TYRESE GIBSON
7 p.m., Central High School Auditorium. Free.

Philander Smith College's popular "Bless the Mic" series closes out a successful season this Friday night with a lecture from Tyrese Gibson, the multi-talented rapper, R&B singer, action movie actor and former model. And now the Renaissance man can add another title to his diverse resume: self-help author.

It's his bookshelf debut, "How to Get Out of Your Own Way," that brings the heartthrob to town. Inside, Gibson bares himself in a confessional tell-all, exploring his childhood in the rough streets of Watts, Calif., and his problems with weight, recent divorces and other obstacles he chalks up to a cycle of self-destructive behavior. Says Tyrese, "I was merely ... a man who learned to get out of his own way before it was too late." Copies of the book will be available after his appearance.
