Led Zeppelin X Notorious B.I.G. – “Ramblize”

Notorious B.I.G. Led Zeppelin - Ramblize

A joint from the greatest Hard Rock band of all time and one of the greatest Emcees ever? Apparently that’s a thing that exists now.

Led Zeppelin’s guitarist, living legend Jimmy Page, tweeted out a link to his official page which surprisingly included his remix of the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Hypnotize” vocals atop Zep’s “Ramble On.” Not just because Page is my favorite guitarist ever, but I think this works. It actually sounds like a 90’s track, with the drum beat staying very true to the decade while the song itself holds the production style of what we hear in Naughty By Nature’s “O.P.P.” and their use of the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” riff.
