Gotta love Stones Throw. The leftfield Californian hip hop imprint pressed ahead with a scheduled Japan tour in early April last year, even donating 100% of the profits to quake relief, but they still seem contrite about having to cancel a date in Sendai during that trip – to the extent that they're starting their latest tour there this time around. Now that's dedication. Following on from their gig at Sendai's ADD on Friday night, turntablist J. Rocc and rapper M.E.D. will be flying the Stones Throw flag at Sound Museum Vision on Saturday, where they're joined by a slew of local hip hoppers including Muro, Luvraw & BTB + Mr. Melody and the Wax Poetics Japan crew.
