Tyrese Gibson Speaks on Vin Diesel & The Rock’s Alleged Feud + State of R&B and New Black Ty Album

You know him from his role in the “Fast and the Furious” film franchise, singer-actor Tyrese Gibson joins Sway in the Morning and we take a little trip down memory lane. Watch below to hear everything from Gibson’s humble beginnings to John Singleton discovering him in the feature film “Baby Boy.” Fast-forward a few years Gibson has made quite a name for himself as a Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, television producer, and actor.

Gibson talks to us about his latest film “The Fate of the Furious” and the reason why he feels the franchise has such a solid fan base. He attributes much of the worldwide success of the films to character and cast diversity. “We’re proud to represent these new standards that we’ve been able to create in Hollywood.” Gibson doesn’t shy away from his take on the racially insensitive ad that Pepsi released yesterday. Here’s his advice to corporate America: “Get some more Black people in your boardrooms. Get some more diversity on your boardrooms.”

Before wrapping up, the actor gives some relationship advice and gets into his new life as a married man.


Icon of hip-hop culture and a pivotal part of the MTV News team, Sway has been a staple of the music-news arena for more than a decade. From giving Eminem, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac their very first radio airplay on his local show in the mid-’90s to providing television viewers with their first good look at some of today’s hottest celebrities in music, film, fashion and sports. Sway has been there for some of music and the world’s biggest moments.
