Shaq, A.K.A. DJ Diesel, On The Art Of DJing, Loving Bass Music & Doing It Since '88 | On The Road At Lollapalooza 2019
"I like bass music. I'm seven foot, 350, I consider myself hard, when I played on the basketball court I was hard. I like the hard drops," the NBA Hall of Famer told us before his lit Lolla set.
While On The Road at Lollapalooza 2019, the Recording Academy caught up with NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neil, a.k.a. DJ Diesel, right before he got the kids dancing at his packed Sunday DJ set at the fest. We discussed his musical evolution, love of bass music, how he crafts his sets on the fly, scratching his father's Commodores record and more.
