50 Cent knows what it takes to make a classic album, and he has advised the next generation of artists not to rush perfection.

50’s 2003 debut Get Rich or Die Tryin’ reached yet another Spotify streaming milestone recently, as it crossed the four billion stream mark.

The G-Unit boss took to social media on Sunday (November 5) to reflect on his latest accolade and give some advice for younger rappers.

“See why I be saying take your time make it a classic. Over 4 billion Spotify streams,” he captioned the post.

“50 you had me wanting to get shot so bad man,” one fan joked in the comment section.

Another added: “And The worlds population is 8 billion ….do the math. The [GOAT].”

The rewards continue to pour in for 50. Earlier this year, “In Da Club” joined the billionaire club when the track surpassed a billion Spotify dreams.

“Take your time make it a classic then it won’t go away,” 50 wrote back in June.

Earlier this week, 50 earned his first diamond plaque, as that same song made history, becoming the 43rd rap track to reach diamond status.

“In Da Club has officially reached Diamond 10,000,000 singles sold,” he wrote to IG. “The 43rd Hip Hop song to go Diamond, 121 songs of all time to do it. I feel good, I’m that thing 50cent.”

Earlier this year, 50 Cent celebrated GRODT turning 20 by making a slew of special edition vinyl pressings available to fans.

For one week only, fans had the chance to purchase a “personally autographed” LP of Get Rich or Die Tryin’ via his website.

“20 years ago today, I dropped the largest debuting hip hop album of all time,” 50 wrote on Instagram in February. “Here’s Your chance to Own a piece of History! Get your Autographed ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’ Albums Today. Available for the next 7 Days.”
