Last night, Magic Johnson was interviewed by CNN regarding the claims made against him by the Los Angeles Clippers' disgraced owner Donald Sterling. While the reaction to Sterling's remarks—wherein he said Johnson should be "ashamed" for having AIDS, which he does not have—was vitriolic, it's far from the first time the Los Angeles Lakers legend has been in the headlines. As one of the greatest NBA players of all time—and an ambassador for a disease, HIV, that has had the entire world on edge for decades—he's gotten name-checked in a multitude of hip-hop tracks. With that in mind, XXL has compiled 36 hip-hop songs that reference Magic Johnson. —Dan Rys

Dr Dre trillions
Now that Dr. Dre is flirting with becoming the very first billionaire hip-hop has ever produced, it's time for rappers to turn their minds to the next goal—that's right, trillions. And as rappers are known for being ahead of the curve when talking about their money, we've already got a good collection of songs that reference the 12 zeroes that fall into that price range. Not surprisingly—with recycled or referential rhymes reaching as far back as the earliest hip-hop songs—much of the lyrical boasts stem from Kanye's "Swagger Like Us" opening line—"Mr. West is in the buildin'/Swagger on a hundred thousand trillion"—but we didn't let that count against anybody. On your marks, get set, brag. —Dan Rys

lean lyrics 40 songs
Much like molly was the buzz word for viral hits in 2012 and 2013, we are now, like it or not, firmly in the age of lean. Sure, sizzurp has been in the game for decades, emerging out of the depths of the Houston underground and firmly into the mainstream with DJ Screw, UGK, the Swishahouse factory and Three 6 Mafia. It killed Screw and Pimp C, ruined (or helped, depending on your perspective) Gucci Mane, was a consistent crutch for Soulja Boy and did an unfortunately fantastic job of nearly leading to a premature end to Lil Wayne.

Recently, the Atlanta scene has been a hotbed of the stuff, with everyone from Future to Migos to Young Thug and everyone in between rapping about their favorite double cups. After Rich Homie Quan was rushed to the hospital this week after suffering two seizures while on the set of his new music video, the overwhelming suspicion was that Quan was downing lean, too. But despite its serious and well-documented health risks, it seems that rappers can't stay away—or stop rapping about it. XXL has compiled a list of 40 songs that reference lean specifically—not purple drank, not sizzurp, but, to quote Young Thug, L-E-A-N-I-N-G/Lean lean lean lean lean lean-lean-lean. From 2 Chainz to Nas, check out the rappers dropping references to that purple stuff. —Dan Rys

"Spaceship"
Artist: Kanye West featuring Consequence and GLC
Producers: Kanye West
Release Year: 2004
Song Sampled: "Distant Lover"
Sample Release Year: 1973
Sample Effect: The vocal kicks Kanye straight into his own hook, while the crooning provides the backbone for one of his most memorable early hooks.
Why The Song Is Dope: One of Kanye's very first iconic tracks lifts some of its most memorable lines—"Heaven knows" being chief among them—from Marvin's original, pushing them up a couple octaves to mask them and allowing Kanye to make them his own. There are so many quotable lines on this track that we probably ruined your entire day by including this one, didn't we? —DR
