Shark Tank‘s flyest Shark and FUBU CEO, Daymond John, just revealed that he’s been battling thyroid cancer for the last year. “I had an extensive physical and they discovered there was a nodule on my thyroid,” he told Robin Roberts on Good Morning America. “They removed it and it was stage II cancer on my thyroid.”


Raymond, 48, started the FUBU clothing line back in the early ’90s, transforming the fashion industry, and is a main investor of the Emmy-winning ABC show Shark Tank. Apparently, nothing slows him down — not even fighting cancer.

“I was out partying and dancing two days later, not that I should’ve.” John said during his GMA interview.

So why did he finally want to share the news with the world? “I wanted to share this information with people because what would I have went through if I decided to just stick my head in the sand and go, ‘You know what? I’m not going to check into stuff.’ I would’ve really had some big, big problems.”

Daymond has been such an inspiration to budding entrepreneurs worldwide and how he’s inspiring us to stay on top of our health!

Could There Be A “Black Panther” and “Luke Cage” Crossover In The Works?



With all the hype over Black Panther (and it breaking box office records) fans are craving more of the Marvel superhero and crafting ways to intertwine him across the MCU. One theory is to have T’Challa and Luke Cage on screen together for an epic crossover episode during Cage’s sophomore season on Netflix.

The idea isn’t farfetched to Luke Cage star Simone Missick.

“I would love that,” Missick who plays Misty Knight told HipHollywood. “I mean doesn’t Black Panther come to New York, Misty Knight could travel to Wakanda. Maybe she takes a vacation and winds up in Wakanda.”

But while Missick was only speaking hypothetically, she said LC showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker and BP director Ryan Coogler are good pals so it’s not out of the question. “They already know each other. Cheo is working on Creed 2 writing the script and that was Ryan’s movie, so that would be awesome.”

Meanwhile when asked about a Black Panther and Luke Cage meeting on screen, Coker was enthusiastic. “I would love that, I really would!,” he told “I mean, because it would be, like, OK. T’Challa could definitely get on Pop’s free haircut list.”

In an interview with BET, Coogler was asked about three MCU characters coming together – Blade, T’Challa, and Luke Cage.

“I don’t control that stuff. I know that stuff’s all complicated. I wish Kevin [Feige] was here to see if you could talk to him, because he knows more about it. But I think it would be awesome. I loved those characters. [Blade] paved the way for what we’re doing now…And what Cheo [Hodari Coker] is doing with Netflix is just incredible, putting African-American culture on the screen like that and seeing people react to it that aren’t from that culture…the same way they react to a black basketball player or a black musician. It works for film, too. It’s universal.”
