We think it’s fair to say that most Americans are fascinated by the British accent and it seems Kid Cudi is such a big fan of it that he has used voice clips from 2011’s hit comedy horror film Attack the Block in his latest single.
Cudi’s new track Dennis, Hook Me Up With Some More Of That Whiskey! not only opens with a line from the film, but also features another line one minute into the song.
Attack the Block follows a group of young boys as they try to defend their council estate in south London from an alien invasion and stars John Boyega, an upcoming actor who also made a name for himself in this year’s BBC Three drama My Murder.
Since the beat to Cudi’s new track has a slightly supernatural sound to it and as the G.O.O.D Music rapper likes the theme of space (well, he did have a series of albums called Man on the Moon), it’s quite fitting that the British film was sampled.
Check out the beginning and another line at around the 1:15 mark.
