With Super Bowl XLVIII just days away from kick-off, Brooklyn rapper Fabolous has revealed his pick for the highly-anticipated Denver Broncos versus Seattle Seahawks match-up.
While Loso gave props to the Seahawks, he predicted the Broncos would snatch this year's Lombardi trophy.
"Live from @BryantParkNYC on @ESPN_FirstTake with @StephenASmith, @SkipBayless, & @CariChampion this morning. My Super Bowl winner prediction is the Denver Broncos. Not saying I don't respect the Seahawks & I'm a fan of Richard Sherman's play & rant talks, but I think Denver's offense is strong & their Defense also is no slouch. Either way it should be a great Super Bowl. They also asked if Melo should stay wit the Knicks. And I believe he should. I believe he's planting his feet in the NYC soil but it's now the organizations job to put the right pieces around him. As a fan & a friend I love him playing in the city he was born in & reppin my city!" (Fabolous' Instagram)
This week, Young Money's Lil Wayne admitted he had a hard time believing one-time Super Bowl champion Peyton Manning's Broncos would fall to the Seahawks.
"Honestly, I don't want to use the word 'surprised,' but it is unexpected to see Seattle in the Super Bowl. I expected Peyton. He's been there before. And I love Russell Wilson. But they are not playing in Seattle. I just can't see Peyton losing. ... [Peyton] is special. He is one of a kind. I am glad I am able to live to see him, to see the kind of things he is doing."
