"Bling Bling" is a single by New Orleans rapper B.G., released as the first single from his fifth studio album Chopper City in the Ghetto. It features Hot Boys and Big Tymers. The song peaked at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it B.G.'s most successful single to date. The unedited dirty album version features verses from, in order, Birdman, Turk, Mannie Fresh, Juvenile, and B.G.. Lil Wayne does the chorus, but does not have a verse. The clean and radio edited version features a verse from Lil Wayne in place of Turk, and Wayne still does the chorus. The song helped give mainstream popularity to the hip-hop slang term "bling bling," a term denoting shiny jewelry, flashy, elaborate dress or decadent shows of wealth.
