Chris Manak, aka Peanut Butter Wolf, is a DJ, hip-hop producer and the founder of hip-hop label Stones Throw Records.[2]

A native of San Jose, California,[1] He took on the name Peanut Butter Wolf in the late-80s when he realized that a girlfriend’s youngest brother feared the “peanut butter wolf monster” more than death itself. He has been active since 1989 when he produced a song by Lyrical Prophecy called "You Can't Swing This". In 1990 he began to work with emcee Charizma, and both of them were soon signed to Hollywood BASIC, a division of Disney's Hollywood Records. Lately, Peanut Butter Wolf has moved away from producing (save the odd remix or compilation track) to run the Stones Throw label and to travel as a DJ to Europe, Japan, Australia, Canada, and across the US.

He has overseen the releases of Lootpack’s Soundpieces, Quasimoto’s The Unseen, Breakestra’s Live Mix, Yesterdays New Quintet’s Angles Without Edges, Madlib's Shades of Blue, and Jaylib's Champion Sound.
