Baby Boy 2 Coming of Age

Baby Boy 2 really doesn’t seem like a dream anymore after this latest news.   Tyrese took to Instagram to post artwork for the movie.  We told you earlier this month that Tyrese teased a sequel to the well-liked movie.

Checkout the latest tease for Baby Boy 2!

Someone even commented on Instagram after our last story about a Baby Boy sequel.

The follower said verbatim, “Tarsji (Taraji) is way past her starter role in baby boy (Baby Boy) even if There’s (the) mindset about black women is stuck in misogyny.”

He/she went on to say, “Taraji has outgrown BabBoy (Baby Boy) Ty and his Yvette mindset.”

Yes, that’s certainly one way to look at it. 

Another way to look at it is the fact that we see Taraji on this poster.  

Could it be just a publicity stunt that she signed off on? Sure!  But let’s just wait and see.

The real question is, why is Snoop in the pic?  Didn’t he die?
