Following the well received Breaking Atoms album, which introduced the world to the talents of Large Professor, Sir Scratch and K-Kut, as well as early cameos from Akinyele and Nasty Nas, Main Source contributed the addictive “Fakin’ The Funk” to the White Men Can’t Jump soundtrack and declared “Main Source forever, yo!” on their feature with the Brand New Heavies.
The second album, The Science, had several completed tracks and demos in the can when it was previewed by The Source magazine, until Large Pro decided that working with a group that was managed by the other two member’s mom made as much sense as Shaquille O’Neil rapping and broke north. The McKenzie brothers would eventually recruit Queens street battle legend Mikey D to take over vocal duties, and even re-recorded “Hellavision” for the doomed Fuck What U Think album, leaving fans to forever speculate on what might have been if Paul Juice had stuck around.
Thanks to a handful of limited-edition 7″ pressings, Japanese re-issues, record label compilations and bootlegs, I’ve been able to assemble eight cuts that represent the sound of Main Source’s lost sophomore project.
