According to TMZ, 50 Cent has made million off bitcoin thanks to a decision to allow fans to buy his last record Animal Ambition with the cryptocurrency.
50 became the first rapper to allow Bitcoin sales and it’s paid off for him because he’s reportedly earned million off it.
He made 700 bitcoin off the album which amounted to over $400,000 USD at the time. Bitcoin has taken off since 2014 and it means that he know actually has between $7 million and $8.5 million USD worth of bitcoin.
The best part about it is that 50 didn’t even remember that he had them. Someone pointed it out on Instagram to which he responded, “I’m a keep it real I forgot I did that shit.”
It’s a pretty good profit off an album that was his least successful album to date.
50 Cent will be in the country next month for his huge run of outdoor shows. It’s his first tour here since 2011.
