Shaq auditions for Pharrell

ALL BALL NERVE CENTERShaquille O’Neal is not only a Hall of Fame basketball player, he also has historically had a variety of interests off the court, from acting to investing to rapping. As a rapper, he’s released six albums, and his first record, Shaq Diesel, actually went platinum. (He once told me, with a laugh, “Two went platinum, two went gold, two went wood.”)

And now that Shaq’s a member of the “Inside the NBA” crew, he’s apparently not quite ready to leave to leave rapping behind. In the video below, Shaq asks Pharrell to consider him for inclusion on the soundtrack of NBA2K15. I’m not sure this is the strongest audition, but it’s a start…

    Auditions for Pharrel won’t give you Shaq your 5th ring. You need to audition to Cleveland and play with our “king” LeBron. We will trade Joe Harris plus future first round picks to Inside NBA crew!

    Shaq Fu i bought that 1st release always a fan…need to do a rev2 remix ! It’s rue, better beat box would be great and should be smoother for example …
    wat up boy? it’s Shaq and ’em … you know that you & I went platinum

    LBJ, I miss you buddy. Where have you been? Your stupid and priceless comments are beautiful but I think Shaq already played with your queen in Cleveland and they couldn’t win.
