Shaquille Rashaun O'Neal (born March 6, 1972) is an American sports analyst and retired basketball player. He is best known for his 19 seasons in the NBA, having won 4 NBA titles, as well as the 1992–93 Rookie of the Year award, the 1999–2000 MVP award, 15 All-Star selections, 3 All-Star game MVP awards, 3 NBA Finals MVP awards, 2 NBA scoring titles, 14 All-NBA team selections and 3 NBA All-Defensive Team selections.
While he is best known for his skills on the court, not many people are aware that Shaq was kicking dope rhymes for much of the ‘90s. He released 4 full-length albums, with his debut Shaq Diesel going platinum and his sophomore album Shaq-Fu: Da Return going gold. His fifth album Shaquille O'Neal Presents His Superfriends, Vol. 1 was scheduled for release in 2001, but was ultimately shelved after much delay.
