XV - "The Kick"

XV has found a great sample in the erie theme song from inception and proceeds to lay down some deep thoughts respectively. This is one of the many tracks that XV has been releasing lately, and "The Kick" is actually timely for me as I just finally got around to seeing the film a couple days ago. Same idea as how Aloe Blacc's intro song to How to make it in America was so well received, when artists find samples in unique, recognizable places like this it adds another layer to the song, letting you relate to both the lyrics and the subtext. Take the kick for yourself below.
