The illustrious Folerio paid a visit to Shots Fired headquarters in traffic-clotted downtown Hollywood. Better known as Peanut Butter Wolf to non-Polish audiences, Mr. Butter Wolf has ran arguably the best independent label of the last decade and a half. Maybe you heard of the little records with donuts and masked men on the covers. I recommend all of these soothing tunes and have been doing so since half shark, half alligator and half men roamed the earth. On a program that a whopping 45 percent of Funny or Die readers have called “Funny,” the Folerio talks about discovering Madlib, the Stones Throw philosophy, living with Madlib & DOOM for a time, and how he ended up meeting J Dilla. There is also an anecdote about the time Madlib, Dilla and him went to a Detroit strip club.
Wolf is about to start the Stones Throw soul tour with Dam-Funk, The Stepkids, and Myron & E. West Coast dates are posted here. Dam and Steve Arrington also have a new album out. I’m posting the appropriate videos and music below the jump because you have read the previous sentence and you know by now.
