TV One’s edgy docu-series UNCENSORED, which explores the private lives of some of today’s most notable personalities, highlights singer and actor Tyrese this Sunday, September 13 at 10 P.M. ET/9C. Followed by an encore presentation at 11 PM/9C, the episode will re-air on Wednesday, Sept 16 at 10 PM/9C. On this episode, Tyrese opens up about his marriage, the colorism he faced while growing up and how the late director John Singleton changed his life when he was cast him in the iconic film Baby Boy.
Tyrese Gibson — referred to as Tyrese — began his career at the age of 14, performing in local talent shows around his home in Los Angeles’ Watts section. His big break came when he starred in a commercial for Coca-Cola, followed shortly in 1998 by his self-titled debut album for RCA. 2000 Watts arrived three years later and I Wanna Go There appeared a year after that. It wasn’t until late 2006 that he released his fourth album, Alter Ego, a double-disc set split between R&B and rap material. Alter Ego was Tyrese’s fourth consecutive Top Ten R&B album. A couple years later, he teamed up with Tank and Ginuwine for Three Kings, the debut album from his R&B supergroup TGT. A major success, it debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 chart. He continues to flourish in the acting real with his next project being the newest installment of the ever-popular Fast and Furious franchise, FF9, debuting in 2021.
