50 Cent 'forgot' he had million dollar Bitcoin stash

January 26, 2018

It's happened to you too, I bet.  There you are, minding your own business and you remember - you've got $8million just lying around on the internet.

No?  Ohh... well, 50 Cent has discovered that he is a Bitcoin millionaire, thanks to some long-forgotten album sales.

In 2014, he released the album Animal Ambition (nope, we've never heard of it either) and became the first major artist to accept Bitcoin as payment for his work.

The rapper received more than 700 Bitcoins under the deal, but then forgot about the cryptocurrency, according to celebrity newsite TMZ.
