Meet the 2017 class.
Forbes’s 30 Under 30 is a list comprised of 30 twenty-somethings (or younger) who are recognized as leading figures and innovators in multiple industries. It is the most definitive list that shows our youth creating change in the most creative ways possible. In its sixth year, the 30 Under 30 has been released and who would have thought that today’s youngest hip-hoppers would have made the list? Some of them were destined to thrive from the beginning while some were doubted by true hip-hop lovers. But through hard work and perseverance, they’ve succeeded. Kudos to them!
