Months before the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Stones Throw partnered with Stussy Japan to plan for a for a DJ tour out there: Peanut Butter Wolf, Mayer Hawthorne and J Rocc, celebrating Stones Throw's 15-year mark and the release of J Rocc's album Some Cold Rock Stuf.
The tour seemed in doubt for a moment, but for our partners in Japan, it was business as usual. The guys did the tour as planned, with only one J. Rocc show in Sendai having to cancel. (He'll be back!) We ended up donating the proceeds to Japan Red Cross, and we even came back with a video.
Available now are two of the shirts from the tour, printed by Stussy Japan, and illustrated by Gustavo Eandi, who also did the illustration for J Rocc's album and a couple of the Madlib Medicine Show releases.
