Dr. Dre and Jay Z Rule the Jungle

Newly minted billionaire Dr. Dre is at it again. He's used some interesting ingredients to create the perfect hype storm. First, let's take a dope Hip Hop sounding track that not a lot of people know about featuring an Indie rock group and a British folk singer and get Jay Z to add a verse to it. Then, leverage the World Cup's massive audience to sell more and more headphones with this ad. Sound like a good plan?

Welp...if I'm either the X Ambassadors or Jamie N Commons, I'm smiling all the way to the bank when I get wind of the Dr. Dre tweet below...
In case you haven't seen the commercial yet when watching the World Cup, check out Jay Z's verse that is as good as advertised below...

Lost in all of this is the fact that Alex da Kid is still a genius. Why you ask? Well, the X Ambassadors are signed to KIDinaKORNER Records, who also have The Imagine Dragons and Skylar Grey on roster. Bet you can't guess who is the brain child behind KIDinaKorner? He needs to get more credit than he gets because he has been behind so much great much that it's getting a little ridiculous that he isn't a household name. Check out the original version of Jungle below and keep your head up for the full remix because it's coming sooner than later...#Jungle
