Peanut Butter Wolf Releases Two Mixtapes Honoring The Late-Great Musicians That We Lost In 2016

2016 is over my friends. The nightmare that saw many of our most cherished musicians tragically leave us has now passed. As a tribute, Stones Throw founder Chris Manak, also known by his alias Peanut Butter Wolf, has released two special mixes that honor those we’ve lost. The mix includes the likes of such icons as David Bowie, Prince and George Michael, but also goes a bit deeper with the inclusion of a variety of artists, from Bobby Hutcherson to Jeremy Steig. Pay your respects by listening to both mixes in their entirety throughout.
