Shaquille O’Neal threw the biggest and craziest pre-Super Bowl party in Las Vegas, turning the event into his annual “Shaq Fun House” — with a major performance by none other than Lil Wayne!
The retired NBA legend kicked off the Friday night soiree at XS nightclub on the Vegas strip with hordes of people packing the venue to bear witness to Shaq’s master skills as a disc jockey followed by Wayne’s energetic show.
Check out this video, obtained by TMZ … Shaq, who also goes by the name DJ Diesel, revved up the record player and spun some tunes, getting into the groove with the crowd.
Wearing some major bling around his neck, Shaq kept the house music going for a while until Diplo took over the DJ duties before it was time to bring out the hip hop icon … AKA Wayne.
After Wayne took to the stage, he rapped like there was no tomorrow, getting the crowd all worked up into a frenzy.
Wayne performed some of his biggest hits, such as “6 Foot 7 Foot” and “John.” And the audience just loved it, recording the whole gig with their cell phone cameras.
There was one touching moment when Shaq got emotional while talking about the recent unveiling of late NBA superstar Kobe Bryant‘s new statue.
Shaq said the ceremony was very emotional, wishing Kobe was there to see the statue himself and give a speech. As you know, Kobe was killed in a 2020 helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.
