Watch GZA + Tom Morello Perform ‘The Mexican’ on ‘Fallon’
Well, when the Wu-Tang Clan rapper and Rage Against the Machine guitarist visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night (March 3) to perform the new song, they brought all of it with them ... and then some.
GZA and Morello were joined by the Roots and Kara Lane from the Canadian band K.I.D. for their adaptation of the 1972 Babe Ruth song of the same name, which you can watch in the video above. After GZA cuts through his verses and right as Morello is in the middle of his impressive guitar solo, the already all-star lineup of musicians is joined onstage by a pair of break-dancers (you can find that right around the 3:30 mark). Naturally, after the conclusion of the song, Fallon appeared on stage, singing their praises, “That’s the way to do it!”
GZA will release his next solo album, Dark Matter, later this spring, however, it won’t include his collaboration with Morello on its track list.
