Some of you may remember this ill-fated movie from 1996.

It starred Shaquille O’Neal as a rapping genie who lived inside a boom box. And that was about it.

Well, Shaq has taken his lumps over the years for making that movie, and now he is finally explaining why in the WORLD he made that movie.

Shaq said, “I was a medium-level juvenile delinquent from Newark, New Jersey who always dreamed about doing a movie. Someone said, ‘Hey, here’s $7 million, come in and do this genie movie.’ What am I going to say, no? So I did it.”

Fair enough.

Here is a clip of Shaq making his first appearance in the movie combined with some baaaaaad rapping:
