Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
About a year ago seeing this on sale for 50 cents, I just could not resist. Listening to "Shaw Diesel" you'll notice many problems in general, but there's one basic problem with Shaq's rapping. It's not like he can't carry a decent flow, and his voice ain't that bad either. It's his unexplainable use of corny, cheesy and flat out ridiculous lyrics. Although it's the best athlete/rapper album I've herd (not including the unreleased Allen Iverson album), it's still really bad...

"(I Know I Got) Skills"... it's actually got a pretty good beat, like a g-funk style. Def Jeff even comes across well. Probably the best tracks actually. (Note: that's a relative statement) Favorite Shaq line: "(yeah, but what about rhymin?) I can hold my own/ knick-knack shaq-attack, give a dog a bone/rhymin is like hoopin', I'm already a legend/back in the days in the food stamp section/used to kick rhymes like baby, baby, baby/every once, every twice, three times a lady" and of course "booty rappers, stay booty.... Ah ha ha ha ha.. psyche!"

"Outstanding" not a bad beat, some pretty nice samples by... Holy crap Eric Sermon! THE Eric Sermon of EPMD, how the hell did he get mixed up in this. Actually a solid track, certainly not outstanding, but Shaq stays away from the ultra cheesy raps and settles for merely shameful. Favorite Shaq line: "Cause there's some things that I gotta' do: /Tape up the ankle, pump up my Shaq-shoe"

"Where Ya At?" how did the Tribe sink to this level?!? Horrid beat by Ali Shaheed. Phife's skills are even lowered down to Shaq's level (`pissing and a farting" why Phife? What did Jive Records buy out your soul from Satan?). The chorus is beyond annoying, the tag-team rhyming between the two is faintly reminiscent of two dogs barking.

1.0 out of 5 stars worse than his free throws June 12, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
this is so stupid it's funny. it's so bad not even his family would buy it. but if you think this is bad you should watch his movie Kazaam. at least in Shaq Diesel you don't have to watch him act stupid.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shaq of All Trades, Master of One. August 21, 2001
By Rob
Format:Audio CD
Shaq is talented. He is an incredible basketball player - clearly the most dominant in the league - a savvy businessman, not a bad writer and a decent entertainer, but I cannot in good conscience give his music much acclaim.
With that said, I will concede that songs on this album like (I Know I Got) Skillz and Shoot Pass Slam, while HEAVY on the boasting, are entertaining. I mean, do you want Shaq to shoot? NO! Do you want Shaq to pass? NO! Do you want Shaq to slam? YEAH! I just wonder if his team and league-mates have the gumption to make fun of him for lyrics like this.
I am not Shaq bashing. After reading his autobiography, I am actually really impressed with the man Shaq has become. We did watch him grow up in the limelight after all, and he has adjusted quite well. His rap, on the otherhand, is, despite at least five albums, sophmoric, almost ubiquitously fitting the mo bass mo better mold that Shaq has a prediliction towards. Don't get me wrong, there are worse rappers out there and Shaq IS entertaining.
I do question, however, the decision to release a "Best of" CD. Using your name to go platinum does not a "Best of" compilation make. Nevertheless, the one can't miss song on this album is his pairing with the one-hit wonders Fu-Schnickens, What's up Doc? (Can We Rock). It is, undeniably, a party anthem!
Bottomline: Entertaining, but not art. Shaq is a master of the court, but maybe with more practice, a great rapper he will become. Hey, Rome wasn't built in a day!

1.0 out of 5 stars This isn't Rap, it's Comedy. February 10, 2000
By Dylan
Format:Audio CD
Normally I am pretty forgiving for horrible recordings. This time I'm not. No matter how you look at it, Shaq can not rap. Most of the time I don't know what the hell he is talking about. People that don't know anything about rap or who have never listened to rap before might think that he has "got skillz", but anyone who knows better will probably feel the same way I do. Frankly, his free-throws are better then his rap.

2.0 out of 5 stars Clean Out Your Ears {2 Stars} March 19, 2007
Format:Audio CD
There really isn't much to these 4 and 5 star reviews. The reasons are usually nostalgic or have something to do with the beats. If you weren't a kid when this dropped, then you probably hated this album from day one. You'll notice that the reviews praising this album never cover the one issue that makes this album wack: the lyrics. This album is wack. Period. On the opening track (and 1st single) Shaq stumbles out of the gate with lines like:

"I dribble rhymes like basketballems (?)/ People call me E.T. (What's That Shaq Man?)/ Extra Tallems..."

and on I Hate 2 Brag (one of the worst songs on the album) he lays eggs like:

"I can flow like pee comin' out ya know what/ or some doo*** dia**** comin' out ya bu**..."

"I'm the lord of the underground dunk funk/ treat me like a big kriss kross/ you better jump punk..."

"I'm cool like a breez/ I'm finished rappin'/ no autographs please..."

And he says "I smoke smoke the mic mic like Cheech Cheech and Chong Chong" at least 5 times on this album...sometimes more than once in the same song.

If you think this album is dope, you have no clue what good rap music is supposed to sound like. You could try and pass this off as an artist that doesn't take himself too seriously, but the lyrics are on par with Vanilla Ice's. No, seriously, they are.

Also, in response to another reviewer, this album came out in '93. Gangsta rap was already the big thing (The Chronic ('92) and Doggystyle ('93) had been released by the time this album came out). That still doesn't excuse this wack album though. And, yes, Shaq should be banned from the recording booth. He showed improvement on later releases, but not much. This album actually gets worse after repeated listens.
