Hip-Hop's Future Moguls

These breakout artists are setting the bar high.

Forbes have released their newly-named list of Hip-Hop's Future Moguls.

Formerly known as Hip-Hop Cash Princes, Forbes renamed their previously male-focused ranking in order to become more inclusive and celebrate diversity.

The Class of 2018 criteria measures "age, ethnicity and gender", allowing 'Bodak Yellow' chart-topper Cardi B and body-positive soul singer Lizzo to make their way onto the list.

Post Malone features thanks to the record-breaking success of commercial juggernauts 'rockstar' and 'Congratulations', while Lil Pump continues to garner acclaim for his viral hit 'Gucci Gang'.

Malone's 'rockstar' collaborator 21 Savage is also recognised as a future trailblazer alongside Vic Mensa, Playboi Carti and more.

The full list is as follows:

  • Cardi B
  • Playboi Carti
  • Post Malone
  • 21 Savage
  • Lil Pump
  • Vic Mensa
  • Lizzo
  • WondaGurl
  • Tyler, The Creator
  • Dave East
