Stones Throw 2007 Tour Announced, Plus "Walk For Dilla" Date
- Words: Jennifer Marston
It’s always a treat when the Stones Throw family comes to town, and Peanut Butter Wolf and crew are currently packing the tour bus for their annual label tour, which stops in most major North American cities and showcases the many sides of hip-hop that the L.A.-based label has to offer. Joining PBW in festivities for 2007 will be the almost iconic producer Madlib, jazz drummer and Detroit veteran Karriem Riggins, accomplished turntablist and Beat Junkies founder J.Rocc, and MC Percee P, whose debut artist album, Perseverance, recently arrived at record stores.
The 2006 tour rested somewhat under the shadow of the late J Dilla, who passed away from lupus earlier that year. Rest assured, the Detroit legend has hardly been forgotten in 2007. "Walk For Dilla," a fundraising event coordinated by the Alliance for Lupus Research, will take place October 13 in New York, and aims to raise money for lupus research. Get involved here, then go enjoy the show.
