tyrese-gibsonThe young Black man with an electrifying smile and a raspy soul voice sitting on a bus singing about Coca-Cola has come a long way.

Now a best-selling author and sought-after movie star known for roles in blockbusters such as "Transformers and Fast & Furious," Tyrese Gibson is taking his fans on a journey through his life in his documentary titled, "A Black Rose That Grew Through Concrete."

The documentary details his upbringing, maturing from boy to man in Watts, Los Angeles. Tyrese shares a story to which man urban youth can relate – being exposed to gangs, drugs, and crime. However, that life was not his destiny. In the documentary Tyrese talks about the devotion that lead him to the success he has today.

In addition to his documentary that was released March 31 on his website,, the multitalented Tyrese is working on the Teddy Pendergrass biopic and the long awaited TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tank) album. The trio has a single available on iTunes that definitely sets the mood for the bedroom. Undoubtedly, Tyrese has beaten the odds but what makes him exceptional is his yearning to share with others that they too can rise up from the concrete.
