It’s no secret that the likes of Diddy and Dr. Dre are among Hip Hop’s leading moneymakers
but on Tuesday (January 9), Forbes dropped its Hip Hop Future Moguls list, which catalogs
the next generation of music magnates. The 2018 edition of the elite 10-member club features 21 Savage,
Cardi B, Lil Pump, Tyler The Creator and Post Malone, among others.
The list was called the Hip Hop Cash Princes in previous years but was renamed in 2018 to promote inclusion.
This year’s list is more diverse than ever before in terms of the ages, ethnicities and genders of the selections.
Cardi B’s inclusion comes after she enjoyed a huge 2017. Last summer, her platinum “Bodak Yellow” anthem
proved to be inescapable, as it landed at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, making her only the second female rapper
to ever top the chart without any features.
