Shaquille O'Neal aka Diesel
Shaquille O'Neal is one of the most dominant basketball players in NBA history and is now also one of the greatest entertainers on earth. At 7'1" and 325 pounds, Shaq's larger-than-life personality and powerful athleticism have resulted in worldwide adulation and one of the most passionate fan bases in sports and entertainment. The Hall of Famer first discovered electronic dance music after crashing TomorrowWorld festival in 2014, a milestone event that changed his life forever after being exposed to DJ's such as Steve Aoki and Skrillex. Shaquille has been passionate about music from a very young age - at just 14 after O'Neal saw Public Enemy live for the first time, sandwiched in a crowd of 5,000 people, he became fixated on DJ'ing. He cut his neighbors' grass, walked dogs, and scraped together any cash that he could until he saved up $200 buy his first set of turntables at a local pawn shop.
SHAQ aka DJ Diesel's dance music debut was at TomorrowWorld 2015, as the Hall of Famer took the stage for the fist time in front of tens of thousands of fans mixing the best of Trap, EDM, and Hip-Hop. From there DJ Diesel's career was born as he cemented the title of 'the biggest DJ in the world.' DJ Diesel recently embarked on a 15+ date 'Summer of SHAQ' tour spanning many of the nations top festivals and nightclubs. Shaquille O'Neal's off-court accolades rival his athletic accomplishments, having found success in acting, music, television, gaming, and while SHAQ is already a platinum recording Hip-Hop artist, this is just the beginning for DJ Diesel.
