The rapper-actor cheered on his team as they faced off against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in the NFL playoffs, and 50 Cent was beaming from ear to ear after the visitors triumphed in overtime, beating the California team, 20-17.

The victory was made all the more sweet because it netted him bundles of cash.

The rapper showed off the winnings in a photo posted to his Twitter page, alongside the caption, "Just watched a 500,000 dollar foot ball game... Some times I hear voices in my head they tell me thing. Like bet on GIANTS so I listen."

50 Cent plans to gift the money to his grandmother.

He tweets, "Street king baby I'm a king I do this. I'm giving this money to my nana she gonna faint... all she do is go to the church."
