Shaq loves the art of DJ’ing
“Diesel sets are a riot. I always tell fans to come for a journey that they’ll never forget. We’re going to head-bang, sing, laugh, cry and most importantly all be together,” Shaq said in an interview for EDM.com.
“Athletes who want to be musicians don’t understand that you can’t just use your platform to become successful. If the art you put out is wack, people will politely—or rudely—say, ‘No thank you.'” Shaq said in the same interview. “For me, I realized that from the jump. I put myself in the studio with Redman, Erik Ermon, Al Skratch, Def Jef, and other legendary musicians and told them to teach me. It’s all about positioning yourself around the right people.”
WTR is located at 7700 W Courtney Campbell Causeway Suite B. Follow WTR on Instagram.
