Peanut Butter Wolf, Jonti & More In Stones Throw Mini-Documentary

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

While we wait anxiously for the feature-length Stones Throw documentary,  Life+Times gives us a short version of the evolution of one of the most diverse and talented labels in the game today. Chronicling the pre-Stones Throw era of Peanut Butter Wolf and the late Charizma to the birth of the label and its newly signed artists, like South African new kid Jonti, this mini-doc gives an inside look at the ST environment. Sharing exclusive footage of himself and Charizma from back in the day, the Peanut Butter Wolf monster discusses his personal thoughts on Stones Throw history, from his own "Apple Juice Break" to Jonti's newly created soundscapes, comparing the new kid to Kraftwerk  ("He's our Kraftwerk"). Watch the development of Stones Throw Records and listen to the thoughts of the founder and one of the newest signees. And hopefully we'll see the full feature-length documentary, Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton (This Is Stones Throw) sometimes this year.
