Oh, Shaq. TMZ reports that the basketball superstar:
...took the mic at a NYC club last night [June 22], unleashing a freestyle verbal assault directed at his arch-enemy Kobe Bryant -- blaming his former teammate for ruining his marriage and imploring him to "Tell me how my ass tastes."
TMZ reported today that Shaq has somewhat backtracked, telling 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."
Why, yes. Yes, he is. Evidence after the jump.
Fu-Schnickens, "What's Up Doc (Can We Rock)"
(I can't believe all those hours I spent rotting my brain watching MTV in the '90s are paying off now.)
