21 Savage, Russ, Lil Pump, Bad Bunny, Post Malone, Rico Nasty, Juice WRLD, Syd, Jessie Reyez, Zazie Beetz and Skylar Diggins-Smith are some of the names who appear on this year’s Forbes 30 Under 30 List.
The annual list recognizes 600 movers and shakers in various fields such as entertainment, media, tech, STEM and more. This year, members of the hip-hop and R&B games as well as figures in young Black Hollywood can be found.
In the past, figures such as Yara Shahidi, Logic and Kofi Siriboe were included in the list, which according to Forbes chooses game changers who “[embody] how fresh vision, powerful technology and unwavering optimism can combine into earthshaking companies and movements. From finance to food, fashion to philanthropy, these risk-takers are forever changing how America does business.”
Last year, Cardi B, Migos, Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert, SZA, Young Thug and Playboi Carti were some of the big name musicians who were included on the prestigious list.
“Choosing these honorees among thousands of nominees is a long and daunting three-layer process that relies on the knowledge and authority of our wide-reaching community, skilled reporters and expert judges,” Forbes writes. “The result is a dynamic selection of diverse leaders sharing the same audacious goal: change the world.”
