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