50 Cent filed for bankruptcy back in 2015 in the US but it seems he's doing very well now.
According to TMZ, 50 Cent was the first rapper to accept Bitcoin for an album. He accepted it for his 2014 record Animal Ambition which was basically a flop but now it's made him a decent amount of coin.
He earned 700 bitcoins from the album which at the time was about $463,000. Well, 50 left the money sitting in his account and now it's worth over $7 million. Basically, he accidentally turned one of his least successful albums into a goldmine.
50 has since responded to the story noting, "I'm a keep it real I forgot I did that shit."
It's like finding a $5 note you forgot about in a pocket except it's SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS.
