Hip Hop and R&B artists make up a good chunk of Forbes 2015 "30 Under 30" list.
Making the Forbes list in an honor often romanticized in rap, and if the latest "30 under 30" list is any indication, more and more hip hop and R&B artists will find themselves in the Forbes tax bracket. About a third of this year's list -- which looks at artists in their 20s who are making some serious moves in the industry -- is made up of rappers, producers, and R&B singers.Â
Among those picked as future moguls are ASAP Rocky,Â Big Sean, FKA Twigs, Mike WiLL Made It, Jhene Aiko, Iggy Azalea, DJ Mustard, Azealia Banks, Hit-Boy and Chance The Rapper. The artists range in age from 21 to 27 (Chance being the youngest, and Hit-Boy the oldest, relatively speaking).Â
Florida Georgia Line were chosen as the "Leaders" of the class of 2015, and despite being a country act, are infamous for pulling liberally from the world of hip hop and R&B as well.
