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
