Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton: This Is Stones Throw

Stones Throw: the label that brought you Madvillainy, Donuts and more…

Hip hop documentaries are the best, aren’t they? You get to see the people behind the music and maybe some crate digging adventures, especially if it involves those indie labels. Well, Stones Throw may be added to that list as they’re planning on releasing a feature-length documentary which is currently in the works and slated for completion in early 2013. From the label that brought you the likes of Madlib and his insane discography, Dilla’s Donuts, Madvillainy, Dam Funk, Mayer Hawthrone and plenty of others, this is something you’ll want to watch. Featuring a intricate mix of rare concert footage, never-before-seen archival material and home movies, as well as interviews with the people who made Stones Throw what it is today, Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton will explore everything that makes the label tick and what it means to people across the world. However, director Jeff Broadway isn’t Bill Gates and this project needs YOUR backing. Contribute as little as $1 to support the documentary and if you give more, you’ll be rewarded with special Stones Throw items (link is below).

Stay tuned for more info as it comes in.
