FRIENDS star Aisha Tyler found herself with a starring role in Twista's new video SLOW JAMZ after pal Kanye West hired her to talk at the beginning of the track.

West was so impressed with his actress pal's efforts he asked her to be in the song's accompanying video.

She says, "I was just in the studio when Kanye was working on that track and he asked me to put something down so I just did that little speaking part.

"Then he asked me if I wanted to be in the video. It was cool. I just got to hang out."
