Stones Throw 101(Stones Throw)
The label Madlib built is actually the brainchild of Peanut Butter Wolf. Augmenting the disjointed raps of Madvillain and Quasimoto with the fruits of a funk rediscovery subsidiary called Now Again, Stones Throw covers all bases under the umbrella of hip-hop expression. Compiling 15 music videos, the DVD is enhanced with archival footage of long-lost funk outfits Stark Reality and LA Carnival. Throw in a mix CD of the label's greatest hits, and a complete package becomes readily apparent.
