Marcus Scribner, Tyrese Gibson, and Charlie Wilson be your teachers!
Black-ish star effortlessly rocked a printed red blazer with tailored trousers, all while Tyrese easily switched things up with a cream tux. Yet none of them went as bold as the iconic singer in his paisley jacket and silky satin pants!

IDFWU, and then E-40 joined him on stage!
Watch it all go down (above)!
