Snoop Dogg Shares Incredible Artwork Of West Coast Royal Trio

For those who hold the West Coast dear to heart, Snoop Dogg‘s Instagram page remains a must-follow. Yet for every savage meme he shares comes a valuable dose hip-hop history, particularly centered around the Los Angeles scene. Seeing as he’s among the game’s most legendary icons, you can bet he’s assembled no shortage stories and memories to share. Not to mention his understanding the royal lineage, which he recently took to IG to celebrate through some incredible artwork.

Though the artist in question went sadly uncredited, their work is certainly stunning to behold. Depicting Ice Cube, 2Pac Shakur, and Snoop Dogg as kings yore, decked out in royal garb and looking appropriately regal, makes for a powerful image on many levels. First, seeing three the West’s most revered lyricists equated to kings. And second, the blending urban culture with that the royal monarchy and the juxtaposition it creates. All in all, whoever put those images to the canvas did a bang-up job, and Snoop did well to highlight the pieces.

Of the three Kings depicted, which one reigns supreme? Sound f below.

Dominos Is Paying $20 An Hour To Taste Test Their New Garlic Bread

Okay, I’m sorry if you clicked on this article and you don’t happen to live in Brisbane, Australia, but it’s still good to know that the pizza chain we all know and love is fering great wages for noble work. Domino’s has posted a job opening on LinkedIn for the position Chief Garlic Bread Taste Tester. Actually, the position isn’t exclusively available to garlic bread connoisseurs in Brisbane, because if you happen to live elsewhere in Australia, Domino’s is willing to pay for a hotel and a return domestic flight to acquire your services. It’s hard to imagine what kind pertinent skills or experience could be listed on someone’s CV that would make the company willing to incur those expenses. 

The job posting did in fact paint a picture the ideal candidate. It delineates that Domino’s is in search someone who “understands the perfect ‘crunch to stness’ ratio,” and “never met a carb they didn’t like.” They must also have “working taste buds” and have “burned their fingers at least once not being able to wait for the garlic bread to cool down.” Whoever was in charge writing this job description must have had a great time because they continued laying down jokes. They also specified that they want someone who “has a history reviewing other people’s food choices (solicited and/or unsolicited).”
The application process entails completing a survey and explaining in 200 words, or in a 30 second video, what makes you right for the job. Applications close October 7. I really hope we have some Australian readers that this message reaches because I would be honoured to play a part in someone being paid 30 Australian dollars an hour to eat garlic bread. 

Beyoncé & Jay-Z Reportedly Have Date Night At NYC Pizza Spot

Just like the rest us, it appears Jay Z & Beyonce love a good pizza every now and then. PageSix reports the power couple were spotted out together at one their favorite NYC pizza joints, Pasquale Jones.

Jay & Bey decided to hit up Pasquale Jones a few days ago when the restaurant brought in Tokyo chefs Ryu Yoshimura and Yuki Motokura Savoy Pizza (as seen on Netflix’s Ugly Delicious) for a 3-day special event. From September 18th to 21st, the chefs decided to do wild takes on Neapolitan-style pies. They partnered with local chefs Ryan Hardy and Tim Caspare for an exclusive menu classic and inventive styles, which Hov & Bey wanted to check out. Tickets to the restaurant costed $100, with a wine pairing being an extra $95. However it’s unlikely that Beyonce and Jay had to pay that fee, or maybe they did?

Bey and Jay weren’t the only ones checking out the 3-day pop up event. NBA star Kevin Love and girlfriend Kate Bock, who were “devouring Savoy’s famed tuna pizza,” were also seen at the restaurant. Can’t blame people for wanting some good pizza.

“Everybody talking about Hot Girl Summer, I’m lying, I had a Warm Girl Summer with a filter. I’m not doing that no more, I can’t. My stomach is having several seats on my lap. I can’t live my life like this,” she explained, TooFab. Tamar explained how it’s necessary to feel physically amazing to then feel amazing on a mental level. 

“I challenge myself to become my best self. Period,” she added. “I just got tired stuffing my stomach in my pants. Why we sitting around here fronting and lying about, ‘I feel amazing,’ you do not feel amazing after you eat burger, pizza, fries and three martinis like I like to eat — don’t judge me! — I’m just saying. I just feel like God has a lot in store for me … I want to be mentally ready for it.”

LeBron James Keeps Fans Guessing With Blaze Pizza "Ron" Character

LeBron James has been known for some antics in the past although unlike most people, his antics are usually positive and can bring a smile to people’s faces. Back in 2016, James linked up with Blaze Pizza where he created a character named “Ron” who worked behind the counter at one the chain’s locations. This sparked a ton confusion amongst customers who immediately recognized the three-time NBA champion upon walking into the restaurant.

Now, it appears as though Blaze Pizza and LeBron will be linking up again although it remains to be seen on what scale exactly. LeBron took to Facebook where he revealed the “Ron” character will be making a return. Blaze Pizza then went on Twitter to talk about the deal saying “Something BIG is coming.” There is no telling what that is but obviously, it will include lots and lots pizza.

LeBron has been leveling up significantly over the last few years as he has ventured into numerous different realms. For instance, James has acted in films and is about to star in Space Jam 2. James also has HBO show The Shop and this season he will be looking to lead the Los Angeles Lakers to an NBA championship.

Needless to say, LeBron has been thriving out here.

Shaq Surprises L.A. Residents With Papa John’s Pizzas: Watch

Earlier this year, NBA Hall Famer Shaquille O’Neal was named Papa John’s newest board member, as he became the board’s first African American director, as well as an investor in nine Papa John’s restaurants in Atlanta. Additionally, The Diesel now serves as an ambassador, as the pizza brand looks to repair their image.

As part the rebrand, Shaq recently threw on the Papa John’s delivery gear and handed out some pizzas throughout Los Angeles, including stops at a local temple, a community pool and an auto shop. Click here to watch the behind the scenes video.

According to CNN, the company will pay O’Neal $8.25 million over three years for the endorsement deal.

“Shaquille has an excellent entrepreneurial background, including as a restaurant franchise owner, and is a natural creative marketer,” said Jeff Smith, chairman Papa John’s board directors.

In an interview with Yahoo Finance, Shaq explained that he was a huge fan Papa John’s during his days at LSU, which made him want to get involved as the company looks to repair it’s image. 

“I was like, ‘I want to get into the franchise business.’ I used to be in the franchise business, I had 155 Five Guys, I sold those,” Shaq says. “And Papa John’s in college was big for me, because it was what I ordered. So when I met with former Papa John’s CEO] Steve Ritchie and Starboard Capital CEO] Jeff Smith, I said ‘I would like to be involved, if I can be on the board and if I can purchase a couple franchises.’”

Blac Chyna Demanded Pizza, Got Into It With Fan At VMAs Before Leaving: Report

Blac Chyna’s evening at the VMAs went left, for not only her but for one her fans. According to Us Weekly, Blac Chyna threw a fit at the MTV VMAs before damn-near almost getting into it with a fan. Sources claim the model “was complaining and yelling” about pizza at a spike Italian lemonade concession stand because she was hungry. “I’m hungry. I’m starving. I’ve been starving all week, actually,” she allegedly said. However, she was apparently yelling that while eating chicken fingers.

Blac Chyna Demanded Pizza, Got Into It With Fan At VMAs Before Leaving: Report

Things got even worse shortly after. As you know, all the stars come out during the VMAs and it’s truly one the few moments their fans can actually see them in person. Blac Chyna, who was admitted hangry, was approached by a star-struck fan who was trying to get a picture. However, as seen during her trip to Six Flags, Blac Chyna isn’t afraid to throw down. Thankfully, the argument seemed to stay in a verbal space. 

“At the same time, an overzealous fan who was trying to get a picture with Chyna came back to bother her,” the eyewitness said. “The situation escalated quickly into a fight, as Chyna didn’t want to take the picture. Chyna and the fan were yelling at each other.”

After the whole incident went down, Blac Chyna decided she’d be better f heading home. 

Michael Gandolfini Had Never Seen "The Sopranos" Before Auditioning For Prequel

It’s been long announced that Michael Gandolfini, son the late, great James Gandolfini is set to continue the family business portraying Tony Soprano; however, it was not until a recent interview with Esquire, that Michael Gandolfini mentioned having never seen The Sopranos before auditioning for the role. 

Of the time his father spent filming the series, Michael said, “I was just a kid when he was making it. I would go to the set and ask him what it was about, and he’d say, ‘Oh, it’s about this guy who’s in the Mob and kind goes to therapy,’” Having to rewatch the series to prepare for the upcoming role was a challenge. Michael had to face his father again, “I think what made it so hard was I had to do it alone. I was just sitting alone in my dark apartment, watching my dad all the time. I started having crazy dreams. I had one where I auditioned for David and I looked down at my hands, and they were my dad’s hands.”

Michael mentioned one moment in particular that hit home rewatching the show, “One that crushed me was when he yells at A. J., and he gets a pizza to apologize, and he sits by his son’s bed and says, ‘I couldn’t ask for a better son.’ I just knew he was talking to me in that scene.” 

You’ll be able to watch The Many Saints Newark on Septemeber 25th, 2020.

Rex Ryan References His Foot Fetish On Live TV And Gets Epic Reaction

New York Jets fans remember Rex Ryan as one the most entertaining coaches and figured in team history. His antics on the sidelines were always hilarious and when it came to his press conferences, he knew how to be entertaining. Ryan has been bringing his analysis to ESPN recently and as you can imagine, his takes are as hot as the sauce on a freshly-baked pizza. Today on ESPN’s Get Up!, Ryan was close to venturing into NSFW territory as he made reference to perhaps one the most egregious sagas in his tenure as Jets head coach. 

During a segment about a football player who had his toenails removed, co-host Sam Ponder expressed her disgust with feet and how the story could sicken those eating breakfast while watching the show. Of course, Ryan had to slide in with a joke, saying “Well, let’s not talk about feet,” all while raising his eyebrow. If you’re not in on the joke, Ryan was outed for having a foot fetish a while back and it was a source ridicule for the former head coach.

As you can imagine, the whole set burst into a parade laughter, while Ponder almost walked f the set in a fit giggles. Ryan knew his joke was hilarious and sat there with a smirk on his face as the viewers processed what they just heard.

At least Ryan can still laugh at himself after all these years.

David W. Gibbs, president, chief operating ficer and chief financial ficer for Yum! Brand that also owns KFC and Taco Bell, confirmed the news to Food Business News that as many as 500 stores will be shutting down in an effort to increase carry-outs and deliveries. “We are leaning in to accelerate the transition our Pizza Hut U.S. asset base to truly modern delivery/carryout assets,” Gibbs said. “This will ultimately strengthen the Pizza Hut business in the U.S. and set it up for a faster long-term growth.”

In America, 6,100 Pizza Hut restaurants fer dine-in while another 1,350 are strictly for carry-outs and deliveries. 

“During this transition, we expect a temporary deceleration in the pace new unit development for the Pizza Hut division as continued healthy international unit growth will be partially fset by a short-term decline in the absolute number U.S. units,” he explained. “As a result, our U.S. store count could drop to as low as 7,000 locations over the next 24 months, primarily driven by closures underperforming dine-in restaurants before rebounding to current levels and above in the future.”

Investor Who Splurged $800 Million in Bitcoin "On Two Pizzas" Opens Up On Live TV

Anderson Cooper was all ears last night for his interview with the dooood that dropped the equivalent $800 million in bitcoin on two Papa John’s pizzas back in 2010. The ficial transcript reads like this: Laszlo Hanyecz unknowingly spent 10,000 BTC. on the pizzas in what would appear to be a mindless transaction to the uninformed.  Hanyecz spoke at length about his decision during last night’s Bitcoin special on 60 Minutes.

Had he not held a little longer, and perhaps believed in his investment to some degree, those 10,000 BTC would have risen to $800 million in value in the not so distant future. In his defense, the lot he spent on the two pizzas was virtually worthless at the time, evidently so – about as much as two pizzas will run you in 2019, give or take a 5-note or two.

Unbeknownst to host Anderson Cooper, whose knowledge cryptocurrency is admittedly sparse, the exchange rate in 2010 wasn’t quite as forceful, or volatile as it is today. “That’s $800 million. You spent about $800 million on pizza?” Cooper asked his guest, as a person would with his limited insight into the nuances Bitcoin trading and mining. In response, Hanyecz, an early investor in the tech world, told his host that for the sake his sanity, and general well-being, he tries not to dwell on the “what ifs” his Papa John’s purchase.

In an earlier print interview with the Coin Telegraph, Laszlo Hanyecz even admitted that he didn’t regret his purchase, in light the fact, the transaction was in itself a pioneering step in the right direction. 

“I don’t regret it. I think that it’s great that I got to be part the early history Bitcoin in that way, and people know about the pizza and it’s an interesting story because everybody can kind relate to that and be like] – ‘Oh my God, you spent all that money,” he said quite frankly. “I was also kind giving people tech support on the forums and I ported Bitcoin to MacOS, and you know, some other things – fix bugs and whatnot, and I’ve always kind just wanted people to use Bitcoin and buying the pizza was one way to do that.”
