When asked by the co-host the cause of this initiative to buy glasses, Shaq said, “Because I’m a Kanye fan and he said he was gonna start out some of his YZY glasses to the consumer. So, I go to Amazon and I type in Yeezy, look what they sent.

After he shows his newly acquired glasses, Shaq reveals that this is not the only pair he owns. He ordered a whopping 6 pairs of glasses which did not satisfy Shaq.

The highly anticipated accessory was revealed by Kanye about a month ago. Interestingly enough, it was none other than his ex-wife and popular model Kim Kardashian who rocked the pair of sunglasses.

Shaq has talked about Kanye West multiple times in his podcast and elsewhere. During the whole Pete Davidson and Kanye West drama a few months ago, the former NBA champion gave his thoughts regarding the whole issue.
