Shaquille O’Neal quotes Kanye West in response to rapper denouncing his business dealings

Former NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal Kanye West gives Kanye West a taste of his own medicine after the Grammy Award-winning rapper returned to his Twitter platform and posted Shaq’s dealings.

It all comes after Ye defended basketball star Kyrie Irving Thursday night after Shaq called the Brooklyn Nets player an “idiot” for sharing an anti-Semitic documentary on social media; a decision that cost the player an immense amount of setbacks and a minimum five-game suspension.

“Shaq is in business with Jamie Salter,” Ye wrote in a post, along with a photo of the retired ballplayer-turned-sports analyst. He continued: “Jaimie first said he was 50/50 with David Beckham and 50/50 with Shaq. I said, ‘Jamie… There’s no 50/50 in business… Who has that extra 1 percent for control and voting rights.’ ”

Elsewhere, he added, “Jamie then said he actually has the 51 percent of those two deals. We as creators and talents get so caught up in our vanity that we don’t read or understand the fine print. As Dave Chapelle said, we must stop relinquishing control over our own names and likeness.”

Well, it wasn’t long before the four-time championship winner got wind of Yes’s message and was quick to warn the “Donda” rapper, “Believe me, you don’t know me like that.” Shaq warned the Chicago native to, “Take care of yourself.” Your Business,” before continuing, “to quote the once-great Kanye West: ‘I’ve got more money than you, so why should I listen to you?'”

Shaq ended his response by telling Ye to “take my advice, get his family business in order” and “have a great day bro.” The former athlete’s reply received over 115,000 likes and another 12,000 reposts.

If Shaq’s quotes sound familiar, that’s because Ye said something similar to TV personality Piers Morgan while appearing on his show last month. The Jesus Walks host asked Morgan, “How much money are you worth?” To which Piers replied, “Unfortunately, not as much as you are.” Ye fired back, “Exactly, so take my advice, you might get richer… ‘ before adding, ‘Why should I listen to you.’

Yes’s finances have been a topic of discussion lately after the rapper saw the punishment for anti-Semitic remarks in the form of severed ties with big companies like GAP, Vogue, JP Morgan, Balenciaga and most recently Adidas, which ended his deal with the fashion designer and immediately halted payments to his Yeezy empire, ultimately causing West to lose his billionaire status.

In an impromptu press conference, he claimed, “This is the first year I’ve managed to keep my account above $100 million. I was hit with $27 million in taxes.” He added, “Then Adidas immediately cut my payroll, which was against the contract.” Ye also noted that he was recently made aware of $40 million in bills , which his team “had hidden from me”.
