» RELATED: How 50 Cent, rapper and actor, spends his Sundays
The artist is the first rapper to accept the cryptocurrency as payment for his 2014 "Animal Ambition" album, according to TMZ. At the time, each bitcoin was worth $662, leaving 50 Cent with 700 bitcoins valued at approximately $463,000 in sales.
He left the money in his account for years, and the current value of each coin is now $11,000. That brings the musician’s new total to $7 million. And apparently, he didn’t notice until recently.
