Guitar icon Jimmy Page recently unveiled a mash-up of classic Led Zeppelin tune "Ramble On" and late rapper Notorious B.I.G.'s "Hypnotize" track.
Titled "Rambalize," the song mixes Notorious' rapping vocals and Jimmy's acoustic guitar part, as well as a few samples of Robert Plant's vocal lines. Make sure to check out the tune below.
Posted last Friday (November 15), the song came along with a note from Page himself saying "On this day Biggie Smalls." Jimmy is already known for rap collaborations, specifically his 1998 work with Puff Daddy on "Come With Me" hit single featuring "Kashmir" guitar parts.
As far as the mash-up goes, "Hypnotize" comes from Biggie Smalls' final effort "Life After Death." "Ramble On," on the other hand, is featured on Led Zep's second studio release, 1969's "Led Zeppelin II."
