Almost showtime. HOBBS & SHAW AUGUST 2ND WORLDWIDE 🌍
My “On my way out the door to get my morning workout in before work and my 3yr old Jazzy says Daddy can you put together this Barbie house please” look. It’s a two story house. 🤦🏽♂️ Of course, I can sweetheart - daddy can do anything, but let’s get mommy because she’s awesome at this and wanted to personally put it together for you 😈
TONIGHT on @MTV You can feel the mana and power in the air ✊🏾 Got something big planned for you tonight when I receive my Generation Award and I showcase and merge my black and samoan cultures. We bring it. #MTVAwards #GenerationAward🍿
My brothers. These are some bad dudes and I appreciate greatly their efforts and sick talents as dancers. They sure as hell made this big boy look good and repped our cultures strong 💪🏾✊🏾 #Steppers #Siva #MTVAwards #IconGenerationAward Tune in tomorrow night on @MTV
You ain’t cheatin’ if you ain’t eatin’ 👊🏾🥞 Happy Father’s Day to all the papa bears holding their families and cheat meals down. HOBBS & SHAW AUGUST 2ND 🌍🍿
Things like this are never easy for anyone. Especially the family who sends me their requests for their loved ones in hospice. Nancy you sure are loved endlessly and you’re so special. And clearly you have AMAZING taste being my fan🤣Nancy I hope this whole thing makes you smile and I hope you can FEEL the MANA & ENERGY that we & the world are sending you. All my love, light & gratitude ~ DJ #TeamBencat #TeamGRAMMY ❤️
At least my 29yr old goals & visions were as sharp as my silly eyebrows 😂 in this 2001 @MTV interview. This weekend I’ll have the privilege of being honored by MTV for the ICON GENERATION AWARD. Shaking my head as I’m watching this kid talk about his long term goals in Hollywood, WWE and beyond. In 2001 there was no “Hollywood blueprint” for a guy like me — a 6’5, 275lb half Samoan/ half Black pro wrestler with absurdly waxed eyebrows (Jesus Christ 🤦🏽♂️ ) with a southern accent. I was and still am, a walking contradiction who was willing to open my mind like a sponge to learn, put in the hard work, take the big risks and eventually I figured out that the most powerful thing I could ever be to Hollywood and the world - is myself. Regardless of the road you’re all on, be YOU and if a blueprint for your goals doesn’t exist - fuck it - create your own. And for the love of all things cool, dudes please don’t wax your eyebrows like I did. #IconGenerationAward #MTVAwards #ChaseGreatness #NotEyebrows
This one means a lot. Box office revenues are cool, but the thing that really matters is the blessing to positively influence and impact generations along the way. We’re gonna rock the house and the mana (and tequila; ) will flow this Saturday night... #generationaward #mtv #tequilatime 🍿🥃
I never want to just play in the game. I always want to change the way the game is played. Raising the bar for season 5 for our @HBO ’s BALLERS. And on a personal irony note ~ it’s been quite humbling shooting these scenes amongst NFL teams because for years my #1 real life goal was to play in the NFL. I failed and that dream never came true. But over the years I realized that playing in the NFL was the best thing that NEVER HAPPENED for me because after I failed (and after a fun battle with depression 🤪 ) it created a relentless drive that defines who I am today. #grateful #dreamsthatdontcometrue #onward
For the biggest showdown the FAST & FURIOUS franchise has ever seen, I wanted to cast my legit family to play my brothers. Proud of my cuz @romanreigns in his acting debut - awesome job. He’s one of the nicest & kindest men you’ll ever meet.. but, if you’re an asshole he’ll rip your face off 😃🤦🏽♂️ #BrotherlyBond HOBBS & SHAW AUGUST 2ND 🌍
WOW. Amazing job @heather12ooney ! You’re an incredible artist and thank you so much for your beautiful and kind words below👇🏾👇🏾 and look forward to meeting you one day. Focus & effort! ・・・ After about 100 hours of drawing time on this portrait it is complete! Colored pencil drawing of the one and only @therock An inspiration to people all over the world and a person who continually strives to empower the lives of others. For this portrait I referenced his recent headshot from his well-deserved cover of @time magazine as one the 100 most influential people. Wise words from @therock - “Success at anything will always come down to this: focus and effort, and we control both.” Drawing video is up on my YouTube channel - Link in bio! Materials: @carandache Luminance pencils on @strathmoreart 500 series bristol.
I always get special requests from fans who are “in the fight”. They all move me to my core and especially, Olivia’s. She’s 65yrs old and a massive fan. In hospice care and staying so strong. I thought I’d send her this video to bring some smiles her way. I don’t know why things happen the way they do in life, but I do know we can always control our response and I’m sending all the love, light, strength and positive energy Olivia’s (and her family’s ) way. And thank you guys our there for doing the same. Stay strong Olivia! DJ ❤️
A lil’ behind the scenes taste of the HOBBS & SHAW savagery that takes place in SAMOA. This bludgeoning will be in the film, but unfortunately the scene where I bite the bad guy’s eye out and spit it on the dirt didn’t make it. MPAA ratings board forbid us to show it because it was too violent. True story. Plus, anytime you see a Samoan in a fight wearing their Lava Lava (traditional fabric I’m wearing around my waist ) you know the other person is getting fucked up 🤣 HOBBS & SHAW AUGUST 2ND 🌎 #SamoanSmackdown Much love and respect to my stuntman brother @rosskohnstam who commits with no pads, takes my spine buster and smacks his head on the earth like a fucking champ.
Allow me to reintroduce HER. My ace, @vanessa__kirby For HOBBS & SHAW it was important to me that our female lead was the central driving force within our storyline. Also crucial she had a sharp wit and bad ass skill set (MI6 operative ) that rivaled the male characters in our movie. Strong female characters are always important to me in anything I produce — and with HOBBS & SHAW we flipped the script and raised the bar for our females and the entire FAST & FURIOUS franchise. Allow me to reintroduce HER. #VanessaKirby #HattieShaw #LetsDance HOBBS & SHAW AUGUST 2ND 🌎
Thank ya EMMY’s. I’m quite proud to have produced TITAN GAMES. We had three goals for our show/ 1: Deliver an electric & exciting show for the home audience. 2: Deliver for @NBC - became the networks highest rated Thursday night in years. 3: Create a platform that shines the light on inspiring and good quality human beings. #foryourconsideration #emmys #titangames #nbc
Good day’s work on set of @hbo ’s BALLERS. My director, Chloe Domont and 1st AD, Gavin reviewing our shot list while I rehearse my scene and talk to myself on the phone like a crazy person. I am crazy, but it keeps me from going insane. Proud of this production crew - they’re working hard to deliver. #ballers #coast2coast #hbo @sevenbucksprod @daleverage
Cool news announcing Spanish thriller filmmaker, Jaume Collet-Serra as my director for DC’s BLACK ADAM. Jaume and I have worked together for the last two years making, DISNEY’S JUNGLE CRUISE - and I’ve been very impressed with his passion, work ethic, style, vision, tone and quality. He’s hungry to break new ground with BLACK ADAM and give the fans something very cool and special. I raise a double tequila 🥃 welcoming Jaume and can’t wait to bring to life the world’s anti-hero in black. #DC #JaumeColletSerra #BlackAdam⚡️
When art imitates life - I like to build stuff. Great week of production on season 5 of our HBO’s BALLERS. Good to be back with our hard working, exceptional production crew. They’re all focused and working hard to deliver a GREAT season with a strong tone. Get ready. #ballers #season5 #hbo #IBuildThings @sevenbucksprod @daleverage
I’m a gentleman who eats raw coffee grounds for breakfast and he’s an asshole who drinks tea. And that’s why we can’t be friends. HOBBS & SHAW AUGUST 2ND the fun begins 🌎
Ear tequila - spectacular results! In just over 72hrs, our new 🎧 are 100% sold out. THANK YOU. I don’t claim these new, first ever true in ear headphones designed for hardcore workouts (or any product I deliver to you ) - will make you jump higher, run faster, add more muscle or lose more fat. That’s all bullshit and not my style. But I do however, 100% guarantee that these will provide you with the FOCUS required to achieve all your goals and more. Thanks for your patience with the restock. Happy Training. #EarTequila #UnderArmour #ProjectRock
My #CheatDaySugarTrain rolls on down the line. Cookie ice cream sammiches (chocolate chip & peanut butter cookies with Oreo cookie ice cream ) from one of my fav spots in LA @themilkshop_la 1 slice of cheese cake 1 big ass chocolate fudge cookie with salted caramel chips made into a big ass smile, because fuck it it’s my happy time. I devoured this sugar train around midnight while sitting on my couch, watching Forensic Files md felt like a King. And by 1am I sat there looking like a drunk Jabba the Hut who was still solving every crime before the end of each episode. Very. Sexy. Enjoy your cheat meals my friends - they’re well earned. 🖤 ~ Jabba
War. And once again, allow me to reintroduce myself. HOBBS & SHAW AUGUST 2ND 🌎
It’s not pretty, but it’s heavenly. #CheatMealSunday as I needed some good cheat day fats so I went with a 33oz Bone In Ribeye with a 1 pound loaded baked potato. Whole heartedly enjoyed in my office earlier this evening. For the record, “Bone In Ribeye” was my nickname in college on Saturday nights. TMI. Enjoy your cheat meals my friends - they’re well earned 👊🏾🥩🥔
Just wrapped JUNGLE CRUISE, for DISNEY and had to shift major gears and to start filming season 5 of BALLERS for HBO. This series has been a helluva learning curve to produce and star in — but what will always matter most is you guys making us HBO’s #1 highest rated 30min show for years now. THANK YOU for rockin’ with us. I loved every minute of playing this character, “Spencer Strasmore” because we’re exactly one in the same. We look you directly in the eyes when we shake your hand. If we give our word to get something done - it gets done. If you cross us, we rip your jugular out. And there’s no problem that tequila (and maybe a few pills ) can’t help fix 😈🥃 #ballers #season5 #hbo #RoyceDa65
If Emily Blunt’s looks could kill 😈 Ladies and gents, that’s an OFFICIAL WRAP of production for our DISNEY’S JUNGLE CRUISE. To our hard working and brilliant crew and filmmakers - THANK YOU for your commitment and talent in making something great for our audience. THANK YOU to our partner & leader of global family entertainment, the WALT DISNEY CO for the trust you’ve placed in our hands for our beloved, timeless, iconic Disney park ride known as JUNGLE CRUISE. And finally, a heartfelt MAHALO to my one and only co-star, Emily Blunt. You play the female version of INDIANA JONES brilliantly with relentless ambition to find the one, elusive magical 💫 thing that could change humanity for the better - forever. Unfortunately, for you there’s no other skipper that knows the Amazon River like I do and all I care about is my money, my liquor and my cat. Good luck lady in trying to change the world ~ and not falling for my charm. So much fun making this film and we can’t wait to take you all on this EPIC adventure. That’s a wrap! And I’ll see ya down the road. #DISNEY #ShesAmbitious #AndHeHasTerriblyCharmingPuns #JungleCruise SUMMER 2020 🚢🗺🌴🌊
Allow me to reintroduce myself. #HobbsAndShaw AUGUST 2ND 🌎
May, 2019. The mana was real. Shooting a scene I will never forget for our DISNEY’S JUNGLE CRUISE. When you see the movie, this image will make sense and scene will come alive. Til’ then I’ll just keep on lookin’ like I see a big ass plate of flying chocolate chip cookies with a tequila chaser. #SkipperFrank #TheBackside #JungleCruise 🚢 🗺🌴🌊
Good way to close out our Memorial Day. The freedoms & safety to enjoy these blessed moments in my life with my babies, that I hold close to my 🖤 - I know don’t come without a sacrifice and burden to endure. I’m grateful to the bone and honor all the servicemen & servicewomen who gave their everything for the very blessings that we all enjoy. Hope you had a blessed Memorial Day weekend with your families. And got suckered into watching THE INCREDIBLES2 before bedtime for the 57th time. #memorialday #grateful #safesleeps 🇺🇸
