Kimmel Gives The World A Kenny G and Warren G Mashup
. (Radio.com) It seems that Team Jimmy Kimmel ignored all of our suggestions for their final #MashUpMonday of the month, which means that our hopes of seeing Jessie J Mascis, Jack White Zombie or Mos Def Leppard may never be realized.
But we have to admit, we wish we thought of this one: Warren and Kenny G. Yes, Warren G, stepbrother of Dr. Dre, former member of 213 and proud representative of the G-Funk movement of the '90s. And yes, Kenny G, adult contemporary and smooth jazz saxophone icon.
When they did Kenny G's 1987 mega hit "Songbird" with Warren G free-styling fierce rhymes on top of Kenny's easy-listening classic, they killed it. No, just kidding. They did the Warren G/Nate Dogg 1994 gem "Regulate," and it was pretty amazing regardless.
Fittingly, Nate Dogg's recorded vocals were used--he passed away in 2011 due to complications from multiple strokes--and Kenny G complemented Warren G and his band with his really, really, smooth sax lines.
Check out the mashup here.
