We had a chance to speak with some of the newest players in the NBA last week during the 2013 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot as part of the four-day Rookie Transition Program that wrapped last Friday. While we enjoyed some of the high-jinks during the all-day affair, we also had to talk over a thrumming bass line as hip hop blared in the background for most of the day.

The loud setting plus the incredible lyrical moment from Kendrick Lamar during the debut of the Big Sean track, “Control” last night — featuring a K. Dot verse where he goes after most of his peers in the rap game — synthesized around our rookie mix. Read More »

Dime Q&A: Hip-Hop Star Future Talks Auto-Tune, French Montana & What The NBA Is Missing


Confidence is crucial when deciding to become a rapper. If you don’t exude a certain arrogance that drips off you, you might as well reconsider your career. Being brash and pretentious is actually a plus and not frowned upon in hip-hop. It’s cool to have the lyrics and flows, but being the quintessential rapper requires a dose of cockiness. Read More »

When it comes to actual athletic ability, the entertainment industry is full of phonies. How many artists would have you believe that they could have been a pro athlete if they hadn’t picked up a mic instead?

I’m not going to lie, I started cracking up watching this. Read More »
