    Besides Jay’s album, I doubt American Gangster will leave any lasting effects on hip-hop – nowhere near Scarface’s influence, that’s for sure!

  • reci says:

    i think it will cuz jay cd is fire n da movies is a classic plus its sum10 fro da new generation

  • reci says:

    *movie,*for….cant spell…..LOL

  • nav says:

    this movie was very good but overhyped.

  • no……

    A) the dope game is too far along, whereas Scarface was during an era Cocaine dealing wasn’t so common

    B) The movie didn’t really display what people could get from dope dealings and glorify it without remorese like Scarface. Scarface went out on that I don’t Give a Funk attitutde… that’s how cats feel coming up, live or die.

    just my opinion…………………

    IT’S POSSIBLE BUT NOT QUITE BCUZ DA MOVIE SCARFACE EXPRESSED DA FINER THINGS IN LIFE DAT PPL GAIN FROM DEALING COCAINE BUT FRANK LUCAS, DA MAIN CHARACTER IN AMERICAN GANGSTER WAS KNOWN AS SOMEONE WHO WOULD NOT FLASH HIS WEALTH 2 DA PUBLIC UNLIKE TONY MONTANA WHO DID SHOW DA POWER OF HIS WEALTH. ALL IN ALL AMERICAN GANGSTER IS A BETTER MOVIE DEN SCARFACE BECAUSE IT TELLS THE DETAILED LIFE OF A “REAL” GANGSTA IN 1930S OR 40S HARLEM; BUT SCARFACE LEFT MORE INFLUENCE IN HIP HOP DUE 2 DA SHOW OF MONEY POWER & RESPECT…MOSTLY POWER & MONEY.

    hell naw scarface was an epidemic whil american gangster was aight but not all that

  • suck a penis says:

    No but it is a good movie but naw

  • nav says:

    am i wrong to say it was overhyped?

  • James says:

    That’s impossible, do you think we will see rappers on MTV cribs showing off their “american gangster” DVD? i think not, i know not.

  • lupe fiasskicka says:

    I dont know why hip hop embraces scarface in the first place. Italians hated niggaz. Have you seen carlitos way. Italians were about italians, brotherhood, family. All niggaz did for ‘em was shine their shoes. I never understood why hip hop embraced the movie. But to answer the question. no i dont think it’ll have as big an impact.

  • iNfAmOuS says:

    @ lupe:

    What do Italians have to do with Scarface? You do realize that, though Al Pacino is an Italian, Tony Montana was based on a Cuban character, right?

    As for American Gangster being the next Scarface, I’m yet to see it, so I can’t give an educated opinion, but I do find it hard to imagine.

    NAW CUZ EVERYONE THESE DAYS HAVE A.D.D. !!!!! WAT DID I JUST SAY?! LOL =)

  • suck a penis says:

    m2resles naw slut u got A.I.D.S. lmao

  • Kayla M says:

    Am I the only one not in love with Scarface. I love gangsters but dang I ain’t caught up in them. Everyone loves Scarface because it’s about gangsters. But Scarface was white, we got a movie made about a real black gangster and we as a society can’t even support it. Ain’t no one is hardly living Scarface life, Scarface is a whole bunch of exaggeration. I love the finer things too. But Frank Lucas was a real gangster because he hustled but he knew how to sit back and count his money unlike Tony Montana. Respect Frank Lucas and stop saying the movie could have been better. Have you made more money them him, if not give the man his props and go make so money for yourself.

  • Kayla M says:

    I agree with lupe fiasskicka totally. Tony Montana don’t like niggas and ain’t never gave them shit. Real Talk.

  • m2resles says:

    FUCK YOU SUCK A PENIS IMMA NUT IN YOUR MOMS MOUTH 2NITE AND PUT IT ON YOUTUBE!!!!

  • suck a penis says:

    ok really m2resles u sound dumber and dumber you stupid bytch.

  • Cee Cee says:

    I don’t think its gonna have the same effect because its been done before. Scarface was one of the first movies of its kind…but now gangsta movies are a lot more common. i just don’t think that american gangster will be as big of a classic..but that does not mean that it isn’t a great movie.

  • Tashur says:

    lmao@ everybody having the bootleg before it came out in theaters.
    It wa still #1 in the box office though.

    but to answer the question…ehh it might have the same effect
    I doubt it though
