50 Cent’s new album isn’t doing too well critically, but commercially the rapper is trying to take all comers and is even accepting bitcoin as payment for the record.

Exciting news. Bitcoin is hip!

  Lol .0015 the rapper!

  In all seriousness I feel like a lot of music artists are currency agnostic. They don't care how you pay!!!  I believe this will spread more and more out of the creative type's business into more of the "main street" type business. Also don't forget 50 cent owns a lot or all of vitamin water not sure the extent so this could be a test run for his other businesses.

He made most of his money from an investment. Safe to say he's always ahead of the curve.

BTW... 50 cent is not the first rapper to accept Bitcoin. The honor goes to Snoop Dogg.

I think the trouble with "50 Cent" and consumers is that the 50 Cent persona isn't widely realized as a completely satirical figure. Go ahead and find the 50 Cent videogames, particularly Blood on the Sand. It's the most absurd interpretation of Gangsta Rap and American patriotism/exceptionalism out there. It's beautiful art, really. In summary, it's about the rapper (with ridiculous co-playable rapper compatriots, obviously called his "G-Unit") going to the middle east for a concert they're promised $10m for putting on. The fellow's unable to pay, so 50 Cent takes some blinged-out human skull instead. This skull is stolen, and 50 Cent goes on a hilarious rampage, killing thousands of "sand niggers" just to extract payment, and because America. Thoughout this, 50 Cent makes hilarious off-the-cuff quips... there's a particular section where there's a massive cement cylinder suspended and a bit askew in the background, and out of the blue, 50 Cent decided that'd be a good place to shout, straight-faced, "I BET THAT'S NOT OSHA-APPROVED!" I don't often burst out in laughter, and that line delivery sticks in my mind because of it.

Rap in general has been completely misunderstood, I hope (and if not, it's just another arrogant Jewish creation, which is just as fine by me). Body Count, for example, is one of my favorites for a good chuckle. A picturesque environment is painted from the Cosby Show, keeping in mind Bill Cosby is known for growing up in a troubled neighborhood and overcoming it to provide a very "sterile" sitcom to give role models and a kind of stability to the downtrodden... and anyway, he follows the painting with "SHIT AIN'T LIKE THAT!!! IT'S REAL FUCKED UP!!!" The fellow then goes in to talking about his case of hand grenades and whatnot and how - and this is my favorite part - if you should want to know what to do about it, "FUCK YOU!!" (this is an audience-led answer-and-response section in the piece)... It's almost kind of cute and innocent fun compared to typical music and does actually make some decent points, all with this delightfully aggressive melody to back-drop it. I'd just love to see something like a Rap Bible... Moses said unto Jesus, "tell us what to do." FUCK YOU!! World's greatest Mass right there, I think.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Snoop Dogg has yet to actually sell an album for Bitcoin, right? He has just claimed (perhaps jokingly) that he's interested in selling the next one for Bitcoin. Note that he also decided it would be delivered by drone.

Correct, but he hasn't put out an album since the announcement so I think he was saving that for a new album.

Even if he hasn't yet sold an album for Bitcoins, he should be credited as the first rapper to adopt Bitcoin. His announcement had generated a lot of positive PR for the digital currency.
