Forbes has renamed their annual Cash Prince list –which identifies the ten young Hip Hop figures they expect to make big bank in the future — its “Future Mogul” list.
Because three of the ten in Forbes’s Class of 18 are female. The list is Post Malone, 21 Savage, Playboy Carti, Cardi B, Tyler The Creator, Lil Pump, Lizzo, Wondagurl, Vic Mensa and Dave East.
To qualify, “nominees must be under age 30 and cannot have appeared in a prior class.” Which eliminates many of your favorite young rappers.
This year’s judges were Rap Coalition’s Wendy Day, Charlamagne tha God, and Universal Hip Hop Museum President Rocky Bucano.
What do you think of the list?
And how do you think Forbes did last year when they picked Desiigner, D.R.A.M., Tory Lanez, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, Noname, Isaiah Rashad, Stormzy, Bryson Tiller and Young M.A for their class of ’17?
