Scarface immediately received a hip-hop cult following since its 1983 release, and it is still inescapable 20 years later. Just a day after Drake released his Scarface-inspired “Hold On, We’re Going Home” mini-movie, Rick Ross used scenes from the Brian De Palma epic for his new video for the Future-assisted ”No Games.”
The clip shows the rapper (sans the track’s guest Future) contemplating in a hotel suite as footage from the classic film intercuts, making connections to his love for drug kingpins (despite being a phony himself). It is all captured in black and white, the go-to “gangsta” filter for rappers. Overall, the song basically serves as background music to a Scarface highlight reel. We can’t tell if that makes it meta or lazy.
“No Games” is the first single of Rozay’s forthcoming sixth album Mastermind, which doesn’t have a release date as of now.
