Kanye West's birthday earlier this week included a pick up basketball game at the Staples Center.
It also included a heartfelt birthday gift from a guy who used to make his living there.
Shaquille O'Neal, who was also once a rapping genie, dropped a celebratory freestyle for 'Ye.
In his bars, which are set to West's 'Runaway' beat, Shaq says that both he and Kanye are underappreciated.
"Kanye … me and you the same people … we underrated, they treat us like we evil," Shaq raps.
He also takes a big shot at Kobe, saying he did his Laker damage "by myself."
What do you think about Shaq's thoughts on 'Ye and Kobe? Is Bryant going to have to hit back in awkward verse?
