28 minutes of uncut footage, outtakes, interviews and more on the “B-Sides” from Stones Throw’s Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton documentary which is a must watch. Oh and there is a Kanye West interview that starts at and comes back in at various points 21:44. I included some excerpts below.

Kanye- “It’s amazing: How could we lose Biggie, Pac, Dilla, Steve Jobs, Michael Jackson? It almost feels like the Devil’s winning,” West says. “We gotta make music and think, ‘If Dilla was alive, would he like this?’ I have to work on behalf of Dilla. When I put a weird-ass Jamaican sample, it works at first but it’s not until I put the [makes discordant musical noise] that it sounds like art or sounds slightly wrong. And now it’ll go to the radio now that it’s wrong, motherfucker. Now play this. Play this 5-minute song that completely fucks up your programming. The best respect that we can pay to great artists that have inspired us so much is to never sell out.”
