Rappers make 'Forbes' 30 Under 30 In Music list

J. Cole, Drake and Kendrick Lamar are among the young artists earning spots on "Forbes'" annual "30 Under 30" lists. 

In the music category, the magazine praised Cole for becoming a "hip-hop force" who now earns "six-figures per night on his world tour."  They also point out that the 28-year-old Roc Nation artist's second album Born Sinner debuted at number two, solidifying him as an artist who "is here to stay." 

Drake also landed on the list for netting more than $30 million in the past two years through not only his music, but also endorsements with Sprite and Kodak. 

The magazine also placed the 26-year-old Kendrick Lamar on the list for his seven Grammy nominations as well as earning $nine million in 2013.  

Other artists who earned praise by "Forbes" on the "30 Under 30" list include Bruno Mars, who topped the music category and was given a special feature.  Ryan Lewis, Calvin Harris, Janelle Monae, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Rihanna and Katy Perry also made the cut.
