In case they hadn’t already made it abundantly clear, here’s a story that proves Lil Wayne and Birdman used to take the Cash Money thing literally.

Back in the day, long before Weezy was throwing shade at Young Money and suing his former mentor for $51 million, the duo used to make insanely large bets on football games. Not real football, mind you – instead, they’d wager on games of Madden. And to up the ridiculous factor even more, they wouldn’t even pick up a controller to showcase their skills…they’d just pick teams and let the computer take over while they watched.

This is all according to T-Pain, anyway, who said he witnessed it with his own eyes while he was in the studio with them.

“When I used to be in the studio with Lil Wayne and Birdman, they would bet $10,000 a game on Madden, and they would just let the computer play,” said T-Pain while live streaming on Twitch. “They would bet that a team they picked would beat the team that the other guy picked. They didn’t play the game. They just let the computer play both teams. And they would just bet $10,000 on that game. And I thought that was the most ballin’ shit I had ever seen in my life.”

T-Pain didn’t get involved for simple reasons – “I’m not an idiot,” he says. Based on how everything has turned out between Birdman and Lil Wayne, it’s safe to say he made the right decision.
