Stones Throw Records is a label that looms large over the independent hip-hop scene. Influential records from across the spectrum the likes of Madvillainy, Donuts, and others have been pumped out of the house that founder Chris “Peanut Butter Wolf” Manak built. Wolf and other Stone Throws figures went on a brief US tour called “Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton” a few years ago, which was recorded and cut into a documentary about the label, aptly titled Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton: This Is Stones Throw Records.
The film, directed by Jeff Broadway & Rob Bralver, received a limited theatrical release back in 2013, and it’s now streaming on Netflix for the first time. The doc is chock full of behind the scenes studio footage, music videos, tour footage, and interviews with artists like Madlib, Doom, Common, Kanye West, Tyler The Creator, and others. Check out the trailer for this masterpiece above and stream it on Netflix here.
