My Vinyl Weighs a Ton is the first solo album by Californian hip hop DJ and producer Peanut Butter Wolf, released in 1999 on his own Stones Throw label, in conjunction with Copasetik Records. The album title is a reference to the Public Enemy song "Miuzi Weighs a Ton" from Yo! Bum Rush the Show. In 2014 a movie documentary was released. It was named "Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton" to honor the "spin off" of the DJ's record label (pun intended).

The album reached #1 on KTUH's charts on the week of March 1, 1999.[2]
