Last winter, Baby won an ample earning after betting $1 million on the Green Bay Packers winning the Super Bowl.
"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??"

In summer 2010, Lil Wayne boasted about Miami Heat's LeBron James joining the team and how vital it was to win a championship.
"Oh Lebron! The recent move by the Miami Heat confirms that we will someday soon have that good ole basketball back with all due respect to the Lakers-Celtics 7 game series. This move reminds me of the days when it was Johnson, Worthy, and Jabbar vs. Bird, Parrish, and McHale, or Thomas, Dumars, and Lambeer. Well now we have Bryant, Gasol, Bynum, and Pierce, Allen, Garnett, and ultimately, Wade, bosh, and James! Do expect this to become "protocol" to win an NBA title. As for many more teams have and will be stacking their rosters with stars. I believe that this Miami team will be explosive as intended. Anything less than an NBA championship title will be uncivilized. 72-10 anybody?" (Weezy Thanx You)
As of now, the Miami Heat lead the Dallas Mavericks series 1-0.
