Conclusion

Pro-social Content

Shaq says, "I'm born from my mother, but I'm God's creation" on "I'm Outstanding." He also refers to family love and "guidance from above." "Let Me In, Let Me In," rejects sex-hungry female groupies.

Objectionable Content

This monotone effort is strewn with crude, though not obscene, language. Also, one track is titled "I Hate 2 Brag." Don't believe it. Most of the album consists of macho boasting, primarily about the superstar center's size and basketball prowess-and occasionally of violent toughness ("I put you in check or break your neck," "punch you in your face").

Summary Advisory

Possibly the hottest NBA property since Michael Jordan, Shaq acknowledges his role model status, but needs to take it much more seriously when rapping. A few positives exist, but this rookie recording effort travels out of bounds.
