We just got off the phone with our bookie.
Chasing that Sucker Free paper, Crossfade dropped a fat stack on a four category parlay -- Rookie of the Year, Best Crew, Song of the Year, and Who's Got Next -- and $500 in side bets.
Tyler, The Creator, Odd Future, Meek Mill's "Ima Boss," and Mac Miller are all locks. But who'll crash the Sucker Free Awards this Friday at LIV is anyone's guess. With a ton of skrilla on the line, we're hoping some of our hip-hop homies pull through and show up uninvited.
Check out Crossfade's swag rapper wish list after the cut.
5. Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire
Homeboy needs to roll up to LIV "with three bitches in an MPV" and "half a gallon of Georgie Porgie" and accept the "Who's Got Next" award. Oh, he's not nominated. Too bad. He wins.
The former No Limit Records rapper dropped five mixtapes in 2011; easily the best resurgence by a New Orleans MC this year. Rocking a tuxedo, tennis shoes, and straight stinkin' like that sticky-icky-icky, we're hoping Fiend crashes Weezy's performance and show's what a real NoLa rapper should sound like.
3. 2 Chainz (formerly Tity Boi)
Cocaine on his knuckles? This dude's hardcore. Download his motherfuckin' mixtape.
Wouldn't it be great if Chip$ hotboxed the Sucker Free awards, Detroit-style, just like he did at the Das Racist show last month? Speaking of Das Racist...

Who's that? Brooown!
