'Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton'
From the Notes-From-the-Underground dept.: Way back in the day, a DJ named Peanut Butter Wolf decided to start a label devoted to the below-the-radar hip-hop his friends and fellow artists were making. He called it Stone's Throw, and the imprint introduced the world to such lysergic lyrical crackpots as MF Doom and Madlib. See how a young man with a dream and a shitload of records managed to turn a sub-subset of the rap game into a modest musical empire.
