SZA, Travis Scott, Cardi B, Migos and More Land On Forbes ’30 Under 30′ List
Forbes has dropped their annual 30 Under 30 list for 2018, and a bevy of hip-hop and R&B stars have made the cut.
The mega list features 600 prominent young stars in 20 different industries, including Art & Style, Food & Drink, Enterprise Technology, Education, Healthcare and more. This year’s music list is full of stars recognizable to hip-hop and R&B fans. Among those featured in the category are Cardi B, Playboi Carti, H.E.R., SZA, Khalid, Lil Uzi Vert, WondaGurl, Migos, Young M.A. and Travis Scott among others.
Of course, every artist on the aforementioned list has had a stellar year in music. H.E.R. (20) continues to showcase her impressive musical talent, playing numerous instruments during her sold-out live shows, all while keeping an air of mysteriousness since she never shows her face. Her latest release, Vol. 2: The B-Sides dropped late last month.
SZA (28) has had a breakout year as well, propelled by the release of her full-length debut, CTRL, an intimate glimpse into the aches and pains of relationships. Two songs from the album, “Love Galore” featuring Travis Scott (who is also on the list) and “The Weekend’ have both earned platinum status.
Cardi B (25) has found success with her chart-topping hit, “Bodak Yellow,” which broke Billboard chart records, while Travis Scott (26) and Migos have continued their wave of popularity with new releases, tours and guest spots with big names. Also on the list is 21-year-old WondaGurl, who after breaking into the scene at 16 with production credit on JAY-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail, has continued working with big names including Drake, Rihanna and Big Sean.
