Name That Sample - "Curious".

Name That Sample is simple: I play the original song, you tell me who sampled it. Winner gets a day's supply of Cyber CapriSuns™. As always, no Googling! Google is for losers.

This classic soul tune by Midnight Star has been sampled dozens of times. Personally, it's one of my favorite songs. Dang, whatever happened to real music? Sure, there's some synths and 808's goin' on here, the lyrics are so innocent. Dude is just rappin' to a chick he just met, and wants to know better. What's purer than that? We could use a lot more "Curious" and a lot less "Best I Ever Had"s, but that's just my old a$$ talkin' as usual.[1]

Anyways, this tune was most notably sampled for a classic 90's hip hop soundtrack song by a rapper who's renowned as the best that ever did it. Can you name the artist, song, and movie?

Question: How many songs can you name that used the "Curious" sample? Don't be fooled into just listening to the opening bars, or you'll prolly miss half the possible answers. Feel free to cheat and use other commenters' work, but do NOT Google! Google is for losers.

[1] I know Drake is the current "next big thing" this month, but have ya'll listened to the actual lyrics of that song? Don't let your nieces listen to that crap, seriously.
