50 Cent lucked out with millions in the recent bitcoin boom, it has been revealed.

The rapper, who was discharged from bankruptcy a year ago, became the first artist in his genre to allow bitcoin payments in 2014.

His 2014 album, ‘Animal Ambition’, raked in around 700 bitcoins worth approximately $662 each.

50 Cent, otherwise known as Curtis James Jackson III, wrote on Instagram: “Not Bad for a kid from South Side, I’m so proud of me.”

However, he also commented admitting that he’d forgotten he even owned the coins, and was only reminded of the cryptocurrency savings when TMZ pointed out the added value.

The price volatility of bitcoin proved one of the biggest business stories of 2017, leading one company to create a sex toy that changes its intensity according to the value of the cryptocurrency.

Earlier this month, 50 Cent once again criticised Jay-Z’s latest album 4:44, claiming that he was “talking down” to the kids.

He said he felt like the Fresh Prince of Bel Air’s Carlton Banks whilst listening to the record.

He has previously described 4:44 as “golf course music.”

Elsewhere in the interview, he compared Kanye West to Donald Trump and claimed the US president had been borrowing from rap culture with his attitude.
