R+B star Tyrese is desperate to lure rapper-turned-actor Mark Wahlberg back into the recording studio, but the artist formerly known as MARKY MARK is convinced he's too old.

The pair star together in forthcoming movie Four Brothers and have become close pals on and off the set.

Tyrese thinks Wahlberg has still got what it takes, but the BOOGIE NIGHTS star thinks he should be banned from rapping for being too old.

He tells MTV, "I'm 34. There should be a law. You should only be able to rap up to a certain age."
