Stones Throw 102 DVD “In Living The True Gods” In Stores Feburary 12th

Stones Throw’s first DVD, Stones Throw 101 served as a primer course for those unfamiliar with the label’s video releases, and included one of indie hip-hop’s greatest visual moments, the animated Madvillain “All Caps” video. Directors of Stones Throw 101 videos have gone on to great heights, working for the likes of Nas, Young Buck, Ludacris and alongside visionaries like Michel Gondry.
For the label’s follow up, the West Coast mavericks have assembled a more advanced curriculum, In Living The True Gods – a line borrowed from Madvillain’s “Accordion,” seen for the first time on this collection.

From the surrealist Quasimoto “Bullyshit” animated video to the late J Dilla’s last appearance on film in MED’s “Push” to the neo-noir animated nightmare of Madvillain’s “Monkey Suite,” this anthology demonstrates Stones Throw’s widening, and never retiring, creative base. A series of bonus features range from an exclusive J Dilla interview from 2003 to a mini-documentary Charizma and Peanut Butter Wolf, shot in session on VHS in 1992.
