Official matchups will post Sunday.

Thanks again, and good luck.

    Damn, I thought my nomination for ‘flavor of love contestants’ would make it, but its cool maybe next year.

    I think Soulja boy is a sure winner, especialy after the Megan Good twitter, his either a true DDN or ghey as that SOHH blogger. Probably a combination of both.

  • El Tico Loco

    Is Rick Ross in the west by design? Meaning you think he’s gonna get far enough to get in a good matchup down the line?

    • Omar

      I think it’s like the tourney where both Pitt and UConn deserve and get #1 seeds so the better team plays closer to home. Soulja Boy is probably the #1 overall seed so he gets his home region, Ross while deserving of a #1 has to be shipped West

        i was just gonna say tat the south got this ddn game so on lockdown, that they even got a represntative seeding the shit outta the west. Same with sarah palin…we all know alaska is basically like a cold-ass alabama with polar bears and eskimos

          cold-ass alabama. hahahahaha. nice.

          ain’t joker the bailbondsman from out there?

          speaking of joker da bailbondsman… no bizzy bone nominations?

          daaaaaamn, homie.

  • Omar

    I think Chris Brown should be #1 in the East. He was supposed to be the next Michael Jackson and I’m pretty sure his career is going to be over now. Jim Jones would be a fair #2 but Prodigy is definately a sleeper for getting whooped by Saigon, getting locked up, having Crooked I wait for him to get out to beat his ass. Everything else is straight though.

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

      it was impossible to put everyone in their actual regions and make it fair still. it’s kinda like the NCAA in that the regions don’t REALLY mean what you’d think, but for you guys we tried a little.

      thanks for all the input so far.

    Bernie Madoff is not a DDN he’s a SDN. Too bad you missed it. To make off with that much people’s money you’ve got to have some smarts… besides that this list is pretty on point.

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

      believe me, i’m hear you. we got reasons why the dumbness outweighs the smart enough, though. there’ll be explanations.

      we’ll also explain why a couple SDNs regressed.

    • DevoG

      He kept most that money in one, I repeat one, Bank of America account. That’s makes him DDN eligible.

    This bracketology is on point. Rawse is the #1 seed in a region of numbskulls…should prove interesting. Tyga and Suge Knight are battle tested; while the Stallionaires get no style points.
    Young Berg and Soulja Boy Tellem dominated the regular season.
    OJ Da Juiceman gets a solid ranking at #7 along with Kwame holding down #6.
    Jonesy runs away with it in the East bracket…
    … Clark Smelloge has the match-up analyst

  • wat-wat-watt

    4give me but what does DDN mean?

  • Master Cheef

    Why is bow wow not on here for walking around like he’s the hardest nigga alive and for being involved in the most rediculous beef with solja boy?

    Earlier, Ron Mexico had a competition for who was the smartest dumb nigga. DDN is for the dumbest dumb nigga. (I know, right.)

  • Master Cheef

    Fat joe for thinking he will ever make another cent off of another rap cd.

    every single one of those lames that were featured in the future leaders of the game issue (charles hamilton, kid dudi, and the likes) for thinking that was meaningful in any way or that they will ever be worth the charmin they wipe their ass with.

  • render

    Joaquin Phoenix is my cinderella pick

    but who knows tho…this rap career shit might just be a hoax which would make him a sdn for all the free publicity hes makin off it

    Jim Jones is the louisville of ddn’s right now tho
