Hip Hop Samples: Kick, Push

If you liked the post on Daydreamin’, definitely check this out. It’s Lupe again, Kick, Push, to be exact. He samples the first few seconds of Bolero Medley by Celeste Legaspi in the intro, and also loops part of her track for the duration of the song. He pulls it off quite well; I feel like in hindsight, it’s always easy to see how a certain sample could work in hip hop.  But someone had to unearth this absurdly random bolero song, actually listen to it, eventually chop it up and pitch it to Lupe. Props to Soundtrakk, the producer of Kick, Push (and Daydreamin’, actually).
