Luv these girls - proud of em for kicking off 2017 w/ positive energy, strong and empowered. #Ohana #5H #KillinTheGame [email protected]@allybrookeofficial @dinahjane97 @normanikordei
Mornin' raise of the 'brow from my new (yet still dirty) West Coast Iron Paradise.
We're doin' that 4am anchor thing again to close out the week strong.
Shooting one big final additional scene for Hobbs and FAST & FURIOUS today. Bad ass Hobbs scene, so it'll be fun.
I'll wrap that out this afternoon then switch gears, energy, tempo and definitely wardrobe;), to shoot BALLERS tonight.
It's kinda crazy but in order for me to operate at a highly efficient/effective level, I need that 4am wake up to train like an beast. It's one of my anchors. Even at this "what the f*ck are you thinking at this stupid hour of 4am".
Buuuuut remember it's the fun crazy ones that dent the universe.
Find your anchor. Get crazy. Dent it.

Heard this quote when I was 15yrs old. For whatever reason it just clicked and made sense to me. I told myself then if I ever became "famous" one day, I'd always try and do my best to live it. (then of course I had to tell Kevin Hart to "f*ck off";).
Look at this band of brotherly trouble. The man who's produced some of the greatest movies ever made, Brian Grazer. Chairman & CEO of Warner Bros, Kevin Tsujihara. The greatest comedic actor of all time, Eddie Murphy. Some big, brown, bald tattooed man who photobomb, and the man of the hour himself, Mr. Forrest Gump, Brett Ratner. You're lucky I only told the Panerai story, you crazy bastard. We love you buddy and congratulations. Very proud of you for this historic Hollywood achievement. #HollywoodWalkOfFame #RatPac #Jan19
"For the people!" You work hard and hope you get lucky enough to make stuff people really dig and connect with. Because at the end of the day, that's the most important thing that always drives me... our connection. THANK YOU for voting me top spot in this category TWO YEARS IN A ROW!
Grateful. Keep ballin'.

NEW SEASON #BALLERS #HBO THIS JULY 🔥🐐
This one felt good. Very good. 🤙🏾 Our @Ford partners asked me to unveil the never seen before, brand new 2018 FORD MUSTANG to the world. As their Ambassador, I'm happy to do.
With a twist.
Myself and Ford compiled a big list of US veterans and from that list, I chose Army combat vet & Purple Heart recipient, Marlene Rodriguez to surprise and give it away to her.
It was such a cool moment that all of us in the room will never forget.
When Marlene, stopped and just looked at me and asked "Why?", well that's when I may or may not have gotten a lil' emotional with my answer - in a bad ass manly way of course.
Why? Because of the boundless gratitude and respect I have for you, Marlene and all our men and women who've served our country. Just a small way of myself and the good people of FORD of saying THANK YOU.
A HUGE thank you to FORD, our SEVEN BUCKS PRODUCTIONS and everyone who was involved in making this awesome surprise come true.
Finally, thank you FORD for making the new 2018 Mustang straight 🔥, completely customizable for the world to enjoy. Thanks also for making sure I fit in it as well.
Marlene, fits better. 😉. Enjoy your ride mama. Enjoy that Dodger game. You deserve it.

How we spend our Saturday's. Proud of this growth. Had to share with you.
This past Saturday we held our annual "Seven Bucks/Team Rock Summit" at our WME offices in Los Angeles. This highly strategic brain trust event was conceived by my manager and our Seven Bucks co-CEO and former Merrill Lynch VP @danygarciaco to bring together all our team members & execs to chop up and discuss best practices on how we continue to push forward and become an even more global force. Continue to build corporate enterprise.
All departments represented: Seven Bucks Prods, Seven Bucks Digital, WME partners, Droga5 Advertising, our LA and NY publicists (Viewpoint & Jonesworks) our brilliant attorneys (Harold Brown & Bianca Levin) our ace financial manager (Howard Altman) who I insist sits next to me - always gotta keep the $money close;). And our management holding company, The Garcia Companies and their bright, hard working ALL FEMALE executive team.
Can't tell you guys what a day like this means to me. All this started from $7 bucks in my pocket when I was 24yrs old. We had our first Seven Bucks Summit 3 years ago with only 8-10 people.
This past Saturday, we held our summit in WME's biggest conference room and as you see, the joint was "sold out and standing room only". Growth like a rocket.
Very proud that we've become the most sought after enterprise in Hollywood. But like with any successful venture, it all comes down to the team you have around you. Surround yourself with hungry, creative and optimistic humans who bring brilliant ideas and committed to seeing your vision thru. All superstars in this room and one big, brown, bald tattooed man who drives his pick up truck and says "f*ck yeah and f*ck no" a lot. Grateful.
I'll leave you with my Seven Bucks philosophy which our entire team has engrained in their DNA, "We never want to just play in the game, we want to change the way the game is played". Now go out there, put in the hard work and create your own hungry, brilliant team. I look forward to hearing about your "Team Summit" one day. Driving a pick up and saying f*ck yeah and f*ck no is optional.

My family, @saronasnukawwe gave me this amazing pic she took of her dad only a few short months ago. I immediately got choked up when I first saw this as she told me he sat there in this chair for hours and just watched his old wrestling promos and matches... in complete silence. Never said a word, just watched and reflected. Got choked up over the thought of what must've been going thru his mind in these hours watching himself... pride, joy, regret, satisfaction, pain, love. I wondered if at any point he sat here wishing he could do it all over again. Or, if he sat here completely at peace with his incredible, inspiring, wildly successful and at times extremely complicated life he's lived.
Well before there was WrestleManias, PPV's, big money guaranteed contracts, the internet or pro wrestling being coined, "sports entertainment", it's hard to articulate how "on fire" this man was in the early 80's and how much he impacted and electrified the wrestling business' bottom line. His wrestling promos had a quiet intensity that made you believe every word that came out of his mouth and you just knew that you had to run down to Madison Square Garden and buy your tickets because he was going to electrify that night. Another Garden sell out.
I grew up with this man as our families lived together in Hawaii and North Carolina. His children Jimmy Jr, Liana, Sarona and Ata all idolized him, as did I. Awesome memories. To the world, he was known as the iconic Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka but to me he was and will always be, simply.. uncle.
Rest in peace, uncle. Fly high bruddah..now you have real wings.
It's official. More sweat, more respect. WORLDWIDE🌏

Ballers are back. Great first week of production with these talented hard workin' mofos.
Huge shout out to all our ballers' fans who've made us the highest watched 30min show on HBO, two years in a row and counting.
@troyog @donovanwcarter @reallondonbrown @omarbensonmiller and my lil' brotha @jd_wash
We luv and appreciate our fans and all your support. This new season we take it all to the next level.

*and yeah, you have no idea how much of a real G @troyog is. Follow him and you'll see.
In 2016 we launched our digital arm of @sevenbucksprod aptly named @sevenbucksds and had a bad ass year. HUGE THANK YOU to our YouTube & digital communities for being the best partners around!
HUGE s/o to all you crazy millennials, plurals and Gen X'ers who are the dopest fans in the world.
We will continue to push the envelope, always keep the positive energy flowing and deliver more amazing and epic......stuff.
Just finished watching this movie, PATRIOTS DAY. Film about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Gutsy film to make, but yet an important one. Hardest thing for us to do is embrace hope, strength and optimism in the midst of heavy tragedy. Our emotions run high, but that's exactly what the city of Boston did in the wake of the bombing. And we rallied as a country behind them. Director Pete Berg and Mark Wahlberg are like my brothers. Family. Really proud of their work here and highly recommend watching this weekend. THANK YOU to the entire cast & production crew for making this powerful film. Helluva job. #BostonStrong
EXCLUSIVE: Bonus animation that I personally worked on for 18 months inside the animation studios at Disney with Academy Award winning animators. Enjoy this special clip called “Gone Fishing” from #MOANA, available on digital Feb. 21 & Blu-Ray March 7. *For the record, that stuff about me personally working as an animator for 18 months on this cool bonus footage may or may not be complete bullsh*t. 🐂
Enjoy the clip...
Bought my dad a Christmas gift and surprised him. He's had a hard life. This one felt good.
My dad, Rocky Johnson is a minimalist. Always has been. Never asks me for much and over the years his needs are always the barest. Crazy story, my dad's dad died when he was 13yrs old. That Christmas, my dad's mom had her new boyfriend over for Christmas dinner. Her boyfriend got drunk and pissed on the turkey. My dad went outside, got a shovel, drew a line in the snow and said if you cross that line I'll kill you. The drunk crossed it and my dad laid him out cold as a block of ice.
Cops were called. They told my dad's mom that when her boyfriend regains consciousness, he's gonna kill your son so one of them has got to go. In front of the entire family, my dad's mom looked at him and said get out. He was 13yrs old and now homeless. That f*cked up true story happened in Amherst, Nova Scotia, Canada in 1954. He needed the bare minimum then, just like does now.
Over the years, I've moved him into a big home, got him trucks to drive - which he'll literally drive into the ground until I get him something else. Hell, I'll get him anything he wants, but the SOB just won't ask;). Every Christmas, I always think about that story and my dad having every odd stacked against him at 13, but he fought thru it and still made something of himself. Makes me appreciate his struggle and hard work. Also, makes me appreciate the fun times he would beat my ass in the gym so bad when I was 13 and say "If you're gonna throw up, go outside.. and if you're gonna cry, then go home to your mother". I hated it then, but I embrace it now. Made a man outta me. Without pissing on my turkey. 😂👍🏾. Just a small way of saying thank you dad and Merry Christmas! #DwantaClaus🎅🏾
Spent three excellent days at FORD headquarters in Detroit.
As the ambassador, I wanted to spend time with multiple divisions within the company and the hard working brilliant teams who pour their blood and sweat into their work.
I'm standing deep underground inside an undisclosed FORD building (if I told you I would have to hunt you down on the 'gram and kill you;) where for years, this globally exclusive GT was engineered. Roughly 1,000 exist and if you're a car aficionado then you know how incredibly bad ass and one of kind this vehicle is.
Spent time here with the brilliant designers (the team was comprised of only a handful of designers from around the world) who engineered this car and I appreciate them taking me thru the entire process (from 1965) and inspiration behind it. Truly fascinating and what an education and new found respect I now have for the design & engineering process.
You're looking at the 2016 Le Mans WINNER that was built solely to compete and win that race. Goal accomplished.
You're also looking at 6'5, 260lbs of big, brown, bald, tattooed man who has 0% chance of fitting in this beauty.
But that's ok, the designers are building me a custom RAPTOR, because that's how the ambassador rolls.
More to come later. What an education. You car enthusiasts would've loved this! #BloodGutsAndBrilliance #Ambassador #Ford
The Iceman cometh. And don't fucketh around. #OnSet #FastAndFurious8 #OrangeAintTheNewBlack #HobbsTheIceman APRIL 2017.
My "how the f*ck am I gonna shoot my FORD commercial when they decide to bring out Frenchie puppies" face.
The punishment is death, when people play with my emotions like this and bring out my kryptonite aka puppies. This is bullshit.

Her reaction is priceless. Had a very special visitor waiting to meet me in my make up trailer tonight - her name is Hoku.
After meeting this awesome young lady, who happens to be a rockstar cheerleader for Kahuku High School here in Hawaii - I've officially become her biggest fan.. literally I am physically her biggest fan.
Great to meet you honey and your family and much mahalo for the gifts.
It's also so cool that you said we are dating now! 😉👍🏾 #ImOneLuckyGuy #Hoku #RR4L #OnSet #Jumanji #Hawaii #BestPartOfFame
Well you wonder why I always dress in black? Actually I don't but it's a bad ass John Cash lyric.
Wheels up. Heading to set. Let's work.
🔥Back to work. Great first week back of shooting our new season of @HBO's #BALLERS. Get ready for our best yet. Global ambition and flaws. Ball out.
#800lbSilverback🦍 #BALLERS THIS JULY
EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: #JUMANJI Our dope 90's vintage costumes will all make sense when our plot's revealed. Truuuuuust me😂👊🏾.
The journey continues..
"Moose Finbar" (Kevin Hart).
"Ruby Roundhouse" (Karen Gillan).
"Professor Shelly Oberon" (Jack Black).
"Dr. Smolder Bravestone" 'cause well.. he smolders.
Hard workin' and FUN first day of shooting in the jungle with this talented and crazy motley crew. Jack is brilliant, Karen is bad assery, Kevin is sharply hilarious and I smell good.
Extremely hard trying to keep a straight face in these scenes. Too funny. We're makin' a good one. More to come.. #JUMANJI #WishFulfillment #TheGameThatPlaysYou
Officially welcoming my guy @NickJonas to #Jumanji. Great dude, great positive energy and very talented. He's gonna kill this role like I kill things with my bare hands.
The jungle awaits. The adventure continues. And ironically the one who sings the most on set is Jack Black 😂. #OnLocation #Hawaii #WelcomeToTheFamilyNick #Jumanji 🔥
We run in slo motion to bad ass theme music, we're sweaty, but not too sweaty and we're known worldwide as "the Avengers of the beach".. and we're also highly f*cking dysfunctional.
Our fun little rated R beach movie has become one of the most anticipated films of 2017... all thanks to exclusive images like this from our friends at @entertainmentweekly of me with my shirt OFF and @zacefron with his shirt ON. This guy Zac, has the nerve to diet and works his ass off for months for this role and shows up on set completely jacked, with his perfectly chiseled face, being a genuinely wonderful human and his 36 pack abs. Bullshit. Fuck that guy. Not on my sets.
Ok, he's my brother, one of my best buds and I luv the guy but keep that between us. #My3AndAHalfPackAbs #VersusZacs36PackAbs #FuckItJustGiveMeBrowniesAndTequila #BAYWATCH THIS SUMMER. MEMORIAL DAY
We're doing that manly thing again today that involves focus, sweat, intensity, well timed artistic cussing and callouses.
Middle finger salute of gratitude to my boy @gunnarfitness for bringing in my 145lb & 150lb dumbbells for me to throw around... also, affectionately known as my Kevin Harts. #HumbleHungry #HardestWorkersInTheRoom 🦍⚓️
