o   The actor just made some serious coin.

o   Mint Mobile has been acquired by T-Mobile in a deal valued at up to $1.35 billion and he is a minority owner.

o   He said in a statement, “Mint Mobile is the best deal in wireless and today’s news only enhances our ability to deliver for our customers. We are so happy T-Mobile beat out an aggressive last-minute bid from my mom Tammy Reynolds as we believe the excellence of their 5G network will provide a better strategic fit than my mom’s slightly-above-average mahjong skills.


o   He is getting set to release his new song called “Eyes Closed.”

o   Yesterday he posted a photo of himself drinking at a bar by himself writing “This song is about losing someone, feeling like every time you go out and you expect to just bump into them, and every thing just reminds you of them and things you did together…You sorta have to take yourself out of reality sometimes to numb the pain of loss, but certain things just bring you right back into it.”

o   He mentioned his friend Jamal Edwards who died of cardiac arrest last year at the age of 31.

o   The single drops March 24th and his new album – (Subtract) comes out on May 5th,


o   Free Cone Day is back!

o   The event has happened for over 30 years, when Dairy Queen gives back to their most loyal customers.

o   They also partner with local charities and organizations to raise money and awareness.

o   The event always happens on the first day of spring so mark your calendars! Free Cone Day will be on Monday, March 20th.

o   The promo will run all day but customers will be limited to one free small cone per person while supplies last.
