Big Shots is Charizma & Peanut Butter Wolf's first album. While the tracks for Big Shots were recorded in the early 90's while signed to the Disney owned Hollywood Basic record label, an album was never released due to artistic conflicts with the labels executives. Peanut Butter Wolf retained the tracks and released Big Shots through his label Stones Throw Records in 2003, 10 years after Charizma's death. The album's first single, entitled "My World Premiere", was originally released in 1996. Big Shots was well received by critics and fans alike,[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9] earning 3 out of 5 stars on Allmusic.com[10] and reaching number 3 on CMJ Magazine's hip-hop chart.[11]
