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.
