They take their label names pretty seriously.

Before the father and son of southern rap were embroiled in a $51 million dollar lawsuit against each other, the two would bet high wagers on Madden NFL games for sport.

Rappers Lil Wayne and Birdman would gamble as much as $10,000 on the game, artist T-Pain shared on the Twitch streaming service on Thursday. 

And if the five-digit figures aren’t crazy enough, there’s a twist.

"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," T-Pain said.

He says the two wouldn’t even pick up a controller to steer their fate.

“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," he said.

T-Pain says he couldn’t get their version of fantasy football, and he certainly didn't join in on the gambling.

"I'm not an idiot," he said.

Wayne sued Birdman in January 2015, accusing his mentor of violating their contract for withholding revenue from Wayne’s Carter V. The two have recently made it into each other’s good graces, but the lawsuit still stands. Wayne also filed a lawsuit in March against Universal for unpaid royalties from artists he says he discovered, like Drake and Nicki Minaj.

Madden 15 has a hilarious glitch that's almost impossible to see
Cleveland Browns rookie Christian Kirksey is an early standout on Madden 15. The first-year linebacker has unreal burst and strength for a player listed at 1'2". Thing is, Kirksey is 6'2" (and not a Tennessee Titan) in real life—making the “Tiny Titan” glitch the most adorable moment in Madden history—and the funniest since that one time that Greg Jennings scored on the Saints with a broken leg.
