NBA Rookies: My iPod Playlist

While I was at the NBA Rookie Photo Shoot in August, I was able to get up with all 40 NBA rookies in attendance and ask them each five questions. All 30 first rounders were there (except No. 17 Kevin Seraphin who was getting his visa), as well as 10 second round picks and undrafted Jeremy Lin. Watch as they tell DimeTV what’s in the rotation on the iPod. (Note: Some of these albums had just dropped.)

What’s in your rotation on the iPod these days?

    I dont even have to watch the vid, i already knw the lameness going on. Pro athletes are so out of touch with true culture now n days. Its a shame really because as role models to the youth they can change alot of the garbage music (anything Gucci, Plies, Drake and Wayne make) but their circle of ass kissers never tell them how lame it is. Take LBJ for example, he has no idea how lame he looks rappin and dancing during timeouts, and no one has the balls to tell him he looks like a hype (crackhead). At least J.Cole (best artist ive heard since Lupe) is getting some love. Wale, K.R.I.T., Curren$y, Wiz also.

    people hate on mainstream cuz its mainstream…

  • Mark

    Aron – same post i put on your rookie’s 1st purchase video…
    Aron! Nice! Great journalism getting all the rookies to share…and you spliced it all in a quick and entertaining video. Thank you.

  • princesslebron

    @ egypt – people hate on mainstream cause IT SUCKS. Get the garbage lil wayne, rick ross, gucci mane, cali swag, new boyz, corny bullshit out.

    No wonder I stopped buying this garbage and just steal that shit for free and play it at my gigs. Fuck that I ain’t paying for these clowns.


    lol this is funny…….. “yo i got a lot of lil wayne, jay z, drake, wale…. and everything”

    cant blame them tho, these are young guys who have spent their lives in a gym, they don’t really care about things like music, they just take what they’re given. its a bit surprising tho that no one mentioned Big Boi, Yelawolf or Curen$y, the guys who have put out probably the 3 best major label releases this year.

  • CK

    shoutouts to Craig Brackins for mentioning Pac Div

    but how can some of these fools say they listen a little bit of everything when they all listen to Jay-Z Lil Wayne Drake and Rick Ross..

  • top_gun

    Funny how everyone thinks they’re music experts. Everyone has their own taste in music. The real garbage music are the one hit wonders.

  • MadSammyboy

    “…a lot of Drake…”

    “…a whole lotta Drake…”

    “…Drake, man, a lot o’ Drake…”

    Doesn’t Drake only have one album? How can ANYone have ‘a lot of Drake’ if he only has one album?
