Singer/actor Tyrese gave major props to his close friend and former co-star Taraji P. Henson’s hard work and ethics for making it in Hollywood. On the heels of Taraji’s new hit series Empire’s success Tyrese, who first worked with Taraji in John Singleton’s 2001 film Baby Boy, applauded his former co-star on making it in Tinsel Town “the right way” (aka not the infamous casting couch route).
Tyrese posted a picture of Taraji on Instagram and wrote in the caption:
