"I thought that was the most ballingest shit I had ever seen in my life."
As we've seen from many of his interviews, T-Pain is a hilarious dude who knows how to tell a story, and there's probably no one better to reveal Lil Wayne and Birdman's ridiculous gambling practices to the world. While Pain was participating in a Twitch live stream as he played Doom earlier this week, he decided to share a hilarious anecdote from his time spent recording with Wayne. According to the singer, Weezy and Birdman (who were on good terms at the time), would bet $10,000 on video game matches in Madden. If that's not insane enough -- they weren't even playing!
TMZ Sports points to T-pain's story. Read it in full below.
Let me tell y’all a story. Let me tell y’all how rich niggas are. When I used to be in the studio with Lil Wayne all the time and Birdman, Lil Wayne and Birdman would bet money. Lil Wayne and Birdman would bet $10,000 a game on Madden, and they would just let the computer play each other. They would bet that a team they pick would beat the team that the other guy picked, and they didn’t play the game. They just let the computer play each other, and they would just bet $10,000 on that game. I thought that was the most ballingest shit I had ever seen in my life. I never got in on the bets because, you know, I’m not an idiot. I didn’t want to spend all my money. I know them niggas got damn near billions of dollars, so I’m not about to act like I’m in that bracket. I made a few songs here and there, but goddamn!
Of course, it's even funnier to hear it straight from the horse's mouth. Watch T-Pain's broadcast below.
