What Do You Think Of This Zeppelin/Notorious B.I.G. Mash Up

Jimmy Page has been very busy preparing his massive Led Zeppelin reissue project for an early 2014 release. Page has said every Zeppelin album will be re-mastered and include a bonus disc with a cornucopia of extras including alternate takes, demos, and other unreleased material. Yes, I will be buying into it. It will be the second or third copies of these albums for me.(That doesn't include cassettes.) But like millions of others on this planet, I Love Zeppelin.

Apparently Mr. Page has also spent some time experimenting, like with this mash up with "Ramble On" and Notorious B.I.G.'s "Hypnotize". This isn't Page's first foray into Hip-Hop. How can we forget Puff Daddy's use of "Kashmir" on "Come With Me" from the 1998 'Godzilla' soundtrack? I try to forget it everyday. The track below is much better in my humble opinion. It's always touchy when you are messing with music that so many are emotionally attached. Let me know what you think of it in the comments section below.
