50 Cent Forgot He Was Paid In Bitcoin For Album, Turns Out He's $9 Million Richer

Rapper, producer, actor, entrepreneur, and now 50 Cent can add accidental millionaire to his resume.

Fiddy, aka Curtis Jackson, was reportedly paid in bitcoin for his 2014 album Animal Ambition, a move that he forgot about until recently.

TMZ reported that he was paid 700 bitcoin for the album, which at the time was valued around a respectable $500,000.

But Fiddy forgot about his bitcoin fortune until January this year, where it is now worth around $9.4million...

The rapper took to Instagram to comment on the discovery.

Post

“Not Bad for a kid from South Side, I’m so proud of me. LOL," he wrote.

He then followed up with a comment confirming that he had completely forgot that he was sitting on a $9.4million fortune.

 

Not a bad pay day for an album that peaked at 187 in the Billboard charts...
