The rappers used to blow money on games they didn't even play.

There are a lot of ways to gamble your money away, especially when you make millions of dollars, but betting your cash on games of Madden has to be one of the dumbest.

This is exactly what rappers Lil Wayne and Birdman did (back when they liked one another and weren't suing each other), according to T-Pain. During T-Pain's Twitch session Wednesday, he told a story about how the duo would bet insane amounts of money on games they didn't even play.

"They would bet $10,000 a game on Madden and they would just let the computer play each other. They would bet that a team they pick would beat the team that the other guy picked. They didn’t play the game, they just let the computer play each other. And they would bet $10,000 on the game,” T-Pain said.  “And I thought that was the most ballin’ s— I’d ever seen.”

While he admired their willingness to blow money, T-Pain said he wasn't about that life.

“I never got in on the bets because, you know, I’m not an idiot,” he said.
