. His mother, Priscilla Murray Gibson (née Durham), raised him and his three older siblings as a single parent after Gibson's father, Lurk Gibson, left. Gibson's career began when he was discovered on a bus. An appearance in a 1994 Coca-Cola advertisement, singing the phrase "Always Coca-Cola", led to bigger fame. As an actor, he rose into prominence when he starred in John Singleton's Baby Boy in 2001, which Singleton confirmed "A prequel of Boyz n the Hood" in which he wrote and directed 10 years earlier in 1991, receiving an Academy Award nomination. Tupac Shakur was originally chosen to play the character of Joseph "Jody" Summers, but the role landed into Gibson's hands after his death. Baby Boy co-starred with Taraji P. Henson and Snoop Dogg and was a blockbuster hit. The film lead Gibson into doing two more films with the director in 2 Fast 2 Furious
