50 Cent accidentally made $8 million in bitcoin

In 2014, rapper 50 Cent let people buy his album Animal Ambition using bitcoin. He then let his account lie unused for years, and only just recently discovered that he’s now a bitcoin millionaire, as first reported by TMZ.

At the time, a single bitcoin was worth only $662, and the rapper’s fans could pick up the album for a fraction of that. In total, he pulled in over $400,000. Since then, the value of bitcoin has soared: the price of the cryptocurrency rose as high as $17,000 earlier this month, only to drop under $10,000 in recent weeks. (At the time of writing, bitcoin is now worth a little more than $11,000.) After sitting untouched in his account for years, 50 Cent’s earnings are now worth $7 million to $8.5 million, based on the current fluctuating bitcoin valuation.

Bitcoin evangelists on Twitter were quick to respond to 50 Cent, pitching him the various crypto platforms and coins that he should check out next. One of them even joked that 50 Cent would like the coin DeepOnion because it used to be valued at fifty cents.

50 Cent is just one of many people who acquired bitcoin, only to forget about it. He’s lucky that he remembered his login info — many others have forgotten their old account logins and lost out on potential wealth, which will forever be locked away due to the nature of cryptocurrency.

Eminem Teases Possible New Single Called ‘Walk On Water’

He also seemingly confirmed his new album will be titled ‘Revival.’

Eminem has seemingly confirmed the title of his upcoming album. After weeks of rumors and fake prescription ads popping up for the drug “Revival,” Em posted a mysterious image to his social media of a “Revival” prescription note on Wednesday (Nov. 8) and teased a possible new single off his highly-anticipated album.

The “Revival” prescription note follows the same design as the fake ads that began to circulate on the internet back in October. The note simply read, “‘Walk On Water'” and “Take as needed” with a website link at the bottom of the page.

If you head to the website and quickly examine the content, you’ll find a list of health conditions the prescription drug Revival is supposed to treat. “Tell your doctor about all health conditions, including if you: Have a history of confusion or poor judgment; Are allergic to midwestern tympanic stimulators; Are pregnant or nursing,” the list reads.

While Em hasn’t officially announced the title of the album or release date for “Walk On Water,” he’s set to appear on Saturday Night Live on Nov. 18 and should likely have some new music to share by then .

“The End”

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the endOf our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I’ll never look into your eyes…again

Can you picture what will be
So limitless and free
Desperately in need…of some…stranger’s hand
In a…desperate land

Lost in a Roman…wilderness of pain
And all the children are insane
All the children are insane
Waiting for the summer rain, yeah

There’s danger on the edge of town
Ride the King’s highway, baby
Weird scenes inside the gold mine
Ride the highway west, baby

Ride the snake, ride the snake
To the lake, the ancient lake, baby
The snake is long, seven miles
Ride the snake…he’s old, and his skin is cold

The west is the best
The west is the best
Get here, and we’ll do the rest

The blue bus is callin’ us
The blue bus is callin’ us
Driver, where you taken’ us

The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on
He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall
He went into the room where his sister lived, and…then he
Paid a visit to his brother, and then he
He walked on down the hall, and
And he came to a door…and he looked inside
Father, yes son, I want to kill you
Mother…I want to…fuck you

C’mon baby, take a chance with us
C’mon baby, take a chance with us
C’mon baby, take a chance with us
And meet me at the back of the blue bus
Doin’ a blue rock
On a blue bus
Doin’ a blue rock
C’mon, yeah

Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end

It hurts to set you free
But you’ll never follow me
The end of laughter and soft lies
The end of nights we tried to die

This is the end

10 Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About Sublime’s Bradley Nowell (Pictures)

SUBLIME: Everybody in the punk scene knows who Bradley Nowell was. Whether you’ve been a huge fan of Sublime, or the ska punk scene, you probably know a bit about this deceased singer and guitarist. To test the extent of your knowledge, we thought it would be fun to put together a list of 10 things most people probably don’t know about the dude who brought us “Santeria”, “What I Got”, and “Date Rape”.

1. After his parents divorced Bradley was such a trouble maker his mom gave up custody and sent him to live with his father at the age of 12.

2. He was introduced to reggae and dancehall music after his father took him on a trip to the Virgin Islands.

3. Nowell dropped out one semester short of earning a degree in Finance from the California State University, Long Beach.

4. After having a hard time booking gigs due to the band’s eclectic style, Nowell formed Skunk Records so he could tell Southern California venues he was a “Skunk Records” recording artist in hopes they’d be more open to letting them play.  The label put out Sublime’s first few recordings.

5. His pet dalmatian Lou Dog became known as Sublime’s mascot and was named after his grandfather.  He was known to roam the stage during live shows (the dog, not the grandfather).

6. Nowell and his band recorded their debut album “40oz. To Freedom” for free by sneaking into the California State University, Dominguez Hills after it closed, hiding from patrolling security guards, and sneaking out before it opened.

7. Brad was a fan of old school rap singer Just-Ice, and cited the rapper’s 1989 album “The Desolate One” as one of his favorite albums.

8. Brad was clean for over a month before his death of a heroin overdose on May 25th, 1996; he had tried to quit cold turkey the night before the band’s show in Boston on April 10, 1996.

9. He died a week after marrying his longtime girlfriend Troy Dendekker.

10. Bradley never saw the success of Sublime’s final album, which was originally going to be called “Killin’ It”. He died two months before its release and it seemed more appropriate to give it an eponymous title.
