Main Source, Large Professor Announce 'Breaking Atoms 25' Reunion Show
The good folks at Vinyl Me, Please have some good news for True School lovers of hip-hop. On Jan. 20th, they will be reissuing the 25th anniversary vinyl of Main Source‘s debut album, Breaking Atoms. In addition to being able to get your hands on an early ’90s classic, Main Source will also join Just Blaze as the night’s host for a reunion celebration at New York City’s legendary S.O.B.s.
The festivities are slated to kick off Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 8:00 p.m., and will mark Large Professor, K-Cut and producer Rashad Smith‘s first live performance in over a decade. The first 50 general admission guests to the show will be showered with a limited edition ’47 CLEAN UP hat, which was made custom for the special hip-hop event. Any would be hip-hop historian worth their weight in dookie rope chains would be happy to have this Golden Era treasure which featured the classic hits “Looking At The Front Door,” “Just Hangin’ Out” and Nas’s first appearance on wax with “Live At The BBQ”.
The Breaking Atoms reissue will also include a color-in-color vinyl, a bonus 7″ record, gatefold packaging, a foreword written by Pharoahe Monch, a 12-page lyric booklet to show to the kiddies, and an original art print. “25 years later, many of the lyrics on Breaking Atoms are still relevant, and the beats are hip-hop masterpieces. It’s time to separate the past from the future and move forward,” Large Pro told us exclusively through an emailed statement. K-Cut and producer Rashad Smith echoed LP’s sentiment, saying, “We are excited to release Breaking Atoms after 25 years with Vinyl Me, Please. It is a joy to see that people still appreciate this record and we’re looking forward to doing the reunion show in New York City after all these years.”
“All of our friends who participated on the album are coming out to support us and it feels like we are starting all over again! It is great to reconnect and perform as a group again and we want to thank our true fans, please come out and enjoy the show! Peace to everyone in the nation, peace all over the world — it’s a blessing!”
Cop your tickets now here before it is too late and if you see us at the show, don’t forget to say, “Whattup tho!”
