Forbes has released their list of movers and shakers under 30 and Roddy Ricch was chosen as the featured honoree.
Ricch enjoyed a banner year that netted him a cool $20 million and included his first Grammy.
“I’ve made more this year than I have ever made in life – at home,” Ricch told Forbes.
His Album "Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and went on to spent four non-consecutive weeks at the top. Its lead single “The Box” topped Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for eleven weeks and became Roddy’s first No. 1 song, and his second came when he was featured on DaBaby’s top-charting track “Rockstar.”
Other Hip Hop artists named on the list include Lil Baby, Doja Cat, G Herbo, Polo G and Brent Faiyaz, while producers Murda Beatz, London on da Track and Jahaan Sweet also made it.
27-year-old music executive Elliot Grainge was also named for the success of his record label, 10K Projects. The home to Trippie Redd, 6ix9ine, Internet Money, Iann Dior and more pulled in 18 gold and eight platinum or multi-platinum singles that collectively accumulated a total of 22 billion streams in 2020.
