The Super Bowl is almost here. This Sunday at Metlife Stadium in New York, the Seattle Seahawks will go against the Denver Broncos. Who do you all have for picks? My opinion, I think Seattle will this pull this off. It's Seattle's time and maybe a little of Macklemore luck from winning at the Grammy's help them win this game as well.

First off, lets congratulate Macklemore of his winning at the Grammy's this past Sunday. He definitely had an outstanding year in 2013, with three songs that sat number one on the Billboards Top 100 chart for numerous months and days. On the other hand Kendrick Lamar had just the better year. From releasing his debut album Good Kid, M.A.A.D City he has had numerous singles that have received radio play and he had buzzing, controversial features that left the music industry pay attention to him more.
Recently Macklemore, was on Hot 97 in New York via a phone interview and he explained why the Grammy committees chose him over Kendrick Lamar for best rap artist. According to Macklemore, "the grammy committee's are basically a bunch of people who fill out bubbles of genre's that they really don't know about."
