Stormzy has topped Forbes 'Hip Hop Cash Princes' list alongside Desiigner, Lil Uzi Vert, Young MA and more international artists.

The list acts as a definitive compilation of rappers under the age of 30 who are making waves, critically and financially, in the world of Hip-Hop.

It's also just one step down from Forbes' well-known 'Hip Hop Cash Kings' list, which houses the likes of Diddy, Jay Z and Dr. Dre to name a few.

In a list usually dominated by American artists, the South Londoner is flying the flag for his home country alongside fellow Brit Little Simz.

Following the success of his promising debut album 'Gang Signs & Prayer', 23-year-old Stormzy gained the title of 'Cash Prince' after making a huge impact overseas - he's sold over a million singles worldwide.

Across the pond, New York natives 19-year-old Desiigner and 24-year-old Young M.A. both rank high on the list, whilst D.R.A.M., Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert , Noname and Isaiah Rashad also feature.
