(AllHipHop News) Tyrese apparently wants the public to respect him as a rapper. The Grammy-nominated R&B singer informed his 8.9 million Instagram followers that he is close to dropping a rap album.
In fact, the Fast & Furious cast member says the project took inspiration from three of the most celebrated figures in Hip Hop - Dr. Dre, 2Pac, and Jay-Z. He also claimed the album will "change Hip Hop."
