Cardi B

Hip-Hop dominated this year's chart.

Forbes have released their annual collection of 30 Under 30 lists, and the music round-up features some very familiar faces.

After becoming the first female rapper to top the charts as a solo act since 1998, it's hardly surprising that Cardi B ranked on this years list.

The 'Bodak Yellow' rapper is joined by her fiancé and his fellow bandmates as Migos also feature, partly thanks to their monster hit 'Bad & Boujee'.

Another rapper who can partially credit his rise to superstardom to the same song is Lil Uzi Vert, who joins his chart-topping collaborators on Forbes' new ranking.

Additionally, the real driving force behind his success is arguably his juggernaut 'XO Tour Llif3', which propelled his album 'Luv Is Rage II' to the top of the charts.

At just 19 years old, R&B singer Khalid is one of the youngest acts on the list, while Playboi Carti makes the Top 30 following the success of his infectious track 'Magnolia'.

Travis Scott also sits among his peers, raking in upwards of $100,000 per show, alongside female singer-songwriters SZA and Bebe Rexha. 

Also featured on the critically-acclaimed list are Young Thug, Marshmello, Young M.A. and many more.
