Clocking in at 7’1″ and weighing 325 pounds, former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal is a jack of many trades. In addition to dunking on every man on the court, he is also a former rapper, reality television personality and current analyst on the television program Inside the NBA
. However, he’s not done just yet. This past Friday, the towering center made his debut as DJ Diesel at the Chateau Nightclub & Rooftop in Vegas. He rocked out his custom gold headphones and played many of today’s hit with his fully-equipped Pioneer controller. His DJ debut was a hit and if there is anyone who knows how to get the crowd going, its Shaq. The MVP enjoyed his night in the VIP booth after a job well done. When asked about his future plans as a DJ, he said, “I would love to do a Vegas residency.” The former NBA all star seems to hit gold with every career he touches and whatever he pursues, he’s going to do it big. Props to Diesel for going out there and just having a good time.
