Shortly after contacting an anonymous address for independent label Stones Throw Records, founder Peanut Butter Wolf responded in person to Director Jeff Broadway’s query about a 4 minute video. Before he knew it, Broadway was shooting feature length Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton; a tour de force documentary on the groundbreaking record company. The movie features as much archival material as it promises it’s weight in vinyl – tons. Featured interviews include Kanye, Peanut Butter, Mike D., Snoop, Common, J Dilla and tons more. You don’t need to be a black crack addict to watch this one. Catch it currently at select cities across North America and Europe.
