Forbes has officially unveiled this year’s 30 Under 30 list, with Roddy Ricch, Lil Baby and Doja Cat headlining the annual selection’s music category.

The Compton-bred rapper, who is this year’s featured honoree, has had an exciting 2020, winning his first Grammy, dominating the charts with Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial, going viral on TikTok and earning $20 million USD more. “I’ve made more this year than I have ever made in my life—at home,” Ricch told Forbes. “But you can never get too comfortable. I got a million things to do.” The rapper is also currently working on a foundation that will teach financial literacy to the residents of his home city, where only eight percent of the adult population hold a bachelor’s degree. He added, “Investing in Compton just felt like my duty.”

This year’s 30 Under 30 also celebrates Doja Cat and Lil Baby, who are both nominated for the 2021 Grammys, rapper and entrepreneur Saweetie, producer London On Da Track, Polo G who just launched his own label in September, G Herbo and R&B star Brent Faiyaz.
