The movie Scarface has left a figurative buck-fifty on the collective imagination of the hip-hop nation, a mark permanently carved into a notable portion of the art form. Everybody knows Tony Montana lived the life that is diamonds and guns, and that before he snorted piles of coke and met his fate in a hail of enemy bullets, he lived the good life (however briefly). Looking at the upside of thug life (the partyin'), "It's Mine" jacks a synth-heavy composition from the film's OST and perverts Monica's "The Boy Is Mine" for the boozy, sung-bad-on-purpose hook. But, this being a Mobb Deep collabo, a distant gloomy undertone seeps through, making this an apropos score for a fleeting gangsta's paradise.
