Hip hop artist Bryan ‘Birdman aka Baby’ Williams announced Monday (Jan. 23) on Twitter that he plans to place a rather large Super Bowl bet. He tweets (in what Shutdown Corner hilariously describes as “semi-incoherent, semi-profane and written with capitalization rules normally found in ransom notes”):
“I like New ENGLaNd.my nephew play RB# 42.I’m Bet 5million 2 any ni**aaa.like tha Giants YMCMB.BabyMoney anybody kan Getit” (edited for profanity).
So it sounds like he’s looking for someone to bet $5 million on the Giants against his $5 million on the Patriots. Perhaps 50 Cent would like some of that action.
In case you were wondering about the “nephew” part, Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis is Birdman’s brother’s son. And YMCMB stands for Young Money and Cash Money Billionaires.
No one should be particularly surprised by this bet. The bio on Birdman’s official website reads in part:
“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. Birdman wears his confidence like a five star general wears his medal of honor.”
