Kanye West

You aren’t hip or cool anymore if you use the word “bling” says Kanye West. According to the singer,

“Only white people and older black people say ‘bling’ now. If a white person uses slang too early, then that makes them look like a wigger. But if black people use slang too late, then it makes them look like a wigger.”

I like to go up to all the cool black people and incorporate the word “bling” at least twice into a sentence. I emphasize “bling” really hard to let them know I’m “down”. Sometimes a little wink and nod helps. Apparently, this won’t work anymore. Wearing my hat to the side still does though, right? What say you Kanye.
