50 Cent won't have to die trying to get rich — thanks to a long-forgotten bitcoin stash, he's already got it covered.

The rapper proved himself a shrewd businessman — or perhaps just a lucky guesser — back in 2014 when he agreed to accept bitcoins as payment for his fifth album, "Animal Ambition."

Though he said at the time he was just trying to "stay with times," the money move has since paid off in a big way.

TMZ reports that 50 — whose real name is Curtis Jackson — earned about 700 bitcoins, which today is valued at anywhere between $7 to $8.5 million.

50 Cent is a bitcoin millionaire, even though he forgot about it for a few years.

At the time, each coin was worth around $662, though fans were able to purchase the album by forking over just a fraction of an entire coin.

Back in 2014, the rapper’s cryptocurrency collection was worth more than $400,000 — but in the years since, the bitcoin’s value has skyrocketed, leaving 50 with an impressive chunk of change.

In a since deleted Instagram, the rapper, 42, gave himself a pat on the back for his slick investment.

"Not Bad for a kid from South Side, I'm so proud of me," he wrote with moneybags emojis alongside a screenshot from the TMZ article. "I'm a keep it real. I forgot that I did that s--t."

"A little bitcoin anyone? LOL. I know I make you sick but excuse me…I'm getting to the bag," he added on Twitter.

The rediscovered bitcoin collection should serve the "In da Club" rapper well; in 2015, he filed for bankruptcy protection, though creditors were left scratching their heads after he shared an Instagram photo flaunting massive piles of cash in a refrigerator, according to NPR.
