In case you didn’t know, 2011 marks the the 10 year anniversary of the birth of Dime. And with the new year upon us, you’re going to be seeing a bunch of unique and exclusive stuff dropping for our loyal readers. To kick things off, we decided to team up with NYC’s DJ Mode to create an all-basketball themed mixtape titled, 7 Foot 7 Foot, to symbolize two giants collaborating. With classic music from The Notorious B.I.G., Ice Cube and the Wu-Tang Clan scratched, cut up and blended with new hits from Jay-Z, Lloyd Banks and Dipset, Mode strategically chose songs with classic basketball references, names of NBA players and elements of overall basketball lifestyle.

Dime’s AP got the chance to ask all of this year’s NBA Rookie Class (John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Evan Turner, etc.) what they got in their iPod playlists as well as what they bought after they received their first NBA paycheck. The general consensus is that they’re listening to Drake, Jay-Z, Lil’ Wayne, Kanye West, Gucci Mane, Young Jeezy, and Rick Ross while Jeremy Lin is bumping some Christina music. Most of the rookies also spent their first NBA money on a new car, a house for their mom or themselves, or … food. Hit the jump for the other DimeTV video.
