Bryson Tiller, Desiigner, Lil Yachty Among Forbes' 2017 Hip-Hop Cash Princes
For Tiller, the 23-year-old crooner made his indelible mark on R&B when he released his 2015 effort Trapsoul. With two top-40 songs on his resume ("Don't" and "Exchange"), Forbes revealed that the singer is earning $100,000 a night on the road.
After earning a Grammy nomination for best rap performance, G.O.O.D. Music star Desiigner's stock shot up significantly as his quadruple-platinum single "Panda" completed an extended run to the top of the Hot 100. Tory Lanez also made the cut, as he churned out a platinum-selling single in the infectious "Luv," which earned the Canadian breakout star a Grammy nomination for best R&B song.
D.R.A.M. and Lil Yachty each nabbed a spot on Forbes' Cash Princes list, as the formidable tandem shined in 2016 with their collaboration on "Broccoli," which also earned a Grammy nod. The judges for this year's edition were British rapper Little Simz, TDE president Dave Free and Bay Area vet Too $hort, along with two Forbes staffers.
Forbes included several other rising stars for their 2017 class, such as Isaiah Rashad, Lil Uzi Vert and the U.K.'s Stormzy. Check out the full list, along with more detailed statistics and interviews, right here.
