SHAQUILLE O'NEAL MAKES MAGIC WITH FU-SCHNICKENS ON NEW RAP SINGLE; 'WHAT'S UP DOC (CAN WE ROCK)' DEBUTS ON NBC-TV'S 'INSIDE STUFF' JUNE 5

 NEW YORK, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Jive Records' rap group FU- Schnickens will be joined by their labelmate and the Orlando Magic's star center Shaquille O'Neal on the new single "What's Up Doc (Can We Rock)," the video for which, will debut on NBC-TV's "Inside Stuff" on Saturday, June 5 at 11:30 a.m. (EDT). The video will make its premiere on MTV, BET and The Box on Friday, June 11.
 FU-Schnickens' (rhymes with two chickens) debut album, "F.U. Don't Take It Personal," was released last year to critical and commercial acclaim. The album boasted three hit rap singles, "Ring The Alarm," "La Schmoove" and "True FU-Schnick." Chip FU, Poc FU and Moc FU, the trio of Brooklynites that make up the group, combine an unusual blend of rap styles that includes, speed and backwards rapping, ragamuffin and hard- core, all served up with a touch of humor to create an original hip-hop experience.
 Shaquille O'Neal, or as he is sometimes known, Shaq FU, joined forces with the rappers after mentioning in several interviews that FU- Schnickens were his favorite rap group. Once he met the trio, they quickly became collaborators, with Shaq writing lyrics for a verse of a pre-existing FU-Schnickens' track and recording "What's Up Doc (Can We Rock)" with the group. Since then, the quartet has performed the song on both the "Arsenio Hall Show" and for the "NBA's Stay In School Jam." The NBA Rookie of the Year, was recently signed to Jive Records and is currently at work on his upcoming album.
 When asked about his rapping abilities, Shaq replied, "What the video and you'll see, cause I'm a true FU-Schnick now."
