The Relationship Between Shaq & The Notorious B.I.G.

Yes, Shaquille O’Neal and The Notorious B.I.G. knew each other. But we didn’t know it was like this. In an ESPN “Outside The Lines” special commemorating the 14th anniversary of Biggie’s passing, we find out that O’Neal should’ve been at the fateful Soul Train Party, and that might’ve been able to make a difference had he been there. Who knows how true that is? We just know that we would’ve loved to have see more collaborations like “You Can’t Stop The Reign” from them.

    Didn’t Shaq and Biggie pull a double team on Lil Kim back in the mid 90s?


    This 7 feett tall, 300 plus pounds MONKEY is lying again, just like guaranteeing championships!

    I don’t buy it. They say if Shaq would have been there it may not have happened? If a killer is gonna shoot a rising music star, for whatever reason, he will not stop just cause Shaq is there. It was a killer, out to kill, nothing short of a bullet in the other direction would have stopped it.

    Lil Cease is NOT Biggie’s cousin! Think about it, Cease called BIG’s mother: Ms. Wallace, BIG never knew his dad, and this is the first I ever heard this & I’m from BK! Btw, Shaq would not have made a difference; he’s irrelevant now and trying to get his fat ass some publicity!! (Biggie voice) And if you don’t know, now you know!!!!

    My question is what happens in the NBA if Shaq was in that car and the killer took his life also. Does Kobe win the same amount of rings? Is Dwade Dwade? Would AI have a ring? Who would be the NBA’s most marketable player?

    Lol..Shaq became a fan of BIG becuz his name was mentioned in the song? So i guess Shaq is now also a big fan of all the movies, songs, merchandise he is mentioned or appeared in…
