You were mistaken if you though that Shaquille O’Neal would only be considering the NBA throughout this thrilling postseason.
O Neal will instead turn back to music, another one of his great passions.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, O Neal will release King Talk, a new rap song, on May 2 in honor of the NBA playoffs.
Shaquille O Neal Returns to Rap With New Song in Celebration of NBA Playoffs (Exclusive) April 28, 2023
The song is a collaboration with rapper Blackway and producer Koko, as O Neal has previously hinted on his social media sites.
O Neal is one of the most well-known television personalities in the world today, particularly for his in-depth knowledge of the NBA.
This is due to the fact that he has established himself as one of the finest big men in league history.
Unbelievably, he had a very successful musical career in the 1990s.
What’s Up Doc? (Can We Rock), one of the gold-selling singles from his 1993 debut album Shaq Diesel, and (I Know I Got) Skillz are only two examples.
Both of those songs achieved chart success on the Billboard Hot 100.
Shaq Fu: Da Return, O Neal’s second album, was released in 1994 and achieved gold status as a result of his collaborations with RZA, Redman, Method Man, and others.
In the late 1990s and early 2000s, he recorded two additional albums, but he hasn’t had any since.
He still has a passion for music, and he has even played under the name DJ Diesel.
Over the years, DJ Diesel has entertained thousands of people with his electronic dance music performances.
O Neal’s day job is, of course, commentating the NBA on TNT and running a podcast.
Will King Talk enter the next stage of his career as a rapper?
