With the year 2012 quickly coming to a close, media publications across the board are making lists honoring the best and brightest stars of the past 12 months. Now, Forbes has named Hip Hop artists like Wiz Khalifa and Drake to its annual “30 Under 30” list.
Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list celebrates 30 of the most successful “young disruptors, innovators and entrepreneurs” under the age of 30 who struck it big over this past year. This year, however, a number of Hip Hop’s biggest young artists ranked high on the list.
Coming in a the top position on the list is Wiz Khalifa, who Forbes credited for, “rak[ing] in $20 million over the past two years [and] twice landing on Forbes’ Hip-Hop Cash Kings list.” Wiz was not alone in this honor, as Drake, Mac Miller, Kendrick Lamar and Frank Ocean also appeared on the list.
