Shaq Returns to the Rap Game, Disses Kobe
Published Jun 24, 2008Watch out Kobe, Shaq is back on he mic dropping lyrical bombs again. Taking pleasure in his ex-teammate's recent loss in the NBA finals, former Los Angeles Laker Shaquille O'Neal hopped up on the stage of a New York club Sunday (June 22) night and "freestyled" some verses that ended with the surprisingly catchy chorus of "Kobe, Tell Me How My Ass Tastes" - or so the participating crowd thought.
No stranger to the rap game, Shaq has released five albums, two soundtracks (Kazaam and Steel) and a "best of" compilation in his illustrious music career, the greatest of which - most people would argue - is the 1994 masterpiece, Shaq-Fu: Da Return, for its title alone.
Here are some other tasters displaying his rhyming prowess:
Believing he is Biggie Smalls incarnate: "I call myself BIG, because I live next to Diddy/Diddy, lives next to me, so in the hood dog I feel like B.I.G/And if Biggie was still here he would be right there..." Poking fun of the Lakers' loss: "You know how I be/Last week Kobe couldn't do without me..."
Addressing Kobe Bryant's statement to the police during his rape charges: "I'm a horse, Kobe ratted me out/That's why I'm getting divorced/He said Shaq gave a [expletive] a mil/I don't do that 'cause my name's Shaquille."
Luckily both TMZ and Funny Or Die uploaded a video of the performance, which is as awesome and excruciating as you'd imagine...
