Fetty Wap Tops Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Princes List

  /  02.09.2016

Prepare the throne. Forbes has announced its Hip-Hop Cash Princes list for 2016, a look at rap acts who have the potential to earn Cash King status.

Fetty Wap leads the list, which was put together by Hit-Boy, Charlamagne Tha God, Atlantic Records chief Craig Kallman, and Forbes staffers. Thanks to his slew of hits including “Trap Queen,” “679,” “Again,” and “My Way,” Fetty had a tremendous kick-start to his career.

“He’s earned two Grammy nominations and seems to have solidified himself as one of the big names in hip-hop going forward,” said Forbes writer Zack O’Malley Greenburg.

This list isn’t reserved just for the fellas, as DeJ Loaf proves. The 24-year-old Detroit MC is building on the success of her 2014 hit “Try Me” and her EP #AndSeeThatsTheThing, which got as high as No. 47 on the Billboard 200 in 2015.

G-Eazy, Logic, Joey Bada$$, Metro Boomin, and Little Simz also appear on the list. Check out a full run-down of the Cash Princes below.
