It all started after 50 went on a Twitter gloat rant after his hometown New York Giants defeated the San Fancisco 49ers to move on to the Super Bowl where they'll face the New England Patriots. See, before the NFL season even started, 50 put a bit of money down on the Giants to make it to the big game by season's end. Obviously, he won the bet, and the great early odds meant a payout of $500,000.

Well, Pats supporter Birdman was not to be outdone in the social media meets sports gambling world, tweeting, "I like New England.my nephew play RB# 42.I'm bet 5million 2 any n***a [who] like tha Giants."

Despite how flashy Birdman is, $5 mil seems like an awfully steep Super Bowl bet. Even 50 Cent was hesitant to go that high, but he did respond to Birdman's general challenge, offering up a $1 million bet. While there's yet to be a handshake deal, let's not put it past these two. 50's already up a half mil from his pre-season bet, and Birdman won a million dollars on last year's Super Bowl after putting seven figures on the Packers.

So if you don't know who to root for, and you're a bigger hip-hop than football fan, it's time to pick a side. Who ya got: Cash Money or G-Unit?
