Peanut Butter Wolf is an underground legend in my book. Stones Throw is the label that all other underground labels should be aspiring to be like when they grow up. This label is one of my favorites because they literally have one of the deepest and dopest artists rosters in the game today! The Stone’s Throw family is definitely full of trendsetters, headed by their label President PB Wolf who always seems to be keeping them steadily moving forward. Just recently Stones Throw came together with 2K Sports to develop the music soundtrack for the latest basketball gaming phenomenon NBA 2K8. Owners of home gaming systems like Playstation 2 or XBOX definitely know about the 2K series from years of quality gaming moments. Well, if you love sports anyway. Outside of the Madden Football, I think the NBA 2K series is the most anticipated sports gaming experience each year just for the brilliance of the realism that it captures. The graphics are always amazing, but the soundtracks are even better! There’s nothing better than playing basketball with your favorite team while listening to some good ole’ hip-hop music. PB Wolf has compiled 20 dope tracks that will accompany the NBA 2K8 game entitled “B-Ball Zombie War” that both will be released on October 2nd!

B-Ball Zombie War features new collaborations by Talib Kweli, Q-Tip and MF DOOM over beats by J Dilla, as well as new tracks by Madlib, Guilty Simpson, Aloe Blacc, Koushik, MED and Guilty Simpson among others. New names are introduced, including Karriem Riggins and Madlib’s group Supreme Team. Production is being handled by everyone from J Dilla to Madlib and that's never a bad thing. There will also be two nationwide tours starting after this project is released featuring Common, Percee P & Q-Tip in November, and a Stones Throw showcase including J-Rocc, Madlib & PB Wolf starting in November 2007.
