Shaq is on top of his game!
Shaquille O’Neal aka Shaq aka DJ Diesel just recently unleashed a collaboration with NGHTMRE and Lil Jon, “Bang.” He’s known to land huge gigs, like last year at Lost Lands. Plus, he throws down at his own star-studded “Shaq’s Fun House” parties on the regular.
In a new interview with Page Six, he opens up about his music career. “Most people don’t know it, but my [first] rap album, ‘Shaq Diesel,’ actually went platinum,” he explains.
As for his current production, it’s a work in progress. “I have been spending a lot more time in the studio and just love to mess around making music,” he reveals to Page Six. “I am still learning a lot, but it’s always a good time.”
He compares DJing to playing hoops. “When I am up on stage in front of 100,000 people at a festival, it’s game 7. The energy is just wild and I get competitive. I need to throw down the best set possible.”
Shaq is holding himself to a high standard — he wants to get in studio with some of the best in the game. “I really look up to Diplo and Skrillex,” he says. “I’m working on some music with Diplo at the moment and would love to get in the studio with him and Skrillex soon.”
Right now, it’s good to be Shaq. No ceilings for this guy.
