American rapper, 50 cent's account was hacked recently, falling victim to a crypto scheme scam.

The rapper took to his Instagram account to reveal that fraudster had made $300 million in 30 minutes by hacking into his Twitter account, as well as Thisis50.com, to promote a cryptocurrency.

“My Twitter & Thisis 50.com was hacked,”  he wrote.

“I have no association with this Crypto. Twitter worked quickly to lock my account back down. Who ever did this made $300,000,000 in 30 minutes,” he alleged.

He claimed that he was hacked by a nefarious cryptocurrency schemer who ended up making millions of dollars in the process.

The musician, whose legal name is Curtis James Jackson III, wrote about the pump-and-dump incident on Instagram recently.

The scammer used the rapper's X account to promote a crypto token called $GUNIT, a reference to G-Unit, a hip-hop group that 50 Cent was previously part of.

The scammer posted this message on Friday: "$GUNIT for winners only…" which led an unknown number of users to buy the coin.

The "Candy Shop" rapper's X account was later locked. His account which, as of Saturday afternoon, was locked, is reported to have been recovered.
