VINYL FORMAT. Curated by Peanut Butter Wolf, Stones Throw is releasing a 4LP boxset to commemorate the late MC, Charizma and the collection of works he and Peanut Butter Wolf created between 1990-1993. The anthology includes rare, classic and unreleased tracks that makes up eight sides of vinyl, along with never before seen photos and ephemera.A lifetime has passed since the murder of Bay Area emcee Charles "Charizma" Hicks who, in December of 1993 at the age of 20, was shot and killed at random while sitting in his car. Despite his short life, Charizma made an impression on everyone he encountered. Charizma's death deeply impacted his close friend and hip hop production partner Chris "Peanut Butter Wolf" Manak, who at the time stopped making music (and everything else) for several months after receiving the news. Ultimately, however, it was Charizma's murder that gave PB Wolf the impetus to carry on and get their music heard by the world – setting up his own record label to do so. In 1996, Wolf founded Stones Throw Records and put out the first release, a Charizma/PB Wolf 12" single called "My World Premiere."
