Antonio Brown is apparently back to getting a big bag since leaving the NFL, after flexing a six-figure check that he said he got for rapping.
The former NFL wide receiver shared a pic of the check to Twitter on Sunday (October 9), which read the amount of $150,000. “I get paid to rap #PutthatshitOn,” Brown wrote in the caption.
Brown released his album Paradigm earlier this year, which sported big-name features from Fivio Foreign, Young Thug, DaBaby and others.
He then followed it up with a picture of another check for $250,000, which he claimed was paid to him as part of his new unreleased song featuring Lil Wayne.
“I get paid to Rap Paid To Snap Ryan Kane STB is not secure this is a stop payment for my new track feat lil wayne report truth it’s unethical per source Cab Records Inc C A B hol on wait,” Brown wrote.

The former post was reshared by Akademiks in the comment section of which DJ Vlad noted the Secure The Bag record label was the same company currently suing the former NFL player for $500,000.
A Florida music promotor filed suit against Antonio Brown on October 6, claiming he tricked them out of a $500,000 payment by saying it was for Lil’ Wayne.
According to AllHipHop, the suit, which was filed in the Sarasota County Circuit Court, claims that Brown used Weezy’s name to procure a contract for $100,000. Furthermore, the complaint accuses Brown of breaching an “exclusive artist agreement” between the two parties. It also accuses Brown of selling the company’s owner, Ryan Kane, a fake watch that he said was worth $160,000.
The suit goes on to say that Brown allegedly defrauded Secure the Bag Entertainment out of $175,000 in fake expenses and that he made lewd sexual and racial comments to several executives, who said they felt threatened by said comments.
Brown allegedly rented a Los Angeles recording studio for $87,000 for five hours and committed to spending about $8,500 to fly in his crew on a private jet. He then refused to pay those expenses back, with Kane referring to Brown in the suit as a “liar and a thief.”
Kane’s company had initially agreed to shoot a video for “Cracked,” the song Brown did with Lil Wayne, and the former claimed he’d receive the latter’s payment of “$250,000 in cash,” which he’d give to Tunechi himself. Brown then allegedly threatened Kane, saying the check “better be good.”
In a previous interview with HipHopDX Antonio Brown spoke admirably of Lil Wayne and said Weezy has been an inspiration to the pro baller who raps under the moniker AB.
“I remember bumping Lil Wayne’s Drought and Sqad Up mixtapes,” he said. “That’s when Lil Wayne was showing you that his craft was for real. I had the same feeling [walking off the field in January].”
