50 Cent is always figuring out ways to make money even if that means going to bankruptcy court to save his money.
In this case he was on top of Bitcoin before it became a thing. TMZ breaks it down.
Rewind to 2014 and 50’s album, “Animal Ambition,” when the rapper became the first to accept bitcoin — which was then valued at around $662/bitcoin — as payment for his work. We’re told customers could get a copy of the album for just a fraction of a whole bitcoin.
Our sources say “Animal Ambition” pulled in about 700 bitcoin in sales … over $400k. We’re told the cryptocurrency sat dormant in his account for years.
Fast-forward to today — when bitcoin’s value has fluctuated between $10k and $12k per coin. Turns out 50 is a money genius … sitting on anywhere between $7 million and $8.5 million.
Straight cash homie.
