Rappers Wager Tens of Thousands of Dollars on Video Games Just Like the Rest of Us

Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 10.12.11 PMRappers… they’re just like us! Who doesn’t occasionally blow $10K playing Madden with some friends? Normal Thursday night in the Durkin house.

That’s the ridiculous new claim about Lil Wayne and Birdman, a fact that was revealed during a livestream recently hosted by T-Pain. And if all of these names sound utterly foreign to you, all you need to know to get caught up is that these are all absurdly wealthy rappers with tons of money and apparently no f*cks left to give in the world.

And for those of you who think it’s just a little too crazy to wager $10K playing a video game, you’ll be happy to know that both Lil Wayne and his Cash Money Records patriarch Birdman agree with you. That’s why instead of actually playing the games, the two New Orleans originalists simply let the computer decide who wins. In other words, they simply select the teams, and let the CPU-controlled squads duke it while… all for entertainment.

As for the host of event? He wanted nothing to do with it. “I never got in on the bets because, you know, I’m not an idiot,” said T-Pain of the wager.
