A nightclub had to rebuild its DJ booth to fit Shaquille O'Neal, AKA Shaq, according to reports by Page Six magazine.
The former-NBA star, who plays parties under the name DJ Diesel, stands at a rather imposing 7ft tall, and his height means he would not have been able to get behind the decks and perform at the HQ2 venue in Atlantic City last Saturday, 14th July.
In order to make some room so Shaq could make some noise, a crack team of carpenters were drafted in to lower the floor. Given the man in question has been making and spinning music since the 1980s— from collaborations with Notorious B.I.G., Kryoman and Lexoskeleton to sets at Tomorrowland— it’s surprising this situation hasn’t arisen in the past.
