Jimmy Page Presents: The Notorious B.I.G. - "Hypnotize" vs. "Ramble On" (Ramblize Remix)

Former Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page Tweeted "on this day, Biggie Smalls" along with a web-link Friday morning; He's pieced together what kinda sounds like a semi-unfinished mash-up between "Hypnotize" and "Ramble On" that's been dubbed "Ramblize." 90's Hip-Hop heads might recall that this isn't exactly Page's first forre into Hip-Hop, as he previously re-recorded parts of "Kashmir" for Godzilla break-out hit, "Come with Me" with none other than Puff Daddy [included below]. "Ramblize" somehow teeters that fine line, where if it sucked (which it doesn't), it'd still be pretty cool simply because of the sheer fact that Jimmy Page remixed a Biggie track! From what I understand, Page recently uploaded a similar Snoop Dogg/Led Zeppelin mash-up of "Drop It Like It's Hot" (credited to Led Dogg). Lest we forget, Led Zepplin's now-deceased mondo-drummer John Bonham has been infamously sampled by Beastie Boys, Dr. Dre, Jurassic 5, Eminem, Fatboy Slim, and countless other break-beat savvy producers over the years. Sadly, it doesn't look like Zeppelin are getting back together any time soon, but maybe we'll get a Jimmy Page mixtape ha. Led Zeppelin's surviving members are however, in the process of re-mastering the band's complete discography, which was last re-issued nearly 20 years ago. It sounds like they didn't really record a whole lot of extra tracks for Led Zeppelin I-IV, "But there was an overage of material - different versions of things, different approaches to the mixes," Page told Rolling Stone last November.
