Dita Eyewear just shot a press release with these crazy joints. Dita's 'The Gold Series' is made up of 2 different Aviator Shades. One in the classic Aviator lense and the other in the classic Dita Aviator shape with mirrored lenses made of 24k white and yellow gold...
'Dita has developed custom mirrored lenses using authentic 24k white and yellow gold. Dita has created these lenses by using an extraordinary and privileged technology that takes the precious metal and compresses it between two lenses preventing the common problem of scratched mirrored lenses. The two fused lenses prevent the gold mirror from being rubbed or scratched off; creating a lens that will not lose its luster.
Dita will offer this exclusive lens technology in the following frames: Dynasty, Voulez Vous, Ambassador, and Midnight Special. Global production will be limited to 75 pieces per style in each lens color. The frame colors will match the lens colors. '
I had heard this on Mark Ronson's Authentic Sh*t Podcast and had to replay it several times(like I'm doing right now)... along with some other joints he premiered...Its just one of the coolest tracks I've heard in a while..... A radio show rip was popping up in some places, but now Stereogum drops the freeload...Thank you!

I love salsa music....Seriously, I love it... Its the best ish to dance to(Hip-hop can't f___ with it.. try Salsa/Merengue music with some alcohol in your blood stream..the best!) And I love Pharrell's instrumentals on Salsa/Merengue records like this and the one he did For Daddy Yankee 'Mamacita'... Pharrell was on that tip for a minute and he supposedly had signed Sergio... This track has been floating around for over a year, but only the snippet and now the full on Sergio's Plague Mixtape ...
Sergio Veneno - Ven Aqui Mama ft. Pharrell (Prod. Pharrell)
Via ...Sergio Veneno & Twitter
You can check the video of The Neptunes and Sergio working on the record after the jump>>>>
Another Nardwuar clip...I'm not gonna lie I dig Lickey Lee's steez a little bit... Thats just cause I'm a sucker for eccentric European chicks that dig hip-hop(and have funny teeth..LMAO)..And really.. How many supposed hip-hop heads could kick any Tribe track off memory...
BTW.. Nardwuar's voice is irritating as ___k!
