Money, Power, Respect: 10 Dope Examples of Hip Hop's "Scarface" Obsession

The iconic Brian De Palma–directed 1983 film Scarface is hitting Blu-ray Sept. 6 and last night, on August 23, there was a Hollywood soiree to celebrate the moment and the movie's legacy. The event featured a performance by ATL rapper–actor Ludacris. But this is far from the first time that hip hop and Scarface have crossed paths. The over-the-top opulence, rags-to-riches plot line and ruthless "us against them" mindset featured in the film have influenced hip hop to its core, and rappers have made no secret of that. Click on to see 10 examples of hip hop being influenced by Scarface.
