Forbes’ 2015 Hip-Hop Cash Princes List Features Young Thug, Iggy Azalea, Rae Sremmurd
Forbes‘ annual Hip-Hop Cash Kings list has been a pretty big deal since the rundown of rappers with hefty bank accounts was first revealed in 2007. While various factors go into determining who appears on the list, the main objective is to find out which of today’s rap stars make bank. Now, the financial publication is switching things up with the Hip-Hop Cash Princes: Class of 2015.
The panel to decide which artist makes this list includes Tyga, DJ Khaled and Hot 97 radio personality Peter Rosenberg, as well as Forbes senior editor Zach O’Malley Greenberg and staff writer Natalie Robehmed. Any hip-hop act under the age 30 as of March 31 was eligible for consideration as long as they hadn’t appeared on a Cash Kings’ or Princes’ list previously.
Notable artists that made the cut include rappers Young Thug, Iggy Azalea and Rae Sremmurd as well as producers and even a singer. These artists among the most popular names in rap music and responsible for some of the biggest hits of the last two years. And while the list doesn’t rank the Cash Princes in order or reveal their estimated earnings, we’re more than sure they’re all well within the confines of the six-figures club. They’re also more than primed to increase their cash flow throughout the rest of the year.
