FuGeeS` "RuMBLe iN The JuNGLe" [PRoMo CD SiNGLe]...

What`s happening y`all? Hope all you mothers & mothers to be out there had a great & Happy Mother`s Day! I should have posted up that 2Pac "Dear Mama" single today instead of when I did, it would`ve made more sense....LoL, oh well what`s been done is done I guess. Anyway what I have for y`all is a promo CD single by the Fugees that was released back in 1996. This joint was actually featured on the Soundtrack for "When We Were Kings". A documentary about "The Rumble In The Jungle", the 1974 heavyweight championship bout between Muhammad Ali & George Foreman which took place in Zaire...

You see boxing promoter Don King was out to get a rep` in the boxing world, to do so he offered both fighters 5 G`s each for a match against each other. King found a backer for the whole thing in Zaire`s dictator Mobutu Sese Suko & that`s how the event became known as "The Rumble In The Jungle", which is also the title of the promo single by the Fugees that I`m sharing with y`all. The song features A Tribe Called Quest, Busta Rhymes & John Forte as well. It`s actually the only Hip Hop track on the entire "When We Were Kings Soundtrack", so I guess that`s why there`s 3 versions of "Rumble In The Jungle" & then the rest of this promo single is quotes from Muhammad Ali which is kind of cool in it`s own right. So there ya have it a lil history behind the title of the song go on & check it out, it`s definitely worth a listen...
