Forbes Names 2015 Hip Hop Cash Princes

By HHL Editors

Forbes Magazine is known for its annual Hip Hop Cash Kings list, which ranks everybody in the rap game by how much they earn.

Forbes has been doing a Cash Prince list, too, and its second annual version came out today. Here the methodology is a little different. Instead of simply ranking on earnings, this is a list of under 30 Hip Hop artists which a panel of judges believes are the most promising.

This year's Hip Hop Princes are Mike Will Made it, Migos, Rae Sremmurd, DJ Mustard, Young Thug, Nipsey Hussle, Iggy Azalea, Ty Dolla $ign, Hit-Boy, YG, PartyNextDoor and Kid Ink.

According to Forbes, "This year’s list was selected by a panel of expert judges including Cash Princes alum Tyga, Cash Kings alum DJ Khaled, Hot 97 Morning Show host Peter Rosenberg, Forbes staff writer Natalie Robehmed and senior editor Zack O’Malley Greenburg." Those who made the list last year weren't eligible again.

What do you think of their selections?
