Hip-Hop Fridays: Main Source "Fuck What You Think"
Released in 1994, "Fuck What You Think" is the second and final album from Main Source, and, unfortunately, doesn't feature Large Professor, who was a major part of their underground smash "Breaking Atoms". The group, however, still manage to hold their own without Large Professor on the production. K-Cut, who took over production on the album, picks up on the obscure jazz and soul tip that Large Professor had provided for the debut. Check The Breaks sample sources for a taste. Oddly enough, the lead single off the album, 'What You Need', caught the ear of Madonna and she quickly used it as a sample for her 1994 single 'Human Nature' (both tracks posted below), though it failed to crack the top 40. Anyways, consider "Fuck What You Think" a primer for next week's post, which will be Main Source's debut.
