The track, which was the debut single from his album, Get Rich or Die Tryin’, reached the milestone on Monday.

The video that reached one billion views is a remastered version that was uploaded to YouTube in 2009.

“1 Billion views. Not Bad for a kid from South Side. LOL,” the rapper tweeted on Monday.

In Da Club isn’t new to accolades, as it topped the Billboard Hot 100 back in 2003. The music video, which was directed by Philip Atwell, won Best Rap Video at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards. 50 Cent received the award for Best New Artist at the same ceremony.
