Pharrell brought out the best surprise guest that Rolling Loud could ask for last night, and it’s not the type of person you’d expect. Rather than bring out another rapper, Pharrell Williams went a few steps further for N.E.R.D’s set at Rolling Loud in Miami.

After talking about the state of our country and all the tragedy around us, Pharrell invited the “Waffle House Hero”, James Shaw Jr., to join him on stage. Williams commended him for his bravery and public service, after Shaw not only disarmed a gunman at a Waffle House this past month but also raised money for the victim’s funeral costs.

Rolling Loud was witness to a true hero and a rap legend on Friday night.
