'Bling bling,' the rap world's phrase for outward shows of wealth and success has been added to the OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY.

It joins other choice hip-hop words and phrases like 'jiggy,' 'dope' and 'phat' in the definitions resource.

The phrase was coined by New Orleans' rap family Cash Money Millionaires in the late 1990s and started gaining national awareness with a song titled BLING BLING by Cash Money artist BG.

BG says, "I'm so surprised that that word has spread like it has. But I knew it was serious when I saw that the NBA championship ring for the LOS ANGELES LAKERS had the word 'bling bling' written in diamonds on it.

"I just wish that I'd trademarked it, so I'd never have to work again."
