Peanut Butter Wolf

Peanut Butter Wolf has kept himself busy during the past few years. As one of the originators of the "turntablist-as-the-star" phenomenon, he continues to contribute to hip hop on many different levels. He's released numerous singles and EPs featuring young and upcoming talent. He's started his own record label, Stones Throw, which has helped launch the careers of such artists as Encore, Lootpack, and Encore (not to mention the tragically shortened career of Charisma, RIP). He's an accomplished producer who's worked with all of the aforementioned artists, as well as Kool Keith, Redman, and Rock from Heltah Skeltah. He also possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of the music and a voluminous record collection.

On his first full-length, My Vinyl Weighs a Ton, he flexes dope scratches, ill beats, and obscure samples. He also collaborates with a wide range of guest MCs and turntablists, giving the LP a nice, well-rounded feeling. Planet Asia represents lovely on "Definition of Ill" and "Styles Crews Flows Beats," the latter a multiple-part masterpiece featuring the talents of the Lootpack. P.B. Wolf was one of the first pioneers of the contemporary "just a beat, some scratches, and a hook" formula for producing hip hop tracks and My Vinyl Weighs a Ton shows that he remains one of the best.
