Sunday, Feb 6, 2011 1:24PM
Cash Money Records' Birdman will be watching tonight's Super Bowl match-up against the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers with a million dollar bet on the line.
According to Birdman, his milli will be placed on the perceived underdog Green Bay Packers.
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)
West Coast rapper Game is also putting his trust in the Packers.
While the majority seem to be siding with Pittsburgh (not includingLil Wayne, of course), outspoken L.A. rapper the Game is putting all his chips behind the Green Bay Packers. "'Green and yellow, green and yellow,'" the Game told MTV News. "They got the G's on they helmet. You gotta go with the team with the G's on their helmet." (MTV)
Last year, Birdman said he was in negotiations to become an owner of the Miami Dolphins.
Reports are surfacing that owner Stephen Ross is looking to add to his VIP minority boardroom, and the latest candidate is none other than the Birdman, a founding father of Cash Money Records and the man who discovered Lil Wayne. "It's in [the] works," he told Angela Yee on the Morning After Show on Sirius Radio. "You have to get clearance from the NFL and we're waiting for clearance. Once we get clearance, we good."
