Birdman Plans To Wager $5 Million On The Patriots Beating The Giants

Birdman Plans To Wager $5 Million On The Patriots Beating The Giants
Entertainment


The opening sentence on the bio page of Birdman’s official website reads:

“With all of his elaborate possessions – from jewels to cars and homes; his cash money making ventures- from music to videogames to shoes and clothing; Bryan ‘Birdman aka Baby’ Williams is poised to continue shining in everything he does.”

He once told Forbes magazine he tries to wear $1 million worth of orthodontics and jewelry every day. He keeps at least that much cash under his mattress.

So, no, it’s not surprising that Birdman wants to wager $5 million on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.

The hip-hop artist revealed on Twitter this week that he plans to bet that figure on Tom Brady and the Pats to win next Sunday against the New York Giants. The message was both semi-incoherent, semi-profane and written with capitalization rules normally found in ransom notes, so we won’t link to it here.

Roughly translated, it says: “I like New England because BenJarvus Green-Ellis is my nephew. I plan on wagering $5 million on the game to anyone who wants the action.”

Birdman told Billboard earlier this month that Green-Ellis is his brother’s son and I’m going to take him at his word because he has face tattoos. Still, having family on the team seems like a bad reason to wager 5 percent of your net wealth on the outcome of a game. Somebody is Rex Grossman’s uncle too, you know?

The rapper earned $15 million in 2011 according to Forbes and has been known to talk about his gambling exploits. He says he lost $2 million on a Miami Heat bet last year, but won $1 million on the Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl. Birdman has his sights on bigger wagers in the future. He vowed to bet $10 million on Floyd Mayweather whenever he fights Manny Pacquiao.

Singularity At The Cinema: ‘Transcendence,’ ‘Her’ And Fighting Against The Future

“Transcendence” isn’t a very good movie. It has the setup to be a thought-provoking, sci-fi, action flick, without any real action or thought of which to speak. It’s essentially the last 20 minutes of “Her,” spread glacially over a two-hour-and-twenty-minute run time. The biggest problem with “Transcendence,” however, is that it foregrounds and obsesses over its technology at the […]
