Birdman Bets $2 Million on Miami Heat

The rap heavyweight hopes to cash in on Miami victory in NBA Finals

Published June 2, 2011

When you're ballin' like Brian "Baby" Williams a.k.a Birdman, the NBA finals represent more than just great basketball: they're big money. The Cash Money Records impresario has decided to make this year's showdown between the Miami Heat and the Dallas Mavericks a little more interesting, reportedly wagering $2 million dollars on the LeBron James-led Heat.

"YMCMBu$iness I Bet. 2million on tha MiaMi Heat," Birdman tweeted, referencing his Young Money/Cash Money crew. Obviously confident in his odds—and the skills of Lebron James and Dwyane Wade—the Big Tymer says he's going to use his winnings to get his roll on.

"Goin bye me another muthafkin WHip.we tha BusiNESS.I'm on 1.mula krazy," he tweeted.

If Birdman has his eyes on a ride anything like the last one he reportedly acquired just last month, an $8 million Maybach Excelero, he'll certainly need the winnings. Perhaps he's been emboldened by previous gambling successes. The rapper/entrepreneur said he won $1 million on this year's Superbowl champs, the Green Bay Packers.
