When it comes to rap music, no subject is off limits. That goes double for rap songs about being successful. This list asks you to rank the very best rap songs about success by voting up your favorites. How many good success hip hop songs can you think of off the top of your head? Below you'll find popular songs that you've definitely heard before, but also some more underground rap songs with success in the title or lyrics.

Hip hop songs about success can take many forms. Drake and The Notorious B.I.G. have songs specifically about how successful they are. But not all these stars focus on the after-effects of achieving fame – take Kanye West, who raps about chasing his dreams in his popular hit "Can't Tell Me Nothing." From "Started from the Bottom" to "Used to This," this list of rap songs about success discuss ambition, growing up poor, and becoming legends in hip hop history. 

You can add your own music to this list, so feel free to contribute with any new rap songs about success that aren't already on the poll.
