where and when were you - when you first heard stones throw material???


ummm for me i'd say 98 or 99 when lootpack dropped...

i remember stretch armstrong and cucumber slice (a.k.a bobbito garcia) would play tracks back to back with defari and the licks on 89.9 thursday nights from 1 til 5 am... how did they do that?????




or was it even earlier... im too lazy to look for release dates... when lootpack dropped, thats when i discovered throw....

i was too embarrasessed to go to stores and sing the tunes to the djs so it wasn't until ynq's angle's or wolfs 45 collection dropped that i started putting the pieces together....

all my friends were still in their techknow phase so they were useless for hip hop info...

I was and still am a Likwid Junky

Lootpack guest appreared on' 21 and Over ' so I figured they were just affiliates. Then the Soundpieces came out and I bought the album because I remembered the name (that's how I use to buy music from refferals from other artists still do....LMAO) I also think Friday Night Flavors spun "Whenimonthemic" one night and explained twho they were


I was confused for a minute because Lootpack was on Stonesthrow not Loud/RCA whatever


I remember being like WTF? is a Stonesthrow......I also WTF the name Peanut Butter Wolf first time I heard it


Then I typed in the site and it was just a page about the label a year or so later they had a board been here since............

The first time I heard of Stones Throw was when I bought the "Run the Line" single. The Q-Bert cuts are ill.

I lived in Santa Cruz and I heard of these cats from San Jose (over the hill) named Peanut Butter Wolf & Charizma(RIP) from my boy Brew (Topski). Brew was a street kid/mc/graf writer I took in for a while. He said he freestyled with them once or something. I was like whatever, but it stood out in my mind when I saw the PBW on the Bomb DJ compilation. That's about it.

I too am a L.J. so I knew the Lootpack and they seemed to fit the mold but I had the Rasco record before that. I was surprised that Encore came out an Asphadel or wadeva that labels called.

As long as they keep putting out that boom bap / inner steller shit, I'll be hip.

i would wake up at like 4:45 am on sundays to go to work and right when adultswim was ending, they'd put the beats they had used for the blacks slides and it went something like this:

Madlib
Yesterday's New Quintet
Psyche Origami
Five Deez


and the beats were HOT! so i researched all of them and only came up with Madlib. Psyche Origami didn't pop up. and neither did Five Deez. then i found YNQ was him and it kinda confused me. around the same time, Madvillain dropped and i saw the cover of the album in ALL these magazines: GQ, Details, Esquire, all the non-hip hop magazines. and i had heard about jaylib, cuz i knew dilla but not madlib. i remember going to the virgin music store in times square and having it in my hands (i knew about it from bling47.com) and i had that feeling like picking it up but, I JUST PUT IT BACK DOWN. little did i know, i was in for something monumental... oh and my first ST/Madlib cd i got was the blue note. after that i was hookt

it's funny cuz when i would listen to welcome 2 detroit in '01, '02, i'd hear all these names: "peanut butter wolf!"
"lootpack". when i put the pieces together.... :( :) :D

The first track i heard was Lootpack's "Long Awaited (feat. Dilated Peoples)", a track that i just happened to download because i was a fan of dilated peoples at that time. I thought it was dope. This happened in 2001, if i remember correctly..

..That or Tha Alkaholiks' "Killin It" which had a madlib beat.

For me it was Charizma's "My World Premiere". I grew up in Milpitas and used to see Charizma all the time, i knew dude rapped but didn't think he would actually drop anything. Then one day my older cousin's friend had the 12" and i was like "thats the dude i see at Golf Land", then "Time waits for no man" dropped and i knew that this label was special.

It was 99 or 00 in a bookstore. I walked in and my homey behind the reg said, "Listen to this!"

Thats the first time I heard of Lord Quas and his buddy pal, Madlib. After that,a year or two later, I heard the Villain Style EP and connected the dots.

21 & Over was the first time hearing madlib, although I didn't really recognize madlib/st artists until the DJ Rhettmatic/Beat Junkies double cd mix with Lootpack's The Anthem on it - 98 I think. That double disc and Soundbombing II were my soundtrack to summer 98 and turned me onto a lot of good shit.

i first heard quasimoto on the "underground airplay" cd mixed by spinbad. and i thought does this guy really sound like this, then i loved the beat and lyrics. looked up quasi and the rest is history.

but my i first hear about pbw from a friend who had the return of the dj vol. ? and said he really wanted to hear more of him, and i thought who or what is peanut butter wolf. i have to admit now, thinking of it that is the best dj name ever wolf!

Eh it was back in 03 or '4 when I was playing tony hawks underground at home and at that time I really did think all rap was plain crap and always felt there had to be something beneath all the bullshit but had no idea where to start. I liked that game because that soundtrack was so diverse. I really discovered discovered good music when i playd that game( I mean it, mfdoom,jlive, nas,p.ut.s,cann ox,mr. lif,quasimoto....perfect selections). Also you could include [as] because of those little bumps they do before and after shows commercial breaks and then I had no idea Yesterdays New Quintet was madlib but I did know I loved the way "they" sounded. After that I ran across ughh abd bow I'm here :D

I was in a record store with a few friends. One of them played the Kazi 12" for me and I was amazed. This was the kind of music I would hear in my head but never hear on record. It was something else. Since that day I've been a Madlib fan. I guess had to be in '00 or maybe '01. The following years I collected everything that Madlib released and in those days that was pretty much all the music ST put out. I'm glad I did 'cus back then the 12 inches were still available so I pretty much got everything between 98-03. In my opinion some of the best music Madlib done came out in between those years.

Psyche Move 12" in 95-96'. Heard stuff from them on 21 & Over. But actually winning me over as a fan, was the beats Madlib looped between the songs on that 12".

Alkaholks & Lootpack were both dope. Was like "Finally, some cats that can actually rap, smoke weed,& drink. & they're not even gang bangin?!!" Time when Ice Cube & Westside Connection ran LA radio...

I heard Rasco's Hold Up in a video my friend showed me, got My Vinyl Weighs a Ton, then Time Waits for No Man... then I think the 10 year, Big Shots... I dunno. Last year sometime, I can't believe I didn't get into it sooner.
