Two Bay Area Rappers, Lil Dicky and G-Eazy, Make Forbes’ ‘Hip-Hop Cash Princes’ List

The magazine's latest list predicts which rappers under 30 might have the potential to one day lands on its "Hip-Hop Cash Kings" list.


Two Bay Area rappers have been recognized as having high-earning potential in the future.

San Francisco's Lil Dicky and Oakland's G-Eazy are on the radar of a panel of music industry luminaries and editors at Forbes, who think they have a shot at earning multimillion dollar paychecks.

Forbes released its third "Hip-Hop Cash Princes" list on Tuesday, a prediction of 10 rappers and producers under age 30 who have the potential to land on its "Hip-Hop Cash Kings" list, for now topped by Sean "P. Diddy" Combs with estimated annual earnings of $60 million.

Lil Dicky's rhymes are based in comedy and don't cover the usual materialistic trappings of rap.

"You don't hear a guy [in rap] talking about frugality, I really do take pride in it," he told the publication.

Both are playing close to home this week.

G-Eazy will perform live at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco on Thursday; tickets are $39.50.

Lil Dicky is scheduled to appear at San Francisco's Ruby Skye on Friday; tickets are $45.
