Artist Biography

Shaquille O’Neal aka Shaq aka DJ Diesel is a legendary basketball player who has recently turned into the biggest DJ on earth. A Hall of Famer for the NBA, he was turned onto EDM after he attended TomorrowWorld in 2014 where his life changed into a pursuit of producing his own electronic music. This was not Shaq’s first foray into music. When he was 14 he became fixated on hip-hop DJ’ing after seeing Public Enemy live for the first time. He saved every nickel and dime to buy a set of turntables from a local pawn shop. Shaq didn’t release his first rap album until 1993 titled Shaq Diesel, and in doing so became the only athlete ever to have a platinum-selling album as his album sold over one million copies and peaked at number 25 on the Billboard 100. In 2015, the year after he discovered the power of EDM, Shaq debuted as a DJ under the name DJ Diesel at TomorrowWorld. Since this first show, he has brought his performances around the world with his Fun House series featuring Diplo, Steve Aoki, A-Track, Migos, Diplo, Tiesto, Lil Jon, T-Pain, and many other legendary artists.
