Need playlist made up of songs about getting rich and making it.

Short and simple, will take songs from any genre. The example song that comes to mind for me (as in matches what I'm looking for 100%,) is "I Made It" by Kevin Rudolf.

Bonus points if singer was low and now (economically) high. Not necessarily interested in songs simply bragging about wealth, more about the process/achievement, but that's a fine distinction so feel free to post if unsure.
