Rakim once boasted that he could take a phrase that's rarely heard and make it a daily word. Perhaps no act of rapping better illustrates this phenomenon than "Bling Bling." Wayne only provides the chorus, leaving the verses to his Hot Boy brethren, but he stole the show with only two words. Eleven years later the word "bling" is completely played out, the exclusive domain of ironic talk show hosts and soccer moms, but its resonance is undeniable. It's even earned an entry in the Merriam Webster Dictionary.
