By on August 26, 2011

This is the kind of awesome shit that happens when worlds collide, Al Pacino acknowledging the hip-hop community for keeping his iconic performance of “Tony Montana” and film Scarface alive and in the conversation for over two decades. MTV caught up with the legendary actor at the red carpet event for Blue-Ray release of the film and captured his thoughts about what rap has done for “Tony Montana” lure.

“The hip-hop people and the rappers got together and they made a video and they talked about the movie. I don’t think anybody’s ever talked about it as articulately and clearly. I understood it better having heard them talk about it. I mean, they really get it and they understand it, and that’s a great thing. They’ve been very supportive all these years. I think they’ve helped us tremendously.”
