In 1996, Chris Manak aka Peanut Butter Wolf founded Stones Throw records. His best friend MC Charles Hicks (Charizma) had just been slain in a carjack attempt and Manak created the label to release their debut album.

Though most well known for bringing the highest caliber underground Hip Hop artists to the forefront - names such as Madlib aka Quasimoto, JRocc, MF Doom, and J Dilla ... the label was always a petri dish for more eclectic artists to do their own thing - whether or not there was a market for it.

Manak's mantra has always been - “I put out what I personally like and save the rest for the other labels out there”

This is his story.
