It feels like the year 1994. You see Shaq on your television set doing commercials pitching everything across the board. This month though he has taken it to a new level by resurrecting his video game Shaq-Fu: a Legend Reborn for a new generation. As well as playing a prominent supporting role in Kyrie Irving's film Uncle Drew. Back in 1994 Shaq was launching the original Shaq-Fu video game and making his acting debut in the film Blue Chips. It was also the year Shaq released his sophomore hip hop album, Shaq Fu: Da Return. He was coming off the success form his debut album Shaq Diesel released the previous year and had attained platinum status. He would go on to release several albums during the 90's. When it came to the movies, videogames, and commercials for Shaq it has been about having fun and collecting a nice check. When it came to his music career though it was apparent that he wanted to be taken seriously.
When it was all said and done he released four albums with one going platinum and the other gold. Even managed to be nominated for a Grammy as well. Shaq would have some of the biggest heavyweight producers running the boards including the likes of Erick Sermon, Warren G, Trackmasters, Rza, and DJ Quik to name a few. While sharing the mic with Jay Z, Biggie, Nas, Rakim, Method Man, Mobb Deep, Ice Cube, Krs-One, B-Real, and others. Two standout tracks from his 1993 debut album Shaq Diesel were "I'm Outstanding" and "Shoot Pass Slam" both produced by legendary producer Erick Sermon. #90sRap #Basketball #ErickSermon #NBA #NotoriousBig #Shaq #ShaqDiesel #ShaqFu #ShaquilleO
