2010 DN Tournament Nomination Ceremony

You’ve waited long enough. It’s time to get the 2010 DN Tournament started. Welcome to the most wonderful time of the NP year.

The DNCAA selection committee has decided to eliminate the SDN and DDN distinctions. Instead, we’re going to toss all of our niggas–smart-dumb and dumb-dumb alike–into a single battle royale. Ideally, we’ll have 64 seeds separated into 4 regional brackets.

[Blogger’s Note: The brackets will be named for regions, but not necessarily consist of seeds from those regions. You know, kinda like the NAACP one in March. NAACP… Them’s the ones who handle the athletics, right?]

This is where we’ll need your help, loyal NP readers. To start next Monday January 18, we will need a field of 64 contestants. I’ll accept your nominations here on XXLMag.com, at Ron Mexico City (where voting will take place), and via email. The 64 best-represented DNs will be announced Saturday, January 16, 2010.

Just to get you started, here are twenty of this year’s automatic entries:

Gilbert Arenas
Lil’ Wayne
Lil’ Boosie
Tiger Woods
Bow Wow
Gucci Mane
O.J. Da Juiceman
WSHH Content
WSHH Comments
Ron Artest
R. Kelly
Hurricane Chris
Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em
Kanye West
Joe Budden

All further nominations will be appreciated.

Speaking of Lil’ Wayne, I was going to write about Lloyd Banks today until I came across a song in the XXLMag.com Bangers section. For those who are unaware, the Bangers section is the section for bangers… section.

There have been dumb songs with redundant descriptions there since forever. However, I don’t know if ever in my life I’ve come across some depraved shit the likes of “Whip it Like a Slave.” I understand how such a theme can make its way to being a cute little punchline for an uneducated, out-of-touch rapper. I don’t know how even a desperate, god-awful microphone molester like Boo Rossini could think to make it a title. I do know how to get Lil’ Wayne to feature, though. Aspiring rapsters, take note. You have about one month to put cocaine in a stripper’s vagina, slap her on the ass and set her loose around Lil’ Wayne. Lock that guest verse down before… Shit. No pun intended, there. I promise.

Whip it Like a Slave?! Word, nigga? Needless to say, they’re talking about cocaine too. As if the irony didn’t need to be brought full circle, we go from the physical captivity of slavery to the mental and cultural corrosion brought about by the rise of drugs in America to the physical captivity of prison. Ask Buju Banton.

Oh, shit. Add Buju Banton to the list of automatic entries.

    imo, chris brown and gilbert arenas have to top this list (i like cb, but he was a fool to get with rhianna, imo and i like gilbert also, but how dumb can u possibly be??).

      chris brown… IN. for some reason i thought that shit happened late 2008. good call.

      • geico lizard

        Gilbert is about to lose 100 million so thats more than Vick and Sprewell combined. Gilbert has to win in a landslide.

    TIGER WOODS!!!!!

  • oskamadison

    Mex, skip this damn tournament and just split the honors between Dirty Dick Eldrick and Empty Gun Gil. None of these dumb-ass rappers are even coming close this year, not even Douchebag ‘Ye with that stunt he pulled at the VMA’s. Not even Lil Mama, who wasn’t even smart to capitalize on her approximately 24 seconds of infamy by dropping a new mixtape or song or something. Not even Gucci, who managed to drop Hip-Hop’s already anemic IQ into below freezing territory. No, this year, it’s all about the athletes.

  • http://www.jamal7mile.blogspot.com Jamal7Mile

    Speaking of the Banger section, did I see a rapper who goes by the name Bitch-Bitch? Throw Wacka Flocka in there, too.

    Oh yeah, put the Bone Thugs fan club in there too. They wanna win something so bad, why not the 2010 DN Tournament?

    • latino heat

      cosign 7 Mile

      the Bone Thugs stan club is in desperate need of attention to prove their favorite group isn’t irrelevant. well, here you go. give them a big ass trophy like the Stanley Cup that they will undoubtedly stuff full of weed and incoherently “harmonize” about.

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

      i saw bitch-bitch. i think that was supposed to be soulja boy.

      i am a devout bone thug follower, but i know better than to harbor unrealistic expectations for their reunion record. the stans will be considered. we’ll have to see if they make it. the field is THICK.

    And then making it into a fun, dance song for a quick buck…

    Stephon Marbury
    Frankie(Keisha Cole)
    Bishop Lamont-for thinking he can do anything with those 700 songs(HA!)

  • that nigga

    Tiger, Gilbert, Stephon, and Hurricane Chris/Benzino (Pick One) locked down there respective regions with no comp whats so ever. Just give Tiger the award no and save us the time an effort. I know it takes all the fun outta it but, hey. If the shoe fits?

  • mousie

    Jayson Williams. He might have missed the cutoff but the dedication in his pursuit to spend the rest of his life behind bars has to count for something. He’s willing to die for it.

    Extra points for the dive into the passenger’s seat… awe inspiring.

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

      fucking dead @ “the dedication in his pursuit to spend the rest of his life behind bars has to count for something.”

      so true. and maybe his 2009 was enough to make it. his 2010 work is a top 3-seed sealer, but i can’t count it. he did have the taser in 2009, so you may see him in the field of 64 as a creighton.

      he’ll be a michigan state-like figure next year.

      i sooo wish i could.

      he might have had the best 2002, though.

      • mousie

        Thanks Mexx. $yk, P. I’m thinking this guy could be the grassroots favorite. Just for slinking down on the passenger’s seat like ‘Shmoo’ alone. Please put him in consideration.

        • http://www.bboycult.com $ykotic/Don McCaine

          “like ‘Shmoo’”

          I can’t believe anyone else remembers what a ‘Shmoo is. Classic.

  • KS

    dont forget Katt William

      can NEVER forget katt williams. i can pretty much guarantee you’ll be seeing the pimpin, pimpin.

      he had a terrible year from the time the fucking ball dropped.

    Aint no one in this list has been as consistent as Weezy…I mean from that ‘whip it like a slave’ mess to having 4 baby mommas(A CS case pending in the near future) to gettin thrown in jail for drugs AND guns to making out with his pops,sheeet what hasn’t this boy done not to deserve this honorable prize??

  • Chilly Willy

    I got love for the big homie (no nullus needed), but one of the dumbest move ever from a Wu Tang Financial Senior Rep was IRS self-assessment by weed draft 101 by Johnny Blaze, M.D.N. (Methodically Dumb Nigga).

    Diversify your bonds and put away the bong, nigga…

  • Chilly Willy

    BTW, how come Tyler Perry never gets a nod from the DN committee ? This man is on a mission, people ! You gotta give him at least an honorable mention for all what he did for the progress of dumb niggas and niggarettes(mostly with the gear stick on reverse, but the car ain’t repo’ed yet so, you know…) .

    Respect his ig’nansta, dammit !

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

      two… fucking… points.

      tyler perry’s nomination is under review. he has ron’s vote for sure.

  • Brooklyn

    well, since le tigre isn’t negro, should he be in the tournament? i definitely say quick draw arenas should take it, either him or diddy for the latter’s bitch fit over a ring and then his destruction of $20 bills. or that nigga that was in that video with him that coined the term, “coon music.”

    • El Tico Loco

      Le Tigre is negro, remember the draft? (how prophetic btw he did lose endorsements)

      Tough break nigga!!


    i wrote this on your other post but yeah gilbert won.
    you know you don’t have to do your sdn tournament this year gilbert won already. he may have won for the next 5 years in a row. machine gun gilbert to many techs arenas fucked up the money. mocked the incident in the media and he might go away. now who this fool think he is kobe? they got kobe for fucking mary go round in the poopchute. kobe still got to kepp his checks minus what he paid the lawyers. he got all is endorsements back over time. this fool barely got a shoe deal wait. if he still had it he don’t got it no more. gilbert don’t got nothing right now but a court date. you gotta be a superstar to get all that shit back. gilbert has not been the man in a long time. he should be happy if they let his ass play in mexico none of the european teams going take him. let me take that back he should be happy if they don’t lock his ass up. come on ron ron put this fool on blast he embodies what the sdn tournamnet is about he is your winner.

    it’s that time of year again, already? damn time fly’s when your watching rappers and athletes make fool’s of themselves on the internet(s).

    it seems like just yesterday Yung Berg was taking the trophy home. oh wait, i think the story was that he was robbed for the trophy, correct? sounds pretty realistic to me.

    anyway good luck to all this years scholars and Stephen Hawking jr’s that are nominated.

  • Mr Sin

    rick ross, charles hamilton, chris brown, pleasure p, katt williams…. these niggas all need to be considered…

  • Cam Jones

    How about Maino for waiting for his buzz to die to drop an album and Drake for following the same blueprint.

  • c b w

    I would have to agree that the elaborate engraving of Tiger Woods name on the trophy should begin now.

    He was DUMB and he offically became a NIGGA all in 14 (alleged) jumpoff swoops.

    Let’s all sing together with our favorite MC Ron Artest…”Tiger Tiger Tiger you a nigga…”

  • Moving Sideways

    For all you politically-savvy cats: Michael Steele.

    • http://dasteamwerkmusik.blogspot.com bollocks

      CO. SIGN.

      Please tell me you read the interview with GQ where some white dude was asking Steele who his favorite rapper was and his answer was “Diddy”? The interviewer literally asked, “Do you want to rethink that?”



    • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grands

      ^^^Yeah, I nominated him last year. His b-boy flicks with a couple 45 year old stuffed shirts are definitely nomination worthy. Dudes consistent, but mad under-the-radar.

  • AZ40

    Kid cudi
    Delonte West

  • General

    Damn, there is a lot of competition for this shit…

    Rick Ross and his crabmeats gotta be nominated

    50 Cent spent the entire year of 2009 ensuring that the G-Unit label and brand were finished

    Micheal Steele for spending the entire year of 2009 thinking that he is head of the Republican National Committee because they liked him…

    Elliot Wilson for spending another entire year with Jay and Em’s nuts in his mouth

    EIC of XXL Vanessa for selling out journalism for the entire year again instead of showing love to some of hip hop’s greater moments in 2009

    Milton Bradley formerly of the Cubs, too many dumb nigga moments to mention in a book let alone a short paragraph

  • ChiTown

    I think Pleasure P is possibly capable of reaching the Sweet Sixteen

    (in Uncle Ruckus voice) GUILTY!! That NIGGAAAA is GUILTYYYYYYY!!!!

    Gucci is goin to the fuckin Elite Eight. Anyone who can make someone go “Radio” from listenin to two minutes of a song has my vote of confidence. Plus I cant go in the club shoutin BURRRR to a bitch so..


    damn I forgot Sammy Sosa’s white nicaraguan ass… SMH at him tryin to take Michael Jackson’s spot as the most bleached nigga with a jericurl on earth

  • DBlock

    Kid Cudi (tasered at the ASG)
    Delonte West (real-life Desperado)

    Lamar Odom (for wifin the ugly Kardashian)

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

    excellent suggestions so far, ladies and gents. keep ‘em coming. we are definitely gonna have a 64-seed field. if anything, we’re gonna have to weed contestants out.

    @brooklyn, i know you’re probably being funny as usual, but you bring up a very valid point i need to address.

    DN is not race-specific. anyone can be a DN.

  • giantstepp

    Is it to late for Banks to be in the tourney? But my man Gil is the overall number 1 seed, hands down! Tiger Woods is a close second! Never, ever sleep on SoulJa Boy tell’em! Year in and out he has the potiential to take it home, like UNC or Duke!

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

      soulja boy is definitely an ACC powerhouse (atlanta/atlantic coon conference).

      it’s too late for banks. but, damn. if only he could have gotten that in by new year’s day.

      to all:

      the 20 above were just some of the automatic bids you don’t have to worry about. some of your suggestions were already in the field, i.e.: Katt Williams

  • ChiTown

    Maybe Banks can be considered as a Play-In bid

  • mikel

    CHOPPER SUIT SEASON!! gotta be a top 5 seed

  • DV8

    Gilbert Arenas

    in a dead heat for the chip.

    BTW can we give a Fuck You Award to The Feds for revealing the fact that they found no foul play in their investigation of Micheal Jackson that began in the early 90′s way before the 1st accusation.

    • DV8

      they could have saved that man alot of grief and humuliation.

    No mention of Lamar Odom? That’s gonna clear his pockets like Tiger losing his endorsements. At least Tiger did a service in showing the world how to clear a trailer park out nice and pleasant like.

  • c b w

    Lamar Odom may be a lock for 2010. If that nigga fucks up he’s going to have to pay. Frankenberry, her mama, all of the sisters and Bruce’s non working ass. Shit, Reggie Bush may get a cut of that Laker cash.

Also Consequence for having his face in that video talkin about “You already know what it is” and that dude that said “straight coon music”….WTF? Of course add Diddy to the mix…
