The Roots Are The Georgetown Hoyas Of This Rap Shit…

If it’s March then it must be time to gamble your student loan money away for a chance to win someone’s NCAA basketball tournament pool. I don’t advocate gambling, but I assume that you folks are adults so here are my Final Four picks for your info…

Georgetown – East
Memphis – South
Tennessee – Midwest
Kansas – West

This is all determined of course by where the selection committee seeds these teams. Memphis and Tennessee are both in the south so one of them is going to have to be in a different bracket. No one is fucking with Memphis this year. G’Town and Uconn are my darkhorse picks to do some upset shit, but as usual I admit that you can’t predict this tournament to save your life.

If rap music were like the NCAA, and I know that is preposterous to say since rap music is 180 degrees from going to college, but bear with me, if rap music were like the NCAA basketball tournament then the Roots crew would be like the Georgetown Hoyas. They aren’t in anyone’s top 10 but these dudes stay winning.

Some of you humps would like to call Jay-Z the Memphis of this shit since they are clearly the best team and since Jay-Z’s fortune is bequeathed to Bleek, but you would be wrong. G-Unit is the Memphis of this rap shit and Jay-Z is like the Connecticut. He’s no longer top 10 but if you get caught sleeping he could make it past the Sweet 16.

I will call Lil’ Wang the Houston of this rap shit. Not the Phi Slamma Jamma Houston, but the current unranked edition.

Stop crying Wang stans, I’ll let your boy be the Xavier of this rap shit.

KanYe West is the North Carolina equivalent since he is ranked number one but he won’t make it all the way to the ‘chip. Everybody likes North Carolina’s powder blue uniforms. UCLA is pretty good too. I think I will make Blu the UCLA of this rap shit since niggas like myself slept on him. As usual, Duke is near the top. That’s NaS right there.

There is a NCAA tournament pool over at DallasPenn Dot Com and the winner gets a FREE pair of Nike Dunks. If you want in just say so.

Not in this thread though you big dummy, over there.
