//GOLDEN: Zita's B-Day x SoCal Guests

//Yes yes, it's the GOLDEN time of the month again! We will be celebrating the earth day of the one MamaZita with guest shots from the following fam:

//BENCY (SD) - This dude Bency is one of the nicest, most genuine and generous cats I know. He works hard, takes care of his, and is the only cat who has a standing invitation to spin with us at GOLDEN. It's become sort of a tradition for him to come up in October and throw down for his born day, so consider this the third mo'gin. He's also nice on the tables so expect sounds across the spectrum of breakbeats, latin jazz, reggae, and below-the-surface good hip hop, and look him up when you're in San Diego.

//LADY SHA (Lioness LA) - Shaden is another righteous hustla on the turntables, and we all know the sisters have to hustle extra hard to get their due. She is a staple in LA and is recently returned from touring Europe. Come thru early to catch her sureshot selection of stuff you wish you knew about.

//..and along with the bright theme of the night, here's a new track from one half of the greatest hip hop group of all time. I rarely post new stuff cause everyone and their mom does that on blogs, but I've really been feeling Daddy Fat Sacks' new tracks, he's rapping his ass off and the beats are top notch--this one in particular by longtime OutKast DJ Cutmaster Swift. I love how Big punctuates his 1st verse with a Bay "yadadamean!"and then gives a shout to Volume 10 in his 2nd. I've thrown in the original sample as well, a classic Gamble & Huff production with Teddy Pendergrass on the lead:

Big Boi f/Gucci Mane "Shine Blockas" (Def Jam, 2009)

Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes "I Miss You" (Sony, 1972)
