Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Drake and Wiz Khalifa are stamped as being one of the brightest stars in music all under the tender age of 30.
Included for their successful album sales, sold out concerts and endorsements, the four heavy hitters can add yet another accolade to their continuously growing resume. For Wiz, this is light work as he claims a spot on this list for the third consecutive year in a row.
