Stones Throw "Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton" (Documentary)

The story of Stones Throw Records: Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton is a feature-length documentary about avant-garde Los Angeles-based record label Stones Throw Records. The film weaves together rare concert footage, never-before-see archival material, inner-circle home video and photographs and in-depth interviews with the artists who put Stones Throw Records on the map. Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton gives an exclusive look into the label's left-of-center artists, history, culture, and global following. The film features exclusive interviews with Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Common, Questlove, Talib Kweli, Mike D (The Beastie Boys), Tyler the Creator, and many more. I originally had the trailer for the documentary below, but someone posted the documentary, so check it out while it's available. If it gets taken down, give me a shout and I'll update this post (again). Great documentary!
