Rapper 50 Cent unknowingly made at least $7 million recently, according to TMZ. In 2014, he became the first musical artist to accept Bitcoin for his album Animal Ambition.

The album had raked in 700 Bitcoin for the rapper, which at the time, was worth about $400,000. But now, since Bitcoin’s value has gone up significantly, 50 Cent is looking at over $7.5 million in earnings from Ambition.

According to a British Bitcoin Profit app report, the rapper joked about the unexpected haul while promoting his new movie Den of Thieves, tweeting, “A little bitcoin anyone? LOL. l know l make you sick but excuse me…I’m getting to the bag.”

The next day, though, he seemed tired the conversation surrounding his earnings. He posted a video to Instagram with the caption “Stop talking about my money, look at this shit. LOL,” still promoting Den of Thieves.

Stop talking about my money,👀look at this shit. LOL#denofthieves #theoath

50 Cent had filed for bankruptcy in 2015 after Lastonia Leviston sued him for leaking a sex tape.

50 Cent started the move to accept Bitcoin in the music world a few years ago, but several artists — including Weezer, Sia and Lana Del Rey — began to accept the cryptocurrency, according to Forbes.
