Memes, New York, and New York Giants: Odell Beckham Jr. "Will Not Set Foot On A Field" Without A New Contract @balleralert Odell Beckham Jr. “Will Not Set Foot On A Field” Without A New Contract – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Odell Beckham Jr. is reportedly prepared to go the distance in his desire for a contract extension with the New York Giants. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last year, the wide receiver made it clear that he would not be holding out for an extension, as he believed it never really worked. But, this year, the baller seems to have had a change of heart, as NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport says Beckham “will not set foot on a field” until an extension is in place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Prior to Beckham’s season ending injury last season, the wide receiver was a beast on the field. With at least 90 receptions, 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns, Beckham was, and still is, an elite talent. But, when it comes to a new contract, John Mara said his star player is not “untouchable,” in regard to the possibility of a trade over a new deal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last season the team went just 3-13, but further details of Beckham's deal and possibility of an extension remain unclear.

From the massive, record-breaking success of ‘Black Panther’ to the many successful business ventures of our favorite Black entertainers, the culture is thriving and it’s beautiful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Thursday, Forbes released its annual list of the wealthiest hip-hop artists on the planet, and the top five entrants came as no surprise as it was very similar to last year’s list. However, there was a bit of a shift in the top two slots. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After catapulting his net worth from $810 million to $900 million through his Armand de Brignac champagne and D’Usse cognac, in addition to his of his nine-figure ownership stakes in Roc Nation and Tidal, Jay-Z has landed the top spot on this year’s list, dethroning business mogul, Diddy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, the Bad Boy CEO secured the No. 2 spot with the help of his interest in Ciroc and Revolt TV, increasing his network to $825 million. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In this year’s list, Dr. Dre held on to his No. 3 spot, but still increased his network form $740 million to $770 million. But, according to reports, Dre may be seeing an even bigger spike next year when he receives his Apple stock from his $3 billion buyout of Beats in 2014. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As the top three contenders for the wealthiest hip-hop acts on the planet, according to Forbes, the three Hip-hop moguls have also become the richest American musicians of any genre in history. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pulling up the rear of the Forbes Five list is none other than Eminem and Drake, who tied at an even $100 million apiece.

Do It Again, Martin, and Memes: Carl Anthony Payne Says He's All for a 'Martin' Reboot, Thinks It's Long Overdue @balleralert Carl Anthony Payne Says He’s All for a ‘Martin’ Reboot, Thinks It’s Long Overdue - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well, it may be safe to say that the possibility of a ‘Martin’ reboot is headed in the right direction… and everyone seems to be on board with it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Over the weekend, TMZ caught up with CarlAnthonyPayne—who portrayed the role of ‘Cole Brown’ in the original series, and when asked about the promising project, he actually gave some hopeful responses. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “People are talking. We’re all talking,” he said, hesitantly, walking out of Mastro’s. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although it did appear that Payne didn’t want to give “too much” information away, he didn’t exactly say “no” either. In fact, he said that he wouldn’t be opposed to the idea of bringing ‘Martin’ back at all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Absolutely. Why not? I think the people want it. I think it’s long overdue. We created magic in a bottle. You know? Why not do it again?” The 48-year-old told TMZ. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, many have wondered if the reboot would be available through a particular streaming service or a television network. According to Payne, he’s rooting for Netflix. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “You know what? I think [Netflix] would be a good home for it. There’s a lot of room to grow there. It would be smarter, better, and funnier.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As of now, the specifics are unknown. But, hopefully, we’ll know more soon-if it really happens. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rumors of a ‘Martin’ reboot have been swirling for quite some time now, but they recently resurfaced when MartinLawrence’s fiancée, Roberta Moradfar, let the cat out of the bag that Lawrence spilled the beans to her about it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That following week, Lawrence was photoed out with co-stars Tisha Campbell-Martin and Tichina Arnold, which sparked more speculation.

Bad, Comfortable, and Confidence: LEARN TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE Would you like to learn how to get comfortable with the uncomfortable? Read on!👇 ✔️Start. The first step is always the most uncomfortable. All you have to do is show up. The battle is half won if you just show up. I get it. It's uncomfortable to start something. ✔️Don't quit. You've decided to start. You're not seeing results. It's difficult. You want to quit. It's OK. Just keep pushing forward. You are not a P***y. ✔️Push yourself past your comfort zone. At some point, you are going to say to yourself, "I've never done this before" or "I don't know what I'm doing." We've all been there. Here's a trick: Don't say it out loud. Just pretend to be confident. Fake it till you make it. It's scary, but I promise you this: When it's over, you are going to say, "It wasn't as bad as I thought it was." Fear kills more dreams than failure ever will. ✔️Be around like-minded people. Create a support network. Talk about your experiences. The worse the experience it is to you, the better the story it is to everyone else. Soon, you will be seeking uncomfortable experiences to share with your friends. Be a good storyteller. ✔️Rinse. Repeat. There's an old Russian saying, povtorenie mat ucheniya, (I don’t even know Russian but I found the meaning on google haha) which means "repetition is the mother of learning." The more you perform the same activity, the more confident you become. Confidence is a tangible thing, it comes from practice and repetition. - uncomfortable comfortable success millionairementor
