When I come back home to my farm in Virginia to recharge, I have to go to a public gym to train (I'm building a gym on my property) and try to get in and out as fast as possible without drawing a crowd.
While working out, I tell people no pictures I just want to train and a handshake will have to do. Then as I'm pulling out of the parking lot I see all these women briskly walking to my truck with eyes wide... I shift gears to drive off and see them in the rearview waving at me saying "come back".. I start loudly cussing at myself "SUM BITCH" in the truck because I know what's next..I can't ever drive away when I see women or kids.
I back up. She starts crying and starts singing my favorite Taylor Swift song. I make a joke about the great moonshine we have in Virginia. We take selfies. They share really amazing thoughts with me about why they're big fans and I drive away feeling like the luckiest SOB on the planet to meet such amazing fans. This kinda stuff will always be the best part of fame.
Tears and all. #ParkingLotLuv#IAlmostGotAway#GreatestFansInTheWorld#OneBigBrownBaldLuckySOB

Just wrapped #ballers and have one week before I start shooting #Rampage, so I had to scoop my lovely ladies up and got away to my farm to recharge, recalibrate and reset.
We have an excellent program on our farm (created by my bud and equestrian Olympic athlete Will Coleman) that trains thoroughbreds in Eventing (dressage, stadium jumping and cross country). Every time we come home to Virginia, we always have a whole new gang of some of the best conditioned, beautiful (and bad ass;) horses on the planet.
Here Jasper and Zipp are clearly attracted to my alpha musk.. which translates to I haven't showered in 12hrs since I worked out at 4am. #AFewOlCountryBoys#Recharge#ThoroughbredBonding#AlphaMusk#MyFarm
Taking Disney's #JungleCruise R&D (research & development) to a whole new level. @sevenbucksprod's had a great productive day with Disney's President of Production, Sean Bailey and Disney's Head Imagineer, Bob Weiss and his brilliant team of Imagineers.
To give you guys context, these meetings we're having take place in buildings that we drive by a 1000 times in Burbank and never know what's in them. No big "DISNEY" signs or a big Mickey Mouse face. Just the most plain looking super nondescript buildings on the block. But behind these walls is where brilliance is born..
The Disney rides, movies, technology, theme parks and resorts, cool new innovative characters (remember, Disney also owns MARVEL).. it all gets creatively imagined behind these walls. #JungleCruise was the extraordinary concept of visionary, Walt Disney.
Our meeting (first of many) was about how do we create the greatest adventure Jungle Cruise EXPERIENCE on the big screen and in the theme parks around the world that you'll never forget.
Ideas were flowing. This is gonna be fun. #DisneyImagineers#SevenBucksProds#Creativity#WereGonnaNeedABiggerBoat#JungleCruise
I rarely use the word, "Perfect" (except when describing my kissing when I drink tequila on weekends), but every superhero movie, needs a SUPER villain and @priyankachopra is PERFECT as our lead baddie in #BAYWATCH.
Bad ass, intelligent, sexy, sophisticated, charming, evil and great tequila drinker. #Perfect#BAYWATCH MAY 25th
This one's special. Join me TONIGHT at 10pm on CNN. Because of our respect/love for music, our @sevenbucksprods goal was to create a cool and comprehensive and very high quality documentary series that really got in there and provoked our thoughts and examined music's role in our country's most defining times.
Tonight we examine Dr. Martin Luther King & the Civil Rights Movement and the iconic who inspired a generation with their songs. And how a defining movement, also inspired the artists to write their historic anthems.
On a personal note, after all these years, it's an honor to include my all time fav artist, Sam Cooke in something I produced. #AChangeIsGonnaCome#Soul#CivilRights#Soundtracks 10pm on @cnn TONIGHT.
There are mornings in life where there are no words.. this is not one of those mornings.
Jazzy, let daddy tell you his goals.
By 5, you'll be looking people in the eye when you firmly shake their hand.
By 8, you'll know how to fish, drive daddy's pick up truck and do cardio.
And by 10, you'll be able to directly say to people, "Great job, I like it a lot, but let's see how we can make it better". Helluva plan right sweetheart?
Buh! *she points to the ground at a bug.
** Update. NYC!! The surprise concert is over and as always, Melissa killed it. We feature Melissa in our new @sevenbucksprod historical music documentary series #SOUNDTRACKS on CNN. So many iconic artists participated in our 8 part series and not only is Melissa a rock icon and bad ass but she helped usher in a defining movement in our country with her anthemic music. She's a legend. #Etheridge#Icon#SOUNDTRACKS#SevenBucksProds#ShowOfForceFilms#CNN
THIS THURSDAY 10pm.
Ladies and gentlemen that's an official wrap on SEASON 3 of #Ballers.
THANK YOU to our outstanding and dedicated crew, producers, directors and on set teams for puttin' in the daily hard work to deliver a great show.
THANK YOU to our talented and hard ballin' cast of actors for being the best dance partners.
THANK YOU to our fans for the luv, support and making our show HBO's highest rated comedy in years.
And a special thank you to Rob Corddry's tongue as he was kissing my cheek. I don't play that shit. Not sober at least.
Luv and appreciate this entire crew and I'm a grateful man to walk the line with every one of em. #ThatsAWrap#Season3#HBO#Ballers
So I walk into the room and the first thing Anderson says is, "Wow you've really let yourself go" and I say, "Yeah I just don't give a f*ck anymore". Then we laugh like teenage boys and delve into nice dialogue about my new historical documentary music series on CNN called #SOUNDTRACKS. Had a lot of fun. Thanks for the gym tips and thank you for the kind words my friend. Respect is mutual. 🤙🏾 #Repost@andersoncooper ・・・
So this happened. @therock couldn't be a nicer, more down to earth guy. got to talk with him about his upcoming music series called #Soundtracks. will be on @CNN thursday at 10pm. Also gave him a gym recommendation (not that he needed it.)
If you love and respect music as much as I do (and I know you do), this will be one of, if not the most comprehensive and powerful music documentary series you've ever seen.
It's truly been an honor and education to produce this series.
Join our musical journey into the ICONIC SONGS THAT DEFINED OUR HISTORY. #SOUNDTRACKS#8PartSeries THIS THURSDAY 10pm on @CNN@cnnorigseries.
Biggest global box office opening of all time and the most fun, get the job done, shit talkin' character I've ever played. THANK YOU.
I've learned over the years that anytime success comes along I always pause and ask the critical questions. What's the next move? What's the best move? What's the smart move that gives the people what they want?
Then my mind drifts to what size off road tires I should put on my next pick up truck. You know, the important stuff.
Grateful and thrilled you guys luv the movie! Now the internal dialogue and business strategy begins. #FateOfTheFurious#BiggestOpeningOfAllTime#HobbsTheBeast#StillNeedTheRightTiresForMyRaptor 🤙🏾
The first time Jasmine's favorite character, Pikachu came to visit her months ago she was only crawling.
For Easter Sunday @laurenhashianofficial and I thought, Pikachu should make a special visit once again. Well, Pikachu didn't account for the fact that now Jazzy RUNS and for 2hrs straight she wants to play her new favorite game, "I run away and you chase me Pikachu. And you're not allowed to take a break until I go night night". At the end of the vid you can hear her yell, "Peekyu" because she can't say, Pikachu.
I'm tired, today's my only day off, it's 118 degrees in this costume and Hobbs keep trying to p*ss on my leg.
And I luv every minute of it. Bring it on. It's what daddy's do.
Happy Easter to you guys and enjoy your families. #Rockachu#DaddyPuttinInWork#TheGameThatNeverEnds#PikachuLooksBloated
Queen out here lettin' the world know. I would try and lay some bars down here, but my rap game f'n sucks. Luv u back. Keep doin' it strong. #Respect 🏾 #Repost@nickiminaj ・・・ @jetluxlife#jetLuxLife ~ #FlashbackFriday ~ I call this Roc[K] Dwayne. Johnson, stop the playin. I left my shades in Atlanta so I told my pilot to stop the plane. He bust a U in da air. They say they doin it. Where?
Takin' a quick break between our Saturday sweat sets.
When you're evil, you gotta commit to the laugh
When you see this huge green screen scene in #Ballers this summer, I would've just crashed my monster truck and me and the announcer will be standing in the middle of 30,000 fans in Las Vegas who go WILD when I announce I'm bringing an NFL team to Vegas.
Before the scene, our prop master @ottoprops44 who's in charge of all my props on set says ~ Hey DJ, I laid down pads and soft black blankets for you to throw your helmet on since the helmet is expensive, we don't want it to crack and we only have one for the whole shoot tonight.
Me ~ You got it brother Otto, I'll gently toss the helmet on the soft and safe black blankets.
Then I purposely throw the helmet on the ground, it cracks and we can't use it anymore.
Director yells, "Cut". The whole crew laughs, Otto cries and I continue to be the evil asshole always looking to have fun with the crew.
Shot our big campaign for the new season of HBO's #Ballers today.
Best thing about this image, besides the fact that I'm dressed like a pimp heading to the Player's Ball or the lead singer of a band that plays weddings, is my photographer @michaelmuller7 sees a better angle, immediately lays on the floor and without saying a word his assistant slides in with her leg so Michael can rest his head and easily get the shot.
Team work makes the dream work. "All the playas came from far and wide" some of you know that lyric. #PhotoShoot#NewSeason#Ballers 🏾
"I wade through my nightdreams
Backstroke through my daymares"
I've driven my share of Monster Trucks and I have one motto, ain't no shame in crashing, as long as you do it with style.
I've been waitin' to dance with this beast. Let's get it on. Aw shit this ain't gonna end well #OnSet#Ballers#11TimeWorldChampion#MaxD

Very cool, smart and in depth story by @buzzfeed's @scaachi.
Ah hell, I work hard, tell a good dirty joke and have some f*cked up calloused hands so it was a nice surprise to see the vote of "Populist Hero". Thanks Josue Evilla for the dope artwork.
Thanks again all. Let's get back to work. #Populist#AtLeastICleanUpWell
"And above all else, stay the f*ck outta my way" ~ Hobbs
As our movie opens worldwide, THANK YOU for always having FUN with this character and more importantly, letting him "wink" at you around every corner as he delivers the most bad ass and absurd lines, to let you know he's in on the joke too.
And huge "Fa'afetai tele" (thank you in Samoan) for making the character "Hobbs" the franchise's most popular.
Enjoy the movie, have fun and above all else... stay outta the man's way #F8#Hobbs 🏾
Talented, sexy, bad ass, funny and best of all.. NEVER taking themselves too serious.
Wait til you see my homegirls @alexannadaddario@ilfenator and @kellyrohrbach in action. "Not here.. *bounces boobs.. but here.. *motions to face" = f^cking classic. #BAYWATCH MAY 25
One of the most in depth, comprehensive and fascinating music series you've ever seen.
Every iconic artist wanted to participate and share their perspective because it's more than the music, but rather the heart and soul behind it and how it impacted our history's defining moments. And how our defining moments in history, inspired the heart and soul of their songs. Very cool stuff.
Mark your calendars for APRIL 20th. #8PartSeries#CNNOriginalSeries#SevenBucksProds#ShowOfForceFilms#SOUNDTRACKS
Say, "Ahhhh" you sexy muthaf*ckas.
HBO's highest rated comedy in years returns this summer for a NEW season.
Let's light it up and have some fun. @BallersHBO JULY 🏾 #BALLERS
Raising the fashion bar w/ a good bud. GQ Editor in Chief, Jim Nelson.
I shot my first GQ cover years ago when I first transitioned into Hollywood. Had no clue what I was doing in that shoot. How to pose, how to look, what to do. Do I blue steel, do I not blue steel, is blue steel even a real thing? WTF. Had no clue. Figured in that moment and moving forward the best thing I could always be was just be myself.
That was also the time that Jim Nelson first became Editor in Chief at GQ.
We were both very new in our respective roles, but hungry, focused and willing to put in the hard work to shake things up and blaze new trails in our businesses.
Now years later, Jim Nelson and GQ are the most powerful and influential names on the planet in the world of Men's Fashion.
And I'm just running around dropping F-bombs and thinkin' about what kind of tires to put on my next pick up truck.
Truly a pleasure and honor to collaborate once again with Jim Nelson and his brilliant fashion team at GQ.
Raise the bar. Have some fun. And just be you.
Coming soon... #GQ 🤙🏾
Amidst the frenzy, we must always find time to smile.
Plus I ain't out here trynna take a f*cked up pic that turns into a viral meme. . Appreciate all the fans who joined us in NYC for our big #FateOfTheFurious world premiere. You guys waited around a long time for the circus to arrive and as always, I appreciate and luv all of you. See ya down the road. 🤙🏾 #F8#WorldPremiereNYC#BigSmiles#NoMemes

.. (I think the lady to my right is snapping a pic of my bootaaaay)
Surprise! Once I committed to our Disney partners to make the movie based off the JUNGLE CRUISE ride, I wanted to dive head first into the research.
So I headed to Walt Disney World and surprised tourists by commandeering the JUNGLE CRUISE boat.
It was a GREAT day on the river. Learned a lot.. for example, it takes approximately 12.6 minutes for all the passengers to get over the shock of me jumping on the boat and thinking I'm a DJ look-a-like. One passenger even said, "Oh the real Rock is much smaller than this guy". I threw his ass off the boat.
Jokes aside (and yes, with me as the Cruise Skipper there will be an abundance of puns) this is such an amazing, fantastical and cool world to build out. Best part about this surprise research day was knowing how FUN of an experience we're gonna work hard to create for families around the world. That's the part that gets my excited the most.
The movie. The ride. The experience.
It's the cruise of a lifetime. And trust me, you'll want me as your Skipper. Just don't forget to bring the Skipper's beer.
Next step... we find our visionary director. #SurpriseAroundEveryCorner#ResearchDay#DisneyWorld#AllAboard#JungleCruise
I tried, but I could never write music that good. I always a decent ear for rhythm and a good eye for lyrics though.
Check this song out by one of my favs @CodyJinks. These lyrics spoke to me pretty quickly. And where the chorus goes tempo and rhythmically is pretty cool.
I'm a life long fan of traditional, hard core country (Paycheck, Willie, Haggard, Jones, Jamey Johnson, Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson etc) but even if you're not, I think you'll dig and appreciate it. "You never know who you're talking to, but always know who's watching you, keep your feet movin' straight down the line." #CodyJinks#SomewhereInTheMiddle#YoungMansBrain#OldMansHeart 🤙🏾
This one's for all my paparazzi buds.
Thanks for always rollin' with me to keep it fun and light on these red carpets.
I show up with my jacket and glasses on. Flashes start going crazy. Then I hear, "DJ take your glasses off" to which I respond, "I can't I got that thing" then we all start laughing because obviously that statement makes no f*cking sense.
Then I hear (from a woman photographer I know), "DJ take off your jacket and show your arms", to which I respond, "You ain't ready for these home wreckers" then I take my jacket off to most absurd catcalls that make us all laugh even more.
THEN I hear, "C'mon DJ take your shirt off and show your abs"... to which I say, "My abs? Who the f*ck do you think I am, Zac Effron with a 28pack ab stomach. I have one and a half abs. TWO TOPS". We all laugh. I leave the red carpet and no one is subjected to photographing my tum tum.
Red carpet paparazzi ain't no easy job. Sitting around waiting for hours for the circus to show up. Thanks for always having fun with me guys. See y'all down the road. 🤙🏾 #Catcalls#Paparazzi#TwoHomewreckers#OneTequilaAb#RedCarpet#F8#RadioCityMusicHall#NYC
What a stellar cast we've assembled to go on a RAMPAGE. My brotha JDM here knows a thing or two about wrecking evil shit.
Our massive (and very angry) monsters are being designed by the best in world, Weta Workshop (Lord of the Rings, Avatar etc). Total destruction is coming. Jeffery we're gonna need a bigger bat. Let's have some fun.. #RAMPAGE
Fantastic interview in NYC w/ @cnn's Anderson Cooper for our new @sevenbucksprod@cnnorigseries#SOUNDTRACKS
Great in depth chat about our show's powerful music and it's impact it's had on our country's most defining moments. For example, the powerful "Mississippi, Goddam" by Nina Simone helping to breathe even more life into our Civil Rights Movement. "You don't have to live next to me, just give me my equality". Our shows picking up a lot of high quality buzz which is great to see.
If you love music and how it's defined our history, mark your calendars because you'll love our series. #SevenBucksProds#ShowOfForceFilms#CNNOriginalSeries #SOUNDTRACKS APRIL 20th on CNN.
