Less than a week away, Slaughterhouse's Joell Ortiz is counting on his hometown New York Giants winning it all against the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.
Ortiz believes Giants superstars like wide receiver Victor Cruz and quarterback Eli Manning could contribute to the potential win.
"The Giants embody New York," Ortiz tells XXLMag.com. "They are the way New York runs. It's hard nose, it may not be pretty, but the job gets done. And Victor Cruz is the perfect example that you ain't gotta go to this big [college] to get noticed. You just have to work hard. He worked hard, he outworked people and he impressed people and he's one of, if not the best wide receiver on the Giants. Eli Manning, it doesn't look pretty. It's not finess, it's not like his brother [Peyton], the crispness [in the passes], but the job gets done. That's what New York dudes do: we get it done. Everybody knows when New York is in town. The Giants embody New York to me, man -- Honestly, as a fan of football, not just because I'm from New York, I honestly think they have a great shot of winning the Super Bowl because of that wining attitude."

G-Unit's 50 Cent recently predicted the Giants would pull out the win.
"I'm up 500,000 off the last one. f*ck it ill bet it back Ill put a 1,000,000 on my G MEN. STUNNER you got the # hit me if you want it.," he tweeted.
"I know what he said fool RT @AbuArije: @BIRDMAN5STAR said 5 @50cent not 1 million"
"I just check the spread Hold up the M casino in vegas said patriots-3 I'm have to bet over there unless STUNNTER giving up points. Get at me" (50 Cent's Twitter)
Despite Oritz and 50's predictions, Cash Money's Birdman believes the Patriots will be victorious.
"I like New ENGLaNd.my nephew play RB# 42.I'm Bet 5million 2 any n*ggaaa.like tha Giants YMCMB.BabyMoney anybody kan Getit.," he tweeted January 23rd. (Birdman's Twitter)
After challenging Birdman's bet, 50 called it off to focus on his Street King hunger awareness campaign.
"I Change my mind I'm not betting on the super bowl I'm gonna promote #SKstreet king and focus on making a difference 4 the less fortunate," Fif tweeted Thursday (January 26) night.
"SK street king energy support the movement. Put SK in your tweets." (50 Cent's Twitter)
The Super Bowl kicks off Sunday, February 5th.
