Shaquille O'Neal—Hall of Fame basketball player, entertaining broadcaster and facilitator of music-based dreams.

Musical artist Q. Hall shared an encounter his cousin had with O'Neal at a Guitar Center in which the big man bought multiple pieces of equipment:

Shaq is no stranger to music. He had his own hip-hop career that featured a platinum album and a laundry list of marquee names who helped along the way. Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Phife Dawg, Method Man, Redman and Warren G were among those who either produced or appeared on O'Neal tracks.
