This is Shaq’s most recent rap verse; he previously appeared as a guest on Meek Mill and Rick Ross’ “SHAQ & KOBE (Remix)” with Damian Lillard, alias Dame D.O.L.L.A. Early in his career, Ross revealed on Complex’s GOAT Talk, he was signed to O’Neal.

“He was introducing T.W.IsM. Records.” Somewhere in Atlanta, we crossed paths. In a restaurant, we first met,” Ross remarked. “After that, we entered the kitchen at the back. For him, I vomited out a few bars. He provided me with his contact information, and we briefly communicated. You know how that goes, though.

When the two finally got back together, Ross gave O’Neal an MMG chain during an appearance on Inside the NBA in October.
