"She was a fast machine, she kept her motor clean, she was the best damn woman that I'd ever seen"
THANK YOU city of LAS VEGAS, Cosmopolitan Hotel and all the hard working locals and small businesses for being such welcoming hosts to me and our entire #BALLERS production crew. You helped make our shoot a big success. Grateful dap. 🏾 #WhatHappensInVegas#Ballers#HBO
NEW season...THIS JULY
Years ago I came to this one of kind Dade County Boot Camp Prison to talk with convicted felons about second chances at life. I knew this place was special and the world had to see positive impact it was having on these youth offenders.
I called our HBO partners and said let's make a powerful documentary that will have a lasting impact on our troubled youth and their families.
They said, done.
I then called the creators of LOCK UP and asked them to partner up on this.
They said done.
What you're watching here is prison intake at 2am. Inmates are bussed in, shocked by the intense process and have their heads shaved by one another, which explains why many have fucked up haircuts. It's brutal and just the beginning.
Mark your calendars and JOIN US THIS MONDAY on HBO.
Break em down. Build em up. #RockAndAHardPlace#SevenBucksProds#44Blue#HBODocumentaryFilms
TBT from the massive destroyed set of #HERCULES in Budapest and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my producing partner Beau Flynn of @flynnpictureco.
We made a pact years ago to build big business and make global movies that impact and entertain audiences around the world. From JOURNEY 2: MYSTERIOUS ISLAND to HERCULES to SAN ANDREAS to BAYWATCH to RAMPAGE to SKYSCRAPER to many more big ones we're developing and announcing soon.
Beau's one of the most successful and sought after producers in Hollywood.
As an A-list producer he brings additive value to every studio partnership with his filmmaking acumen, storytelling and killer instinct. But what sets him apart from the pack is he achieves global success with class, poise and integrity. Very rare combo in our business.
He's a good man who puts in the hard work daily to take care of his family and serve our global audience.
Bottom line: he's an asshole, but it's his birthday and I gotta play nice. #HappyBirthdayBeau#FlynnPicturesCo#SevenBucksProds#SendThePeopleHomeHappy
Rest In Peace & Love to my second dad Sib Hashian.
Don't know why things have to happen the way they do sometimes. When loved ones leave us so suddenly without having a chance to say goodbye.
Perhaps the lesson here is the reminder to live our lives as full and as present as we possibly can, because we just never know what's around the corner.
What a full and exciting life this man lived. What an amazing family he created, loved, watched over and protected.
Being on stage, in front of adoring fans, friends and family. Keeping the beat one last time. Your passing in this manner is extremely poetic and somehow beautiful.
Thank you for the many life lessons you've taught over the years. Grateful.
We love you Sib. We miss you. Yhmwitcoltroml. "Hasan burgers" for everyone in heaven.

Taitusi this message is for you. Make a Wish just called me and I wish I could be there with you in Hawaii right now.
Even at 13yrs old you're already way stronger than I'll ever be. Ever. Even though we've never met, I can already tell you're one of the coolest and most amazing kids I've ever talked to like this.
I just want you to know how amazing and special of young boy you are. You inspire every single person around you right now. Including me.
God bless you and your family and yes I'm gonna go crazy on rice crispy treats this weekend for my cheat meal in your honor 🤙🏾🏾 Alofa atu,
Front bumps and blue eyed demons.. dig our NEW world premiere trailer for #BAYWATCH.
We have RED BAND trailer coming next month that's so exquisitely raunchy we're creating a new color. Until then enjoy this one and check out the full trailer in my bio. #BAYWATCH Summer is coming! Let's have some fun.. MAY 26th 🏾
This guys salt of the earth and a real pleasure to work with this Hollywood OG Steve Guttenberg. Had some great chats with him about how far gratitude and humility will take you in our business and more importantly, in life.
Ironically, he plays a Las Vegas billionaire asshole on @BallersHBO, but don't let the artistic choice cloud your judgement when you see him in our show ;). #OnSet#LasVegas#Ballers#HBO#RockAndTheGoot
THIS SUMMER 🏾
Our HBO documentary is a passion project of mine and an important one.
This one of a kind Dade County boot camp prison is constantly in danger of being shut down due to budgetary cuts from the city.
That can't ever happen.
This incarceration facility changes young men's lives. Lives that are often overlooked. Not here. Not ever.
Change is real, but it only becomes real when it's earned.
Mark your calendars for NEXT MONDAY MARCH 27th on HBO and I'll show you the impact this boot camp has on these young men.
Break em down. Build em up. #RockAndAHardPlace#HBO#DadeCounty
The world record longest drive is 515 yards set in 1974.
My drive here measured an estimated 490 yards by the scientists holding the rulers. I failed math when I was a kid, but I think that's kinda close. One fun day I will break the world record.
Great day on the links shooting scenes for our @ballershbo.
Subsequently, I also hit two other great balls... when I stepped on a rake.
Ok, no more bullshit haha.. back to work.
Have a productive day. #OnSet#Ballers#LasVegas#TheGolfingBeast 🏾 Big shout out to my bud and the man himself @jordanspieth for my gear 🏾
Because the climate is right for a good ol' RATED R rescue can and beach balls shaped in the form of a penis and testicles joke.
This WEDNESDAY we bring you the EXCLUSIVE WORLD PREMIERE of our brand NEW @BaywatchMovie trailer. #BayDay#BeBaywatch #BAYWATCH MAY 26th * For the record, my one ball is bigger than @zacefron's.
It's hard for people to grasp when I tell them this but so many youth offenders charges as adults choose YEARS of prison time over a six month sentencing to this one of kind boot camp prison.
Word on the streets down in our Dade County is this is a place you don't want to f*ck with. To many offenders facing the judge, doing years of prison is easier and a badge of honor. But the ones that choose boot camp over prison are immediately on the path to change. They're completely broken down in every aspect - mentally, spiritually and physically. But they're also built back up to become better men. Changed men with one more opportunity to make something of themselves. It's up them.
That's why I said, "You're probably asking yourself what have I gotten myself into right now?". I was there at 2am when we brought them in for their first night in the camp. The look of "what the f*ck is happening" washed over all of their faces. I was also there six months later when they graduated, in front of their families and changed men.
In ONE WEEK on MARCH 27th join me on @hbo and I'll take you thru their journey.
Mark your calendars.. you won't want to miss this. Break em down. Build em up. #RockAndAHardPlace#DadeCountyBootcamp MARCH 27th. On HBO.
Flying to Vegas today for work and going over all my biz, then that feeling hits me...how wild and crazy I get when I go to Vegas... I give the word "bender" a new meaning jack.
Then I said F*ck it and threw business plans in the air while staring at the camera like a G.
Then I humbly picked my papers up because in actuality my version of "wild" in Vegas is going to work, the gym and eating dead cow w/ baked potatoes and tequila.
Happy Sunday everyone. Have a great productive week. And say f*ck it and throw your papers around every once in a while. It's fun.
What a team! That's a wrap. Another one down. Sometimes the greatest (and sweatiest) of things happen in the grittiest of places.
THANK YOU to our @underarmour partners flying in for this epic shoot in the #WestCoastIronParadise.
These guys and gals are true innovative rockstars. This is a small group of THOUSANDS of #UnderArmour employees worldwide who we're proud to work with.
We're building strongly as partners and creating killer gear for the people - which at the end of the day is what all this fun fuss is about anyway.
NEW #ProjectRock COLLECTION drops APRIL 5th. For the people.. 🏾🏾
From styling, concept to cool fashion. Big ass grin because we just wrapped THE photo shoot of all photo shoots.
We're all sworn to secrecy so I can't reveal who it's for, but I promise you it'll be a big, fun summer heater you guys'll dig.
Huge THANK YOU to the entire brilliant team putting in those long weekend work hours to create something iconic.
And a very special thank you for playing "What A Man" by Salt & Pepa when I walked on set. "A real smooth brother and never in a rush. He gives her goosebumps with every single touch" 🏾 #GettinDownOnTheWeekend#PhotoShootOffAllPhotoShoots#AmazingCrew#Grateful
Sitting on set tonight w/ my agent @bslater9 choppin' up our business and I look over and see these two young men sitting there, unassuming, quiet and wearing our #ProjectRock@underarmour shirts.
About 30min goes by so I walked over, introduced myself and shook hands.
The rest was history. Very cool moment. Always amazing to me how the struggles of our pasts (they asked me about when I was evicted as a teenager) can inspire and inform our future. Appreciate all the kind words, thanks for visiting our set and keep being awesome.
On the left is @mills68 and on the right is @rolomills and in the middle is the world's worst photobomber. #OnSet#FridayNights#Ballers#2KentuckyBoys#1BrownBomber
During our #Ballers lunch break today we shifted gears, dipped to a different set to complete my Q&As for #FateOfTheFurious.
Every time I do press for this franchise I gotta take it light and not too serious.
Here I'm asked by one of my fav interviewers, Lisa Blond, about the epic prison break out scene with me and Jason Statham from the movie.
Warm funny feeling everyone gets in their loins when I walk into a room. Including animals.
Gotta have fun. #IntenseHobbs#WarmLoins#FateOfTheFurious APRIL 14th.
Wrapped last night from set and this caught my attention and had to share it with ya. Kinda stuff that really matters. Guy's been a fan of mine since my senior year at Miami during my Canes football days. He's fighting hard and could use some strength sent his way.
Stay strong Adam! Appreciate you being such a big fan and we're all rooting for you and sending positive vibes and healing spirit. Keep fighting brother!
Big shout out to Crazy Train Radio station for the heartfelt letter you sent to my office. You're a good crew up there doing good things for people in need. Well done. #StayStrongAdam#SouthJerseyTough 🏾🏾
After training and before heading to set to shoot #Ballers, we're puttin' the final voice overs in for #BAYWATCH.
Big THANK YOU to our Paramount Studios crew for bringing this mobile trailer to me to knock these lines out. Tremendous team effort to get things done when I literally have every minute of the day accounted for.
And yup, peep my brand new Under Armour #RockDelta's on my feet that'll drop next month for you. Cold and hot at the same time.
Thanks again team. Git 'er done. #RunninAndGunnin#VOs#BAYWATCH
My homegirl @CharlizeAfrica called me and said, "Yo DJ", and I said "Yo Char Char".. and that's all we needed to say.
Charlize has a great campaign geared up with @omazeworld where YOU have the opportunity to join US at the #F8 premiere in NYC. You'll get the VIP treatment on your trip out, and a big ass hug on the red carpet from Charlize and myself. I mean think about that "Sexy sandwich". Are you in? Damn right you are. Hit the link in my bio or go to omaze.com/fast to enter NOW. It's all to support Charlize’s initiative CTAOP...a great cause! I'm happy to help out. See you in NYC!
Many of you know my deep luv and appreciation for music (I've successfully created and sang in keys that literally don't exist and somehow it still sounded good;). Our NEW @SevenBucksProd and @ShowOfForceFilm@CNNOrigSeries#SOUNDTRACKS has it all. We’re taking you on a very unique journey through our nation’s history using the songs that defined our turning-point moments.
Very high quality series that I'm proud to produce. #SongsThatDefinedHistory#SOUNDTRACKS Premieres THIS APRIL on @CNN
BREAKING: LIVE FROM NEW YORK... Honored to host the Season Finale of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE and join their illustrious, exclusive and highly sexy 5X Host Club!
I started my career 20yrs ago in NYC and from that vey first night, the city embraced me as a son. This SNL is special. I'm coming home to make history and have a KILLER show with the brilliant SNL cast and production team (I may or may not get slightly drunk 3 out of the 7 days I'm there). #SNL#SeasonFinale#MakingHistory#5xHostClub#NYC MAY 20th 🏾
I'm a loving and wise father who believes in "a fair shake". Even when you go to shake hands and your hand inadvertently slips upward to shake hands with the throat.
Big shout to our creative @sevenbucksds execs always on their toes cause they have no idea where I'll go with my slightly psychopathic answers during our infamous YouTube Q&A's. Always a blast. #ThatOneOfAKindFatherDaughterBond#ThatSpecialRockHandshake#ILoveYouSimone *Link in my bio
BREAKING: Grateful to share this big news. Universal Studios and @Legendary Pictures have declared JULY 13th 2018 SKYSCRAPER weekend. Massive scale of a movie we've been developing for almost two years and we start shooting this August - in CHINA.
Our script, written and to be directed by Rawson Thurber, focuses on the world's largest skyscraper - that's on fire. A towering inferno almost a mile into the sky and my wife and kids are trapped on the top floor.
My character is a disabled US War Vet and former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader. This character is inspired by the thousands of disabled US veterans and war heroes I've had the honor of shaking hands with over the years. This character is also an homage to the every day man and woman who, despite all odds, will dig deep and do everything possible to protect and save their family.
Research for this film has been a real education for me (and that's saying a lot considering my horrible freshman year GPA) from meeting with the world's top skyscraper architects to spending amazing time with our US combat and disabled vets.
Good thing I'm not afraid of heights. But at 4,000ft it's a different story.
Let's get to work. #CHINA#SevenBucksProds#FlynnPicturesCo#Zhao#SKYSCRAPER JULY 13th 2018
Part 4 of 5.
I embraced a philosophy years ago when it came to putting in the hard work to achieve any kind of success in any level.
It's either going to be the reason or the excuse. The reason to put in the work or the excuse not to.
These days I always look for the reason. That mind set keeps me grounded and grateful.
I also find the reason to crush pizza and brownies. #FindYourReason#NotExcuses#UnderArmour#RockGear#BeUnstoppable NEW gear drops APRIL 5th. (pizza and brownies not included)
Part 3 of 5.
This is the fun part of my workout where shit gets real and I see all the execs from @underarmour@sevenbucksprod@sevenbucksds and film crew just stare and get very quiet.
Good. Stay quiet.
I'm the nicest guy in the world, but not when I train. It's my time and when I tell people "Don't talk to me and kindly stay the f*ck outta my way", I mean it.
We're the hardest workers in the room. Break out the chains. #BeUnstoppable#UnderArmour#RockGear
NEW gear drops APRIL 5th.
Part 1 of 5 videos.
For our big NEW 2017 ROCK GEAR launch from UNDER ARMOUR - they asked if they could shoot two of my workouts as part of our marketing campaign.
I said no.
My workouts are my daily anchor and they're off limits to camera crews because I don't like distractions and it's not my style to film them.
They came back again and asked if I would reconsider but it was my entire team of execs and reps: @underarmour, @sevenbucksprod, @sevenbucksds, WME agents and The Garcia Companies. All said the fans would love it and it'll be great for our global campaign.
I agreed to the request. But had only request of my own.. Stay the f*ck outta my way.
Actually, I was nicer.
Kindly, stay the f*ck outta my way.
