Cash Money Records' Baby a.k.a. Birdman has wasted no time in running through his Super Bowl XLV bet by cashing in the $1 million earnings on a luxury Maybach vehicle.
Although the Super Bowl was less than a week ago, Baby said he has since spent his entire prize.
"I already spent that money [on] a Landaulet Maybach," Birdman revealed in an interview. "My son [Lil Wayne] is a Green Bay fan -- I'm a diehard Saints fan, but he's a die-hard Green Bay fan. So I just went hard. And I believed Green Bay was going to win, they pulled it off. My son knows a lot of about sports, so I was just like whatever he's going to rock with I'm going to rock with hard." (XXL Mag)
Following the Green Bay Packers' win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baby took to his Twitter account to boast about the win.
"Ymcmb birdman 1mill....paint tha t0wn red.greenbay in beast m0de.we tha business," Birdman tweeted Sunday (February 6) evening.
"Milli0n d0lla we tha business YMCMB.birdman bmjr. LETS GO PAINT THE TOWN RED... JUST CASHED IN A MILLI S/O TO THE GREEN BAY PACKERS.....LONG HAIR DONT CARE GREEN AND YELLOW..PAINT THE TOWN RED ... CHING CHING U DUCKS ... CHING CHING SEND THAT.... WHERE'S MY PACKERS FANS??"

Details of Birdman's million dollar bet hit the Internet prior to the Super Bowl game.
Bryan Williams tells Dallas radio that he's got a "mill ticket" riding on Lil Wayne's preferred contender in tonight's Super Bowl XLV. Last week, Birdman appeared at Dallas, Texas' K104 FM station with DJ Khaled, and hinted that he's got a million dollars riding on tonight's Super Bowl XLV contest. "If you listen to us, you'll feel us," said the former Big Tymers rapper. Continuously repeating the term "mill ticket," the executive-turned-rapper boasted that he and his associates live a life of grandeur. "A mill ticket, man, figure it out." (Hip Hop DX)
In support of the Packers, Lil Wayne recently dropped a "Green & Yellow" anthem.
Lil Wayne is clearly a huge fan of the Green Bay Packers football team. So much so, that he's taken "Black and Yellow" -- the Wiz Khalifa-helmed anthem for the Pittsburgh Steelers -- and remixed it to a Packers-inspired track titled "Green and Yellow." Perfect timing for Sunday's Super Bowl Game, where the two teams will face off for the NFL championship. (Billboard)
