Kanye West, Common & Madlib Discuss Stones Throw Records In Part 1 Of Documentary (Video)

Peanut Butter Wolf’s Stones Throw Records is a special imprint. The California-based indie label has been a release house for work ranging from acclaimed J Dilla Instrumental albums (Donuts), MF DOOM comeback collaborations (Madvillainy), debut LPs from NYC legends like Percee P (Perseverance), and a host of small one-offs ranging from X-Ecutionerz and Black Stars, to bedroom music-makes (Scuba Steve and James Pants). Additionally, P.B. has released his own music, ranging from mixes and compilations, to his lost work with late partner Charizma. A house for Funk, Soul, Disco, and Experimental music as well, Stones Throw is in many ways, a retro-label that operates like those across the globe in the ’60s and ’70s. Like its founder and CEO, the imprint is low-key, for Heads in the know… and over the years, many more are.

In the just-South By Southwest-premiered documentary on Stones Throw called Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton Heads will see ?uestlove, Common, and Kanye West (none of whom are S.T. artists) praise the label, while footage of Wolf, Madlib, Dam-Funk and the rest of the gang swarms the screen. That’s only in Part 1, which certainly grabs the interest for more to see:
