I don't see why rappers like Scarface. Mostly because of the drugs and women in the story. I like the action

Didn't you just answer your own question in the space of two sentences?

Anyway, I think some rappers like the action in "Scarface", too:

I've never thought "Scarface" is that great an action movie, anyway. Actually, I think it's not that great a movie, period, but that's just me. The shootout at the end is iconic for good reasons, but as a pure action sequence, I've seen better, even from that era.

If you want pure action, just Netflix "The Wild Geese". The whole movie is guys shooting at each other with Uzi's (my favorite subgun) and FAL's (my favorite rifle)

Rappers like Scarface because Tony Montana came up from nothing. He came to America with just the clothes on his back at the start of the movie and ended the movie as a millionaire (albeit a dead one).

That why a lot of famous rappers like Tupac keep dying?

Why aren't the Wu-Tang guys dead then (probably because they are heavily armed and a few have college degrees)?

Well I tend not to waist my time with what other people do, think, or like. I certainly don’t care if a bunch of morons get infatuated with a movie that I happen to like. People get too hung up on that stupid shit its so annoying. I don’t really care either how much action a movie has; I’m more about how well it is written. Anyway the point being I hate how some people cant make up there own mind.

I also thought it was funny how rappers like to identify with Tony Montana a self destructive man who ruins his friends, family, and own life.

Heh, aspiring to be like Scarface is like somebody professing to his gal,
"I love you! Like Romeo loved Juliet!"
