(AllHipHop Rumors) OUCH. I have heard a lot about both Tyrese and The Rock. Not so much about Vin Diesel - just that he was a break dancer. So, we see a lot of Tyrese on social media and in the blogs. There’s always something because he pushes that as a part of his brand. The Rock is slightly different. He has a well-manicured image. But, don’t get it twisted, The Rock is a beast in real life like in the movies. Now, we all know that Tyrese and The Rock ain’t gonna be fighting in real life, BUT…there is another fight. The other fight is the fight between the big dogs and the “pups” as The Rock would put it.
Lets recap. The next “Fast & Furious” movie got pushed back a year because The Rock has his own spin-off movie coming. Lets face it, The Rock is a huge super star that can carry a whole movie. That is no knock against either Tyrese or Vinny D. They are stars too, but The Rock has this hard-to-attain popularity. He’s the number 1 social media star as well. ANYWAY. Tyrese went directly at The Rock on social media stating that Dwayne Johnson (Rockie’s real name) had made the F&F franchise all about him. Then Vin Diesel posted a picture that said “brothers” and only had him, Tyrese and the late Paul Walker in it. As you may recall, Paul and Vin were the original stars of the F&F. The Rock came along later. So did Jason Statham,who will co-star with The Rock in the new movie.
So check out what Tyrese said over the weekend:
Diversity, love, multi ethnic worldwide multi generational, United Nations, One Race, Fast Family...... Until Dewayne showed up I guess this whole time he had a problem cause he wasn't the ONLY ONE on the movie poster........... I guess dreams do come true congratulations to @hhgarcia41 and @therock you guys are just amazing you really broke up the #FastFamily I tried to warn you guys... You thought I was hating...... I was simply fighting to keep the family together what makes us great is when you see us all TOGETHER we don't fly solo..... #MyLastPost today..... I got 3 years of venting on this clown - They offered but YOU didn't have to agree with a solo #HobbsMovie #OriginalFastFamily we salute you and stand on your shoulders #VinDiesel #PaulWalker #RobCohen #RomanTej were offered a spin off we TURNED IT DOWN!!!
And…here is what The Rock had to say:
To add insult to add insult to injury, The Rock posted a trailer to the new movie:
DAMN. Shots fired, grenades thrown, missiles launched!
By the way, Vin Diesel seemingly did a flip move over the weekend. I think it may have been a "if you can't beat 'em join 'em move" an, just like that, Tyrese is out on his own. This is what Vin said in his Facebook:
“Brotherhood… and all it’s complexities … A woman named Jan Kelly responded to a question I had asked on Facebook, ‘who they would like to see me work with?’ She said would love to see me work with Dwayne. I listened to her request and he became Hobbs (the character that The Rock plays)… I know there has been a lot of speculation as to why the Fast 9 release date was pushed… but it would be unfair to say it is anyone’s fault. As we plot the course to expand the Fast & Furious universe, one must be mindful to take stock of the roads we took to get here. The pillars of authenticity, family and most importantly, our loyal fan’s perspective has been instrumental in procuring success. However, like any vehicle that has run around the globe 8 times, the franchise is in need of maintenance. My good friend and the godfather of Universal, Ron Meyer has granted me the time to do just that. We have some very exciting news to share soon… stay tuned.”
What could that plan be? I bet they do another spin-off to quell the tension.
Remember...Vin and The Rock had beef previously. Sheesh! After doing some research, all these dudes need to chill!
