The NBA season is over, but Shaquille O’Neal is providing plenty of off court drama by reigniting his feud with former Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant. In this latest round of the battle, Shaq attacks Kobe in a disparaging rap song that was videotaped at a New York City nightclub on Sunday night. In the two minute video, Shaq blames Kobe for the demise of his five year marriage to soon-to-be-ex wife Shaunie, with whom he has four children. Shaq raps,
“I’m a horse, Kobe ratted me out. That’s why I’m getting divorced. He said Shaq gave a [woman] a mil. I don’t do that ’cause my name’s Shaquille. I love ‘em, I don’t leave ‘em. I got a vasectomy, now I can’t breed ‘em.”
Shaq later told ESPN’s Stephen Smith:
“I was freestyling. That’s all. It was all done in fun. Nothing serious whatsoever. That is what MCs do. They freestyle when called upon. I’m totally cool with Kobe. No issue at all. And by the way, don’t forget, six albums, two platinum, two gold. Anybody who knows me knows I’m a funny freestyler. Check the NBA DVD when I was rapping about Vlade Divac during my first championship run. Please tell everybody don’t make something out of nothing.”
OK, Shaq, you were freestyling, but more importantly, why are you a horse?
