Rap Songs That Reference ‘Scarface’
Pimp C – “Hogg In The Game”
Much like “trill,” it’s hard to define what “hogg” really means (perhaps Slim Thug can clear it up). Either way, the late Pimp C, who embodies all things hogg, says, “They call me Tony Montana because I’m lettin’ em hang.” So hoggs let you hang.
Big K.R.I.T. – “Hood Fame”
The mantra in Scarface (well, one of many) is “the world is yours.” It’s something Nas has said, Scarface (the rapper), and many others. K.R.I.T. gives the credit where it’s due though. He reminds us all that, “Hey the world is yours like Tony Montana.”
The Notorious B.I.G. & Tupac Shakur – “Live Freestyle”
In one of rap’s most notorious (pun intended) freestyles, Pac and Biggie drop bars all over the stage for us to keep remembering. It was Biggie who sends a high five to Scarface though with, “Now we smoke weed like Tony Montana sniffed the yayo.” That’s crazy blunts.
Future featuring Drake – “Tony Montana”
Not much to say about this one, other than the fact that the title of the song is Tony Montana’s name. Then Future takes it to the next level by chanting “Tony Montana” all throughout the hook. So yeah, it’s safe to say that’s an ode.
Common featuring Nas – “Ghetto Dreams”
There’s a slight error in Com’s lyrics on “Ghetto Dreams.” “Ghetto Prince, she’s my Apollonia,” he says. “Like chick that had the back of Tony, Montana.” Apollonia was actually in The Godfather and married Michael Corleone. Whoops.
