After retiring from basketball in 2011, Shaq transitioned into the entertainment industry. He has worked as an analyst for Turner.
He debuted his passion for electronic dance music as "DJ Diesel" at EDM festival TomorrowWorld in 2015, according to the Winter Music Conference blog.
"It is still hard to believe sometimes that this 7-foot-1-inch four-time NBA champion, 15-time NBA All-Star is truly, insanely passionate about dance music, specifically bass music ... but if you have ever seen him spin live, his passion and skill as an entertainer are truly undeniable," the DJ Diesel team said in an interview with WMC.
Shaq recently used his platform to share resources about the COVID-19 outbreak in Los Angeles.

“Let’s take care of our senior citizens, love y’all,” he posted on Instagram.
There are more than 3,000 confirmed coronavirus cases in Los Angeles County as of April 1. The city has issued a "safer-at-home" order, closing playgrounds, beaches and nonessential businesses until April 19.
As Shaq has demonstrated during the COVID-19 outbreak, there’s no place like home for a dance party.
