On set. This dude. BALLERS. 
Gotta say I’ve come to really dig working with this brotha - our Ballers writer/producer/director, @RobWeiss. 
Cool POV, sets the smart edge and my kinda “go f*ck yourself” humor. 
He’s no doubt helped our show become HBO’s #1 rated half hour series for years now. Being #1 is a huge compliment I’m very proud of considering the high quality of programming the network delivers. 
Ball out. 4 life.

And for our @nbctitangames we’re gonna do our best to raise the bar and shine the spotlight on some very hard working men and women - who, most importantly are good quality human beings - and these days that matters more than ever. 
Keep the applications coming - JOIN ME , put in the hard work, because I want you to win and WIN BIG. Ps, before you “win big” you’re gonna get your ass kicked.. but you’ll come back stronger. 😉👊🏾

4 years ago today, we lost a good buddy and Bay Area legendary musician, Ponti Jessop aka Swampkat. 
Here’s a vid of me, Ponti and the boys just jammin’ at our backyard BBQ with good energy and vibes. 
He’s singing a very emotional song he wrote for his grandma when she passed away. He was gracious enough to teach it to me and a few years later I wound up singing this same song to my own grandma at her funeral. 
I’ve never seen this video until today (thank you brotha @samoanstuntman) and it’s such a humbling reminder that we gotta love each other as powerfully as we can, because tomorrow is never guaranteed to any of us. 
Rest in paradise and love uso and thank you for the memories.

KAIJU IS COMING!! In Japan they’re excited and bracing for our monster movie, #RAMPAGE. 
KAIJU meaning “strange beast” is a very popular genre of Japanese film that features gigantic monsters tearing up cities and each other - GODZILLA, KING KONG, MOTHRA etc. 
Cool to see audiences around the 🌎 getting hyped for our three gigantic mutated beasts. 
And for some reason they’re very angry and hungry.

For our big @underarmour commercial, they asked me if the back of my new hoodie should read “Wrestling out of Memphis” since that’s where I started my grind at 24yrs old. I said, no it should read, “Wrestling out of Hawaii” since my grind actually started when we were evicted off the island with no where to live when I was 14yrs old. 
I made a promise to myself that I’d do everything I could to make sure my family never got evicted again. And at 14 the only thing I knew I had control over was my effort, so I got my ass to the one place I could give that effort — the gym. 
I know it may seem fucked up psychologically, but every day I still train in the gym and operate my business like I’m getting evicted and my back’s up against the wall. 
Not ashamed of it, because it’s who I am. My DNA. 
You guys are gonna like this new Under Armour campaign. 
I’ve never won a Super Bowl or a Gold Medal. And I’m not a pro athlete. 
But I am the hardest worker in the room.

My “grateful” face as our lil’ underdog #JUMANJI is in the $1 billion box office conversation that is only reserved for superhero movies and big franchises. 
It’s unlikely we’ll reach that 1B mark but the fact that we’ve come this far is enough for me to extend, yet again my heartfelt gratitude and THANK YOU to all of you ‘round the world. 
Just wanted to deliver something big, fun and cool. Like me when I’m on my third shot of tequila.

I need TOTAL ISOLATION from any human contact before I shoot my hard core @underarmour commercial, as I gorge my muscles with blood while making that absurd inaudible sound we make while lifting...SIP..SIP.

I’ve been known to make some amazing drinks🍹but this Saturday night pre-workout drink might be a new star on my roster. 
Water, two scoops mandarin flavored Carnigen, two scoops GlycoJect, one cup of Colombian coffee and an Espresso thrown on top of that for the kick.. and a lil’ secret sauce. 
Tomorrow I shoot our new @underarmour commercial so I’m coming in hot and on point. 
And the “secret sauce” is floating in the middle of this drink - which is coagulated Dragon’s blood. 
Last training session before the big shoot. 
Here we go.
