In »Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton« director Jeff Broadway pays tribute to hip-hop music by telling the story of the avant-garde and L.A. based record company Stones Throw Records. Made with deep appreciation and respect for the world of hip-hop, the story of underground Stones Throw Records is told through founder and DJ Peanut Butter Wolf. »Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton« features two decades’ worth of concert and TV footage, and features appearances by Common, Talib Kweli and Kanye West.

Playing masterfully with montages built through sound and music, Broadway portrays the avant-garde hip-hop, reggae, soul, funk, and R&B that has built Stones Throw Records. After 17 years of living quietly in the underground music scene, »Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton« places Stones Throw Records on the map for those who are not aware of their more than 370 releases.
