Scarface is 30. And for once I disagree with Big Ghost Ltd:
Damn. 30th anniversary of Scarface tho? That shit seem like it was only released 40 years ago

Honestly: Scarface is still fresh. Rap hasn’t found a better film to quote from yet. There is no bad guy on the horizon who is
A as bad-ass and megalomaniac as Tony Montana and
B quite as charismatic and akwardly likeable as him.
The Joker (The Dark Knight) might be a candidate. But he is much too complex and not as relatable for Rap culture.
So let’s toast to another 30 years of influence. He said it himself: “The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you.”
What you lookin’ at? You all a bunch of fuckin’ assholes. You know why? You don’t have the guts to be what you wanna be? You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin’ fingers and say, “That’s the bad guy.” So… what that make you? Good? You’re not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don’t have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. So say good night to the bad guy! Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Come on. Make way for the bad guy. There’s a bad guy comin’ through! Better get outta his way!
