The hype started after Floyd Mayweather posted the album cover on Instagram earlier this month and captioned it “[Goat emoji] #21.” That led everyone to believe the album was dropping at midnight on September 21. But when midnight came and went … fans were left scratching their heads, especially after Floyd deleted the post. James Harden followed suit with “#13” and also deleted it.
Making matters even more confusing — Michael Vick and Kobe Bryant on Friday posted the same album cover on IG but captioned it “#7” and “#8,” respectively. In retrospect, they were just posting the cover along with their jersey numbers. Wayne’s daughter, Reginae, also posted the album cover on IG but her caption simply had “#C5.”
