Cold Chillin's limited-edition deluxe set of the Marley Marl classic with 2LP colored vinyl (in signature pink & blue), and two slipmats.

In the early 1980s at the beginning of his career, Marley Marl
was taken under the wing of original Juice Crew members and given a life-changing opportunity to be the official DJ for the
legendary New York City rap show “Mr. Magic’s Rap Attack.”
This experience, coupled with his internship at Unique Studios
under Arthur Baker, helped Marley
both understand how a record was produced, and served as a
launch pad for him to develop his own recording techniques and
earn his own credits on early Hip Hop and electro classics.

By 1988, Marley Marl was the man. His production and
connections had catapulted him to being the “in-house”
producer for the second coming of the Juice Crew, creating hits for MC Shan, Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap and Biz Markie.

In Control Vol. 1 was released in 1988, the first time we can think of where the producer was the headline artist of a hip-hop album. With an impeccable balance of the hottest rappers of the time and newest talent in the Juice Crew, In Control Vol. 1 can easily be identified as a true hip-hop classic.
