Visuallize this:

Nissan 200SX (or anything similar...),
Lowered suspension,
19" x 8" rims with "licorice" tyres,
Neon lights everywhere,
1.5KW sound system driving 38 speakers blaring "doof doof" music,
"Tin can" exhaust,
Etc., etc.


....and of course the mindset that goes with all that.

get the picture????

Jamaican slang that has been adopted by some African American rappers and inserted into popular culture. The term "Bling Bling" refers to the imaginary "sound" that is produced from light reflected by a diamond. See The Silvertones "Bling Bling Christmas" for the earliest known usage of the slang.

Commonly referred to as precious stone or metal to create the effect of being shiny, sparkly, and grabs hold of your attention.

In a sense...it's "flashing" what you've got. Mostly in terms of Jewelry but has become a generic term for anything flashy and is mostly over the top stuff. So in the automotive world... Light accessories, chrome...chrome..chrome... or any other accessories that moreso dresses up the vehicle beyond the norm. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

another:

originally derived from the sound made by shiny items in cartoons and toothpaste commercials, bling-bling describes anything dope, stupid, phat, or fly.
