As for Shaq Diesel, he flexes his own lyrical prowess that dates back to the 1990s and has made him one of the most acclaimed hoopers-turned-rappers.

“Get it custom at the dealer so I fit the wheel/ I can hear the money talkin’ like if it was Phil/ Focus on communities I wish to build/ When it’s for the unity, that’s when I drill/ They love me out in Philly like I roll with Meek/ They treat me like I’m Ricky when I’m on the beach (Huh!),” he spits with authority.

In addition to teaming up on wax, Rick Ross and Meek Mill made a surprise appearance on Inside the NBA on Thursday night, joining Shaquille O’Neal, Ernie Johnson, Kenny “The Jet” Smith and Charles Barkley.
