My Vinyl Weighs A Ton (Explicit)
Released: Jan 1998
Label: Yucatan Music Limited/Copasetik
Mixing East Coast boom bap with West Coast turntabalism, My Vinyl Weighs a Ton helped announce a new aesthetic. The CD's rugged rhymes -- supplied by future West Coast heavy hitters such as Planet Asia and Rasco -- are perfectly suited for Wolf's beats, which are minimal and focus on the tracks indelible rhythms and jarring turntable cuts. While Wolf would later become best known as the head of Stones Throw Records, My Vinyl proves that he stands toe-to-toe with some of the West Coast's best producers.
