In what can only be described as an exhibition of his heavy-handed influence in music, Pharrell Williams opened up this year’s NBA All-Star game with a medley of some of his greatest hits. Flaunting his “Skateboard P” swag, Williams began with his first solo single, “Frontin.’” The nostalgic, time-traveling performance then saw its first cameo with Nelly making an appearance for “Hot In Herre,” the chart-topping classic produced by Williams.

After a quick indulgence in Jay-Z’s “Give It To Me,” Williams was joined onstage by Diddy and Busta Rhymes for “Pass The Rock This Way,” a fitting NBA spin to their hit “Pass The Courvoisier Pt. II,” before switching gears into the classic beat for Clipse’s “Grindin’” as the Eastern All-Stars took the stage.

Not to be left out of the abbreviated list of Pharrell favorites was 2013 smash “Blurred Lines,” which segwayed into an appearance by Williams’ co-Neptune Chad Lugo for a performance of the duo’s 2001 single “Rockstar.” Snoop Lion also joined Williams for a performance of their 2006 summer anthem “Beautiful,” before leading into another hit by the two, “Drop It Like it’s Hot” for the Western All-Star’s entrance.

Williams then switched gears to his recent pop behemoths, the Grammy-winning Daft Punk “Get Lucky” and Oscar-nominated “Happy,” which called for an appearance from a bright red version of his infamous hat.
