Here is the team-up we didn't know we needed...legendary chef, Gordon Ramsay and Lil Nas X!
Lil Nas X released his highly-anticipated EP, 7, and featured on his this EP was a track titled "Panini". Well, the two followed through on promises of a tasty collaboration by actually getting together and making sandwiches earlier this week.
Lil Nas X originally jokingly asked Gordon Ramsay on Twitter to make a guest appearance on the remix of his latest single, "Panini." Lil Nax X being Lil Nas X Tweeted the legendary chef once again on July 1st, asking him to “teach me how to make paninis” while he was still in London following a performance at the Glastonbury Festival
...AND IT HAPPENED! Gordon Ramsay responded by asking Lil Nas X to “name the day.” The two then apparently settled on Wednesday, because this happened. See below:
Based on Ramsay’s tweet, the pair’s panini-pressing lesson went down at the chef’s new Mayfair restaurant, Lucky Cat. All the proof was in Lil Nas X’s documentation of the event, he and Ramsay were just as excited to raid Lucky Cat’s knife cabinet to lend some pizazz to their photo op.
It’s worth noting, however, that Lil Nas X has confirmed “Panini” is not about sandwiches at all, but rather a character from an older Cartoon Network show called “Chowder.”
The "Old Town Road" singer added that fans also mistakenly believed “Panini” had sampled Nirvana’s 1992 song “In Bloom,” but clarified that he had never actually listened to the band’s “Nevermind” album until the similarity was pointed out. He now credits Kurt Cobain as a songwriter on “Panini,” People reports.
