Look: “Yo, it’s on fire man”


Former NBA and Los Angeles Lakers superstar Shaquille O’Neal received praise for his verse by music mogul Steve Aoki. The DJ took to Twitter to post a video of him enjoying Shaq’s music.

Steve Aoki, who is a record producer, music programmer and record director, was excited about the work Shaquille O’Neal did. When someone of Aoki’s stature appreciates your work, then you know the music is good.

Shaquille O’Neal is set to release a new song titled “Welcome to the Playhouse” with Steve Aoki this Friday as Shaq continues to work on his musical skills. The song will likely be about Steve Aoki’s mansion, located in Las Vegas and filled with everything you could possibly want in a mansion.

Shaquille O’Neal has always had interests outside of the basketball court and has pursued many such endeavors in her life. Whether playing or making music, Shaq has always been a box office draw and will continue to draw his fans and others in everything he does next.

Shaq started his music career in 1993 when he started composing rap music. His talents as a rapper were the subject of immense criticism early in his musical career. However, Shaq has released five albums and one compilation, which basically contains all of the unreleased tracks from different albums. “Shaq Diesel,” which was the name of his debut rap album, received platinum certification.

For his film Kazaam, Shaq contributed to three tracks of the film and also appeared in numerous music videos. One of his most popular appearances was with the great Michael Jackson on the album HIStory, where Shaq was featured as a guest rapper in the song 2 Bad. Shaq also appeared in the music video for Aaron Carter’s song “That’s how I Beat Shaq” and also contributed to this hit single.

Along with his music, Shaq is also an avid DJ who has conducted shows around the world and can often be seen at music festivals having fun. Under the name DJ Diesel, Shaq started DJing in the 1980s, long before his NBA career took off.

Along with all of this, Shaq also shot on the big screen directing movies and a few reality shows which garnered over a million views per episode. But all of this wouldn’t have been possible without his exploits on the field and the success he enjoyed as an NBA player which culminated with four rings where he first made a name for himself.
