Landspeed To Re-Release Cold Chillin' Catalog


Records has announced plans to

re-release classic material from the Cold Chillin’ Records

catalog. Cold Chillin’ was one of the first and most influential

powerhouse rap labels. Never before had a record company managed

to put such diverse and charismatic talents as Master Ace, Big

Daddy Kane, Roxanne Shante, Kool G Rap, Marley Marl, Biz Markie

and Craig G together under one label. Poised at the intersection

between “old school” and “new school,” Cold

Chillin’ produced some of the most memorable and important

hip hop music to ever be released.

Says Bob Perry, President

of LandSpeed, “Everyone here at LandSpeed is very excited

about the opportunities that working with this classic hip hop

catalog presents.” LandSpeed’s first releases on October

17 will be “Best of” albums by legendary artists Biz

Markie and Kool G Rap. The Biz Markie album will feature classic

joints like “Make The Music With your Mouth Biz,” “Just

a Friend,” and “Vapors.” Look for “Roads to

Riches,” “Streets of New York” and “It’s

A Demo” to appear on the Kool G Rap album.

Later in the year,

LandSpeed Records plans to release a double CD set of Cold Chillin’

classics and will also begin releasing other “Best of”

albums by Cold Chillin’ artists. Landspeed also handles distribution

for Super Vinyl/Oblique Recordings, Freddie Foxx AKA Bumpy Knuckles,

Necro and The High and Mighty, and other indie labels.
