's third album, Shaq-Fu: Da Return
, is a solid (but not outstanding) rap CD that takes another step forward in that no-man's land between legitimacy and novelty act. Shaq
's skills are in collaborating with A list talent, and Da Return has its share with efforts by Warren G
and Keith Murray
, among others. This CD by the basketball great is notable for its more personal songs, including "Biological Didn't Bother," a testament to his stepfather who he credits for much of his success. The Best of Shaquille O'Neal
may be Shaq
's best collection of songs, but Shaq-Fu: Da Return
is the album where the artist first finds something to say.
