While not quite as shocking as London’s first round, Chi-town had its own share of thrills.
Joey Purp absolutely destroyed DJ Rashad, winning 88% of the vote, setting up what might be one of the best matchups of the tournament against Chance the Rapper. This is going be a fun one.
One of the biggest shocks was the loss of ANOTHER one-seed! While the early loss of Wilco stings a bit, the idea of Wilco losing to green beans makes me giggle.
