The 50 Best Movie Dialogue Samples in Hip-Hop

47. Ghostface Killah Samples Carlito's Way

Song: "The Soul Controller" (1996)


SPOILER ALERT: Benny Blanco has unexpectedly returned and that's really bad news for street cat trying to do good Carlito Brigante (Al Pacino). The man he slighted before has settled the score and for Carlito the future is looking dim. "Sorry boys, all the stitches in the world can't sew me together again," says Carlito, voice groggy, almost a whisper. "Lay down...lay down. Gonna stretch me out in Fernandez funeral home on Hun and Ninth street. Always knew I'd make a stop there, but a lot later than a whole gang of people thought.... Last of the Mo-Ricans.... Well, maybe not the last. Can't come with me on this trip, though. Getting the shakes now, last call for drinks, bars closing down.... Sun's out, where are we going for breakfast? Don't wanna go far. Rough night, tired baby.... Tired...."

GFK closes out "The Soul Controller" with the ending of Carlito's Way (1993). But in case that weren't enough, Ghost and RZA tack on right after some deep words from Kevin Spacey's character in The Usual Suspects (1995): "The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. And like that...he's gone." (P.S. If you never seen this flick, those words could be SPOILERS too. Oops, too late. And you should be ashamed of yourself for never seeing the movie anyway.)
