Many people don’t know this until they turn to google to see this Shaq O’neal’s gig. Yes, the former basketballer has turned a Disc Jockey (DJ). Below is how Forbes describe the American NBA hall of fame personality in a recent report.
Flash forward to present day, and Shaq has created yet another career for himself, this time as a DJ. He’s in the midst of a 15-date tour dubbed Summer Of Shaq, with Silberzweig and colleague Adam Richman serving as his music managers. Although his earnings as a DJ aren’t enough to qualify him for our list of the world’s highest-paid electronic acts, he’s easily the biggest DJ in terms of physical stature (dwarfing even the towering Afrojack). Cash doesn’t seem to be Shaq’s primary consideration, anyway.
“I always tell people there are two things that bring people together: sports and music,” he explains before a gig at Atlantic City’s Ocean Resort HQ2 dayclub (where his hype man introduces him as “the biggest DJ in the world, literally.”) “For me, it’s not about the money. It’s about the record and the crowd and the Game 7 [atmosphere].”
