Check out the 12 hip-hop acts who made the 2015 list of Forbes' "Hip-Hop Cash Princes".

Since 2007, Forbes has been profiling young rappers who are making major cash money. Each year, the magazine chooses a list of "Cash Princes" who they think could eventually become "Cash Kings", a more exclusive list that includes industry moguls like Diddy, Jay Z, and Dr. Dre. 

This year's Cash Princes are: Mike Will Made-It, Migos, Rae Sremmurd, DJ Mustard, Young Thug, Nipsey Hussle, Iggy Azalea, Ty Dolla $ign, Hit-Boy, YG, PartyNextDoor, and Kid Ink. 

The list includes three producers--Mike Will, Hit-Boy, and DJ Mustard, who had more tracks in the Hot 100 last year than any producer. Nipsey Hussle made the list off mixtapes alone--note that he made $100,000 in a day for his 2013 Crenshaw mixtape, though 10k came from Jay Z alone. Iggy Azalea's name definitely stands out among the list; the Aussie rapper racks in 75k a show, more than anyone else on the list.

The three judges on this year's panel were former Cash Prince Tyga, Cash King DJ Khaled, and Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg

What do you think of the picks? Who else would you have on the list?
