Forbes' annual 30 Under 30 Music List is a predication of who's going to show up later in the money mag's more important lists -- such as Cash Kings.
They just dropped their 2016 version, which includes 10 Hip Hop figures.
They are ScHoolboy Q (29), Fetty Wap (24), Slim Jimmy and Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd (23 and 22), The Weeknd (25), Kehlani (20), Boi-1da (29), Metro Boomin (22), TDE President Dave Free (28) and TDE producer MixedByAll (26.)
You can only make the list once, which is why you don't see names like Drake (29) or Kendrick Lamar (28), who have been honored in past years.
The list was determined by Forbes' editors and judges Mac Miller, Gary Clark Jr., Zach Isher (agent) and Kim Kaupe (music entrepreneur).
The full list is here.
