On this day in hip-hop history, Main Source dropped their debut album, Breaking Atoms.
The three man group Main Source, released their debut album, Breaking Atoms, on Wild Pitch Records on July 23, 1991. Toronto DJs K-Cut and Sir Scratch, along with legendary Queens producer MC Large Professor, self-produced the album and pushed hip-hop to new heights.
Breaking Atoms spawned a few classic hits, including the chart topping single "Looking at the Front Door," as well as the singles "Peace Is Not the Word to Play," and "Watch Roger Do His Thing." The album stayed on the charts for 30 weeks and peaked at #40 on the R&B chart.
Breaking Atoms takes credit for being the first to feature the legendary MC, Nas, on the track "Live at the Barbeque."
