Various Artists Peanut Butter Wolf Presents: Stones Throw-Ten Years
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Stones Throw
Last year, Stones Throw achieved a rare feat for an indie hip-hop label-it reached its tenth anniversary. To celebrate, label founder PB Wolf presents a collection of 25 of its most riveting tracks from Madvillain, M.E.D., Koushik, and others. But this isn't just a "best of" disc. Despite the absence of a few classics (namely Rasco's "Take It Back Home"), this compilation thoroughly documents how much Stones Throw's roster has grown in size and sonic variety. From the Lootpack's freestyle marathon "Whenimondamic" to Aloe Blacc's soulful slow jam "Arrive," nearly every inclusion provides a fresh outlook.
