Several members of rap’s new generation have landed on Forbes’ 2017 30 Under 30 list. Desiigner, Lil Yachty, Logic are just a few.

The OG pocket-watcher Forbes magazine has compiled their list of the 30 people under the age 30 that are making the most moves in their respective industries. For the Music portion, Hip-Hop is laced all throughout the list with some of your favorite, and least favorite names making appearances.

Desiigner, Lil Yachty, Logic, Tory Lanez, Bryson Tiller, Jeremih, G-Eazy and Joe Kay of Soulection are the names we may recognize off the rip.

In their blurb about Desiigner’s selection, they note that his hit single “Panda” is the obvious reason why. Even they recognized the sound of the song calling it “Future-esque.” Lil Yachty‘s polarizing presence is noted as the reason for his appearance. Logic’s $150,000 per show price tag got him on the list.

In other industries featured, actor LaKeith Stanfield aka Darius from Atlanta landed in the Hollywood & Entertainment category. Kyrie Irving, Von Miller and Odell Beckham, Jr. are included in the Sports area.
