75 Hip-Hop Songs That Name Drop LeBron James

Dr Dre billionaire
It may have taken 40 years, but hip-hop may have its first billionaire—Dr. Dre. Following the sale of Beats Electronics to Apple last week for $3.2 billion—and the subsequent hilarious video uploaded by Tyrese—Dre is very nearly—though maybe not quite—the first billionaire in hip-hop's ever-expanding realm. Many may have thought it'd be Jay Z or Diddy—and they may have thought that, too—but the West Coast O.G. beat them all to the punch, and he'll be laying in a bed of money for a long time to come.

Even before Dre's potential billion, hip-hop's luxurious lifestyle has been reaching towards the stratosphere for two decades now, dating back to the days of Biggie and Puff reppin' Bad Boy and Coogi in the 1990s. With all this in mind, XXL compiled a list of 63 hip-hop songs where rappers are reppin' their billions—or at least their ambitions to achieve them along the way. It'll still be Dre Day until the money dries up. —Dan Rys

The West has been on fire since Kendrick Lamar released his critically acclaimed LP, good kid mA.A.d city, and it seems like there's no stopping the momentum of the West. The influence of the Left Coast in hip-hop culture is not only due to the great music coming out of that region but also for the trends that the newer artists are creating with streetwear. As of recently YG and ScHoolboy Q have represented well for their coast, by landing albums that have reached the Top 5 on the Billboard charts, while artists like Casey Veggies and Tyler, The Creator are using their creative juices to produce great garments through their respective clothing brands. With the West currently influencing some of the biggest trends right now—bucket hats, printed tees and long tube socks—we picked out the eight most stylish rappers from the West at the moment.

L.A.-based producer DJ Dahi has been making waves for a minute now, grabbing some high-profile placements on Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d city ("Money Trees") and Drake's Nothing Was The Same ("Worst Behaviour"). And his winning run continued this week with the release of ScHoolboy Q's Oxymoron, where Dahi produced the banger "Hell Of A Night." Dahi, who has been down with TDE since producing Q's "Sexting" record off Habits & Contradictions in 2012, has cultivated a solid relationship with hip-hop's hottest crew of late. "It's really kind of a blessing just to be able to have the opportunity to work with them from the start as they are starting to rise and get their recognition for their talent," he said in an interview with XXL this week. "Somehow, we got good chemistry, and we're definitely trying to keep making some dope, classic stuff."With Oxymoron out this week and Dahi's run of hit songs seemingly set to continue, XXL spoke to the producer about some of the most high-profile tracks of his career, from producing for Q and Kendrick, to working with Drake, to lacing up some magic for Dom Kennedy and Smoke DZA.
