The hip-hop polymath known as Peanut Butter Wolf first emerged from San Jose as the beat-maker behind Charizma’s raps. Tragedy cut the partnership short when Charizma was shot and killed at the age of twenty. The incident galvanized Peanut Butter Wolf to start a record label, Stones Throw, which became a platform for more legendary creative collaborations with game-changing rappers such as Madlib and MF Doom. In 1999, Peanut Butter Wolf released My Vinyl Weighs a Ton, which cemented his reputation as a singular producer. Earlier this year, a documentary of the same name chronicled the rise of Stones Throw, depicting an unyielding, iconoclastic symbol of underground and experimental hip-hop around the world. Now based in Los Angeles, Peanut Butter Wolf’s live sets feature video, as well as disc, jockeying; this weekend, he’ll bring it to The Monarch (101 6th St., San Francisco).
