Tyrese Gibson (formal)*Tyrese Gibson is getting really personal on his new album, “Black Rose.” He opened up to HipHollywood about the lead single, “Dumb Sh*t,” being about his breakup with an ex.

“I was in a relationship for 5 years and I got caught cheating and doing some dumb sh*t so the song is real,” he said about the song, which features Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa.

However, he’s not talking about his relationship with Norma Mitchell with whom he’s fighting over custody of their 5-year-old daughter, but another previous relationship.

“I feel like this is my confessions album,” he said comparing his album to Usher‘s 2004 diamond-selling classic album,  “Confessions.”

“When you think about all the music that is out now, there is a lot of singing a lot of rapping but I think the music that is cutting through is the music that’s honest,” he added.
