New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick & Seattle Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll Joint Press Conference

We're down to the last few days before Super Bowl XLIX, when the Seattle Seahawks will battle for their second championship in a row against the still-formidable dynasty of the New England Patriots. The game is almost destined to come down to the wire, with the two teams on paper the closest in quality that they have been in years. Nearly everyone is divided; ESPN's poll of over a million people is currently split 55-45 in favor of the Patriots, while their tally of "Experts' Opinions" is split 25-22 in favor of the Seahawks. Sports Illustrated's staff is even more divided, split evenly 50-50 down the middle on who will take home the Lombardi Trophy.

So it's official: nobody knows anything. But one thing we do know is that rappers love sports almost as much as they love music. XXL reached out to 23 rappers, producers and execs to get hip-hop's take on who will win the Big Game this Sunday. And guess what? The voting was incredibly close. Check out who your favorite artist chose, and make sure you check the results, and our staff pick, at the end. —XXL Staff

I had Seattle to win, but after Deflate-Gate I might have to go with the Pats. Coach Bill fights dirty.

I think the Seahawks will win. It's a very tight matchup, but I think the Seahawks defense will be the deciding factor against the Patriots.

The Patriots because they're not facing the New York Giants. Hopefully Deflate-Gate doesn't affect them mentally.

Seattle all the way! They've been improving, good defense and Russell is a dope quarterback. I really want to see them win. Just asked my dad and he's rooting for them too, so that's who I'm going with.

I got the Seahawks because not only do I feel karma will hit the Patriots, but Marshawn Lynch should be rewarded for his bravery this year.

Marshawn Lynch is my first cousin. That's it's and that's all.

It'll be [a] tough match either way, but I think [the] Seattle defense will have the edge; and because of Marshawn Lynch & Russell Wilson.

I'm taking the Seahawks because they are young, athletic and have a crazy defense. Plus they had a terrible game against my Packers but stayed in it and found a way to win and that kind of fight wins championships.

I think Seattle will win a close one... Russell Wilson is a freak of nature.
