Jellyroll recently got quite the gift from some of his heroes.

Rickey Medlocke and Johnny Van Zant of Lynyrd Skynyrd made a guest appearance at the rapper’s Jacksonville, Florida show.

The pair helped perform their song “Simple Man” with Jellyroll before presenting him with a guitar belonging to late band member Gary Rossington.

They told the emotional performer that Rossington’s family wanted him to have it.

Medlock called Jelly Roll “the real deal” and said “I actually met him for the first time in November of last year, and he hasn’t changed one damn bit.”

Should Jellyroll and the remaining members of Lynyrd Skynyrd do more music together?
