To me, he will ALWAYS be dude at the back of the bus singing, "Always Coca-Cola!"


I'm okay with Tyrese, but this biting of Tupac's title doesn't sit right.


I don't get it … why the hate? What has Tyrese said/done to deserve being called a "'black as ish' jerk off?" And how is saying that NOT an example of colorism?


Remember when the word 'documentary' still had some cachet to it? This z lister will probably get booked on the Steve Harvey show to advertise this "film"; and they will spend the entire hour giving free advice to Black women.


I side eye any black woman that supports this "black as ish" jerk off.
