This rarely heard cut (I know many heads who’ve never heard this before, surprisingly) was featured on the soundtrack to the film, When We Were Kings which covered the legendary Rumble In The Jungle heavyweight championship (Muhammad Ali facing off with George Foreman) in 1974. It is purported to be one of the last tracks The Fugees ever cut, after releasing The Score in 1996. Rumble In The Jungle‘s subject revolved heavily around African pride and features many references from the teachings of the Nation of Gods & Earths.
“I’m going to fight for the prestige, not for me, but to uplift my little brothers who are a sleeping on concrete floors today in America, black people who are living on welfare, black people who can’t eat, black people who don’t know no knowledge of themselves, black people who don’t have no future. I want to win my title and walk down the alleys, settle in the garbage can with the wineheads. I want to walk down the street with the dope addicts, talk to the prostitutes so I can help a lot of the people.”
