In this writer's opinion, one of the canary-in-the-coalmine signals for the health of hip hop is the continued existence of rap songs related to the film Scarface. As long as tracks like Future's "Tony Montana" are successful on a wide scale, I think we can rest comfortably knowing hip hop is alive and well. The latest addition to the Tony Montana catalog is "All I Need," by little-known Houston recording artist YaFamAce. Producers Stunt N Dozier laced the track with an infectious beat and hook. Building on a classic Geto Boys instrumental, they add an ominous guitar line to create one of the better Scarface-inspired moments of the last few years.
