"Cold Chillin' Records released some of the most important music in the golden age of hip hop from the late 1980s to the early 1990s. A producer/crew label founded by manager Tyrone Williams and run by Len Fichtelberg (d. November 4, 2010), and then with the help of legendary NYC DJ/radio personality Mr. Magic (d. October 2, 2009), most of the label's releases were by members of the Juice Crew, a loosely knit group of artists centered around producer/DJ Marley Marl. Marley along with artists like Biz Markie, M.C. Shan, Kool G Rap and DJ Polo and Roxanne Shante released classic single after classic single, many becoming life long hip hop measuring sticks (Shan's 'The Bridge,' Marley's & Craig G.'s 'Droppin' Science' and Kool G Rap's 'Ill Street Blues') that have set the standard for rap artists of today. The ever charasmatic Biz Markie even gained worldwide commercial success with his quirky anthems 'Just A Friend' and 'Spring Again' and today has a coveted acting spot on the hit children's television show Yo Gabba Gabba! on Nick Jr. All these gems, 15 in all, from Cold Chillin's Top 4 artists, are collected together here in this one handy go to package."
