B.G., a rapper from New Orleans who sang about his “bling-bling ring” and his “bling-bling car” in the late
90s, had no idea that the phrase he’d created would become universally recognised. He started using the phrase
as a cool new way to refer to his shiny diamond ring and big, fancy, expensive car, which were and are status
symbols in hip-hop culture.
Showing off your money and the expensive possessions you can afford to buy is of great importance to hip-hop
musicians, so these artists approved of the new expression “bling-bling”. It eventually came to mean diamonds,
jewellery and anything else extravagant and fancy – possessions that people bought specifically to show off.
“Bling-bling” quickly developed into a popular slang expression, which found its way into many hip-hop songs.
Soon, people outside the hip-hop world began adopting the expression “bling-bling”. In the year 2000, after
having won the NBA championship, the Los Angeles Lakers ordered diamond rings for the whole team with the
expression “bling-bling” engraved on them. Many shops and websites advertise and sell all kinds of bling-bling
jewellery with enormous sparkling jewels on them. Fashion stylists make sure their clients – including famous
Hollywood stars – wear flashy jewellery at important events, so they’ll “bling”, or stand out.
Because of its increased use, the original definition of bling-bling has changed. It has now come to mean a
flashy lifestyle that shows the world you’ve got plenty of money to spend and can afford just about anything
you want. The phrase “bling-bling” also appears in the media. News giant CNN has used bling-bling and other
hip-hop language in order to appeal to a younger audience. Recently, bling-bling appeared in the respected Times
newspaper in Britain. It was used to criticise a famous politician for his bling-bling lifestyle, when he borrowed
a luxury yacht to go on holiday.
It was only a question of time before the expression “bling-bling” was officially accepted as part of the English
language. Today it even appears in standard English dictionaries. However, for people in the hip-hop culture,
bling-bling is already outdated and they’re busy looking for something new to replace it.
Decide if the following sentences are true (T) or
false (F). Find evidence in the text to justify your
answers. (3 x 3 = 9 points)
…… 1. Rapper B.G. was surprised when the phrase
“bling-bling” was accepted by everyone.
