Get Involved, Internet: Support a feature-length documentary about iconic label Stones Throw 

Every day, more and more creative types are turning to crowdsourcing to fund their projects. Get Involved, Internet aims to help them. If you know of a worthwhile project needing attention, let us know.

Legendary Los Angeles hip-hop and funk label Stones Throw has long been shrouded in mystery, in part because two of its most popular artists, Madlib and MF Doom, regularly release albums under identity-clouding alter egos, and because two of its other most iconic artists (Charizma and J-Dilla) died young.

Stones Throw could potentially become a lot less mysterious with the making of Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton, a feature-length documentary about the empire of awesomeness built by DJ/producer-turned-label-head Peanut Butter Wolf. The project is being funded via Kickstarter, and there are all manner of cool premiums to be picked up, ranging from Quasimoto rolling papers to a Peanut Butter Wolf-led tour of Stones Throw headquarters. Here’s the trailer: 

And here's the beyond-awesome animated clip for Madvillain’s “ALL CAPS”:
