Hip-hop star Fat Joe is such a big fan of Al Pacino's character in the classic movie Scarface, he sports a tattoo of the fictional gangster on his arm.

The WE THUGGIN' rapper, real name JOSEPH ANTONIO CARTAGENA, admits he's fixated with Pacino's legendary Cuban immigrant character TONY MONTANA - as is the majority of the hip-hop community.

Fat Joe says, "He came from nothing and made something out of himself, so everybody in the 'hood wants to find a ROBIN HOOD to cling onto and Tony Montana was definitely the 'hood's favourite.

"Every rapper in the world loves him. I've actually got a tattoo of him on my arm. It's incredible the impact the movie Scarface had on the neighbourhood."
