Back in 1993, Shaquille O’Neal let us know he got skillz with his debut album, Shaq Diesel. Now he’s trying to convince Pharrell that’s still the case.

Shaq appears in a new promo clip for the upcoming NBA 2K15 video game, busting a beat in hopes to get Pharrell’s attention. The “Happy” singer is the soundtrack’s executive producer.

Shaq starts things off okay, freestyling, “Yo, Pharrell, this is Shaq / Put me on the 2K15 track” before he’s making promises he might not be able to keep. “I won’t let you down…sign me up Pharrell.”

But the Kazaam star has a good sense of humor, ending the clip by picking on the beatboxer who is hoping to help him make his intentions clear.
