Interview: Tyrese

Thursday, August 26, 2021


Hey Mofos! 

I got to chat with Tyrese about his new partnership with his travel company Voltron Travel. First, I have to give him a shout out for taking the time to chat with the smaller outlets about this because we are often told our outlet isn't top tier and not worthy enough of being included at the table, but I am always appreciative when celebs include us in the conversation. 

Now back to the scheduled program.. check out the interview on Check the Rhymes:

Here's some more details about the partnership from the press release: 

Tyrese Gibson, international box office star and six-time GRAMMY Award® nominee announced an exclusive partnership with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) and Voltron Travel, LLC, of which he is CEO and President. TMCF provides scholarships and other educational opportunities for thousands of students every year.  Gibson, currently starring in F9: The Fast Saga says, “Partnering with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund is a true privilege. Voltron Travel is fully committed to empowering black excellence by investing in the next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders.” To kick-start the partnership, Gibson has initially pledged $100,000 of Voltron Travel’s profits based on a percentage of net sales. 

In addition, the collaboration will launch with an exciting opportunity to directly impact HBCU students’ classroom experience. The “Back-to-School Success Kit" will provide select students from across the Black College Community an opportunity to receive a “success” package including school supplies and gear and travel vouchers.

TMCF member-schools include America’s publicly-supported Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Predominantly Black Institutions (PBIs). As the nation’s largest organization exclusively representing the Black College Community, TMCF works to help identify and nurture HBCU students to become the next generation of global leaders. 

Gibson recently relaunched Voltron Travel, an online travel platform powered by Priceline® Partner Network. It is currently the first and only Black-owned service of its kind dedicated to providing an exceptional booking experience for people of color.
