Tyrese is back and making his mark on the newest cover of JET Magazine. He’s in the midst of preparing for a big year which includes the release of two expected blockbuster movies (Fast Five & Transformers 3), a new book “How To Get Out Of Your Own Way“, and new album scheduled for a Summer release.

In the interview outtakes (which didn’t make the published article), Tyrese drops wisdom on how he continues to stay ‘hungry’:

“I live my life by these words: ‘You can’t get points today for yesterday’s game.’ You won MVP last week, OK, get over it. It’s like, there’s another level to this thing and people like Will Smith and Denzel and Rev Run and …[I have a few billion-dollar and multi-billion friends] … these people have really messed up from showing me this life and lifestyle because I know that there’s a-whole-nother level of playing field out there that I can get to. Now, people get complacent. People stop being inspired when they have more than all of their friends. If you do that, then you lose your motivation, because you the highest dude on your playing field. Like, amongst all of my people, I got the most. And if you’re able to say that and feel that, then you could probably get complacent and lose focus on trying to get to the next level, because you have more than all of your friends and family. But I purposely stopped myself from being on that trip.”
