September Sadness is finally upon us!

Please be advised that convicted felons are allowed to vote.

If you’re a latecomer to the SDN Tournament, please get your brackets here. Without further delay we present the Division A first round matchups!

Two Words. Smart Dumb. Drunk Hot. Ghetto Mess. Negro, Please!

#1 – Kanye West – Smart enough to flip tragedy into the launching point for a lucrative musical career. Dumb enough to genuinely believe he is the second coming of Stevie Wonder or some shit. Smart enough to seize national television stage to request Katrina Clap. Dumb enough to think he could wing attack.

#16 – Mos Def – Smart enough to garner acclaim as one of hip-hop’s finest true lyricists. Very talented actor, poet, public speaker and political activist. Dumb enough to get caught up in skripper baby mama drama like the DDNs he’s denounced throughout entire musical career.

[VOTE @ RON MEXICO CITY]

Fantasy Remix Battle

#8 – Diddy – Smart enough to build Bad Boy into the media empire it had been 10 years ago is today. Dumb enough to make EweToube vlog eliminating any questions regarding lack of education and below-average intelligence.

#9 – O.D.B. – Smart enough to not only be the most unique/eccentric/cracked-out MC you’d ever heard, but to make his style work in any musical format. Possibly figured out the true meaning of life. Drank, smoked and fucked accordingly. Dumb enough to land in prison and crap out on a white horse. Lest we speak of the army of dirties he left behind.

[VOTE @ RON MEXICO CITY]

Battle of the Dope Boys (Get Well Soon, Travis!)

#5 – The Game – Marketing/self-promotion genius. Talented lyricist. Hopeless dickrider. Dumb enough to cover face tattoo with larger face tattoo, then cover that face tattoo with even larger face tattoo.

#12 – T.I. Has enough understanding to excel in rapster community service before court mandate to do so. Denounces dope boy lifestyle in music. Is aware that felons can re-register to vote. Dumb enough to wife Tiny. Dumb enough to buy illegal machine guns in person from ATF agents. [Smart enough to have a rap sheet longer than Cappadonna's "Winter Warz" verse and only catch one-and-one?]

[VOTE @ RON MEXICO CITY]

Vocab Battle (Fugee-Free)

#4 – Lil Wayne – Arguably the wittiest young lyricist in hip-hop today. Dumb enough not to know difference between “air” and “heir.” Provides visual instruction on how to create lean. Smart enough to know it’s going to kill him [as it has several noteworthy southern hip-hop figures] because you ain’t. Refuses to leave Birdman’s poolhouse.

#13 – Ghostface – Wu-Tang’s most clever and charismatic member. Smart enough to make world love his lyrics. Dumb enough whereas few of them make sense outside of his PCP blunt cipher. Popularized term “Smart Dumb Nigga.”

[VOTE @ RON MEXICO CITY]


2 Of Amerika’z Most Wanted Battle

#3 – Snoop Dogg – Smart enough to be one of the greatest lyricists in hip-hop history. Last album exhibits Snoop still has active neurons. Crossover ingenuity proven with “Sensual Seduction” and subsequent video. Dumb enough to think Snoop Dogg Clothing would do anything more than keep homeless warm [in participating shelters, soup kitchens, Goodwill Superstore and Salvation Army locations]. Interviews and reality show appearances prove he’s smoked himself moronic.

#14 – Tupac Shakur – Renaissance man. Talented musician, poet and actor. Created extensive catalogue of insightful music before passing. Dumb enough to let greatest acting role take him away from us.

[VOTE @ RON MEXICO CITY]

#6 – Plies – Creates some of the most ignorant, unintelligible music known to man. Is clearly nowhere near as ignorant as his catalogue portrays. Amazingly so, actually. Provides sound market analysis. Clearly took a 200-level economics course at some point. [See: Adventures of Lil' Jon.]

#11 – Kimora Lee Simmons – Smart enough to stick Blood Diamond Russ good. Gets African soupbone Zulu cane from Mr. Blood Diamond himself. Built Baby Phat empire on BDR’s dime. Dumb enough to get caught blowing Swisher Sweets and throwing middle finger to laws while gripping balls just minutes from her own Russell’s backyard. Smart enough to resist urge to cut record deal.

[VOTE @ RON MEXICO CITY]


Super Battle: Man vs. Head

#7 – Eminem – Arguably hip-hop’s all-time finest lyricist. Figured out how to turn shock-value celebrity into one of the greatest subsidiary empires in music history… on 50 Cent’s back. Will pistol-whip a nigga from atop planet. Convinced himself that people would give a shit about D12.

#10 – Karrine “Superhead” Steffans – Smart enough to capitalize on being ping-pong ball of 90s rap. Smart enough to own rights to alias. Mouth Twitter game CRAZY! Dumb enough to expect same field she slutted around in and blabbed about to respect someone known as “Superhead.”

[VOTE @ RON MEXICO CITY]

Wise God Knowledge Battle

#2 – KRS-ONE – Usually we call “teachers” who never went to school “bum-ass niggas.” In Kris Parker’s case discography has done more good for black community than many actual grade school educators. Unfortunately thinks hip-hop rises and sets in his funky, nappy ass.

#15 – RZA - The King Ruler Zig-Zag Zig Allah suffers from Ghostface Nonsensical Syndrome to an extent. Has been smart enough not only to be brain and engine of Wu-Tang empire, but has also taken nicely to acting. Interviews leave much to be desired in the way of god knowledge that only sounds good after extended dooooololoolooolooololoolololooooooop!

    • iLL G

      aight other than that this shit is fuckin hilarious MEX cant wait to see how it all turns out

  • Michael

    Isn’t Plies more of a dumb smart nigga, in that he sounds completely ignorant and unintelligent on record but in person he speaks like a college graduate.

  • Worley

    This sh*t is hilarious. Where is R. Kelly in all this? If he does not appear, I am still going with Plies to take it all.

    • LEO

      I STILL DONT SEE HOW YA TAKE PLIES OVER SUPERHEAD??? SOMEBODY EXPLAIN

      • Pierzy

        I agree with you dude. Superhead should’ve been a 30 point favorite.

        • Devog

          I see your point, but I think shorty was homeless and sucking dick was paid the rent(…pretty sure she was slobbing knob before but…). Plies on the other hand is ignorant just to make a buck.

          Interviewer: “That’s an interesting name. How did you get it.”

          Plies: “Well it has a variety of meanings. First of all “Plies” is a tool you use to tighten shit. Then it’s term. You know this “Plies” to this.

          Interviewer: “Hold on Plies. I’ve heard of a tool called “pliers”, and the term “applies”. Is that what you meant”

          Interviewer: “Negro Please! You know we dont give a damn about no vocabulary. Now “Plies” that”

          I am Rick Ross, and I approved this message. Ha!

        • DevoG

    LMMFAO….Just reading this shit gave me a stomach ache…..U the best RON straight up!!!

    • TonyStackz

      LOL CO-MOTHAFUCKIN SIGN!!!!!!!

  • DV8

    if Lil Wayne or Superhead dont win this whole tourney something is definately wrong here. I dont understand why RZA has more votes then KRS. KRS claimed he is hiphop, dissed anybody who HE felt wasnt hiphop, but hasnt capitalized as much as he should have. Meanwhile RZA built a empire. Why does Pac have more votes then Snoop? Snoop wasnt smart enough to read his Death Row contract. He is years behind in terms of financial gain, he should be a whole lot more richer then he is. Pac just was a bad judge of character, that doesnt make him dumb. No matter how much bitchassness Game tends to display, He wasnt dumb enough to put himself in the position T.I. did. Everything else I agree with

  • geico lizard

    on the eminem description you forgot to throw in that tape where he calls black women golddiggers and use the n-word.

    • http://www.ronmexicocity.com Ron Mexico

      true. that was a bad look.

      white girls are good. i like white girls…

      ugh.

    • TonyStackz

      Yo man I’ve head bout that shit
      when did that shit happen?? or can anybody tell me where can I find that video

  • John Brown

    RON,

    HISPANIC GIRLS >>> BLACK GIRLS >>> ASIAN GIRLS >>> WHITE GIRLS

    • iLL G

      or u can refer to hispanic women as “latino women” lol even though i think everyone knows its Latina Women, but its ok we forgive u BOL lol

  • Shawty J

    Man, so many of these choice are close calls! I mean Kanye Vs. Mos Def; Game Vs. Tip; ODB Vs. Diddy (Well actually that one is easy as I detest Sean Combs, but still.)

  • EReal

    Am I the only one who thinks Bitchmade Billy X. Dallas Penn Sunday should’ve earned his slovenly drunk fat ass a spot in the tourney, with his holier than thou preechy bullsheit and drunk posts going at commenters calling himself “the god”? That some serious SDN sheit.

    Eh?

    *SMH*

  • DETROIT

    Hey Ron,

    you’ve got to address that j hood vid that was up yesterday! PLEASE PUT THAT LAME ON BLAST!

    • DETROIT

  • Pana

    Im glad this shit finally started! Yo Ron, I discovered that xxl had a blog when I was home sick for about a week a few months back and I gotta say u r THE thoroughEST blogger on here (with Billy a close second). That RZA-KRS match up was difficult tho.

  • http://xxlmag.com dat520

    hey I dont bout yall but I got dmx,flava falv,plies and lil wayne in my final four. Why is mos def losing to kanye he got as many kids as shawn kemp

  • grant ny

    i just done like this guy i think hes wack, okay yes they got to expect hate but he hates too much as in when he made 3 wack posts on the game, 1 bieng the funeral one, he doing a blog about something he knows shit about how he gona tell people what happened, see if he tells is stories if he saw game, and if a blogger gona go that hard he need to back it up and since he never leaves his house probably i bet he cant, this site is good man and BOl and BILLY X go hard but yet keep it cool, this guys just a fuck boy and he runis the site,
    In my oponion anyway.

  • grant ny
