On Tuesday (Oct. 17), the Fast and The Furious star posted a photo on Instagram of him, JAY-Z and the President of Urban Music at RCA Records, Mark Pitts, and tagged a number of industry veterans.
In his post, Tyrese wrote, “Asked [sic] anybody I tagged about this album…… This new album is inspired by Jay-Z. My motto is #IDentityTheftDoubleAlbum is Jay’s spirit, PAC’s Soul and Sonically Dre’s Ears…… I know your first instincts is to say GTFOH put me in the ( Singer and Actor box and throw away the key )…but you will see folks very very soon that this rap album is far from play play……..”
Tyrese ended his post by claiming the album will change the genre and said he was doing it for the culture. “#LaughNowDickRideLater,” he added.
In a separate post, the actor posted a clip of a song that appears to be from the upcoming album. While its uncertain who is featured on the song, Tyrese wrote, “BlackTy feat Future this is an early reference #Ghostwriter when will I drop – no one knows.”
The actor also revealed he would be “pressing play” at the Roc Nation offices but said he wouldn’t be signing a deal with the label. “Not interested in deal, already signed myself,” he wrote.
