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.
