Lil Wayne and Birdman Bet $10,000 on AI vs. AI Matches in Madden

T-Pain said he never got in on the betting because "I'm not an idiot."


During a recent livestream for Doom, rapper T-Pain shared a crazy story about Lil Wayne and Birdman and how they apparently bet $10,000 on Madden games they didn't even play.

According to T-Pain (via TMZ), Lil Wayne and Birdman each chose a team and then sat back and watched the match play out--all with $10,000 on the line.

"When I used to be in the studio with Lil Wayne and Birdman, Lil Wayne and Birdman would bet $10,000 a game on Madden--and they would just let the computer play each other," T-Pain explained. "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 player each other. And they would just bet $10,000 on that game."

"I thought that was the most ballingest shit I've ever seen in my life."

T-Pain said he never got in on the betting because "I'm not an idiot." From the way he put it, it sounds like the Lil Wayne/Birdman Madden matches happened more than once.

His Doom livestream last night was apparently the rapper's first Twitch stream, and it was even promoted by Bethesda. You can watch a rebroadcast of it here.

Lil Wayne and Birdman may not be friends anymore. Hotnewhiphop has a timeline for the Lil Wayne vs. Birdman back-and-forth.
