Forbes has unveiled their official 30 Under 30 list for 2018, and tons of our favorite names in hip-hop and R&B have made the cut this time around. The outlet’s list features some XXL Freshmen from this year and last year, including Playboi Carti, Lil Uzi Vert, Travis Scott and many more.

The new official list for the music category features those who are topping the charts and shifting the culture. Forbes makes sure to honor artists and musicians themselves, as well as those behind the scenes including managers, choreographers, engineers, producers and agents.

Other major names in hip-hop that fans will recognize on the list include Cardi B, SZA, Young Thug, H.E.R., Khalid, Migos, and even Young M.A. There were also some big wigs in the judges seats for making the list, including singer/songwriter Skylar Grey, managing director Bob Moczydlowsky and Pentatonix member Kevin Olusola.

It’s definitely an incredible milestone for any artist or rising executive to make the cut for Forbes‘ 30 Under 30 list, and alumni members include Drake, The Weeknd, Lil Yachty, Big Sean, Iggy Azalea and plenty more.

Congratulations to all of the rising superstars who made the cut for the 2018 list, which is a great accomplishment for their careers. See the full 30 Under 30 list here.
