Besides being one of the NBA’s most dominant big men of all-time, former Laker and 4-time NBA champion Shaquille O’Neal is still widely known today as one of the biggest entertainers that has ever entered the league.
After having a 19-year career full of accolades and hysterical moments, the original ‘Superman’ has done quite well for himself becoming a reserve police officer, obtaining his Doctorate Degree, and joining TNT’s Emmy-nominated show ‘Inside The NBA’ as an NBA analyst.
However, Shaq’s love for music that once began as a rapping career in his early playing days has now transcended him to become a DJ known as ‘DJ Diesel,’ where he recently played at the Tomorrowland music festival and instantly became a crowd favorite:

Tomorrowland may be known as an electronic music festival that attracts some of the world’s top DJ’s, especially in the EDM scene, but one thing we’ve learned about The Big Aristotle is that no stage is ever too big for the 7’1″ rim rocker to shake (via Shaq’s Instagram):
His set in Belgium this weekend seemed to have gained him even more popularity and an enormous amount of respect for those who didn’t even know he DJ’d, so it’s safe to say that O’Neal won’t have a problem booking his next event soon. And who knows, maybe we’ll see a DJ performance out of him sometime throughout the 2017 NBA season.
