The album is remembered as a one of the last seminal records of the golden age of hip-hop, viewed as as a significantly influential to hip-hop for introducing the world to rapper/producer Large Professor and marking the debut of legendary Queens rapper, Nas. Such a debut, is widely remembered as one of the greatest debuts in hip-hop history, as well as, being credited as the spark that launched Nas to becoming one of the most decorated MCs of all time.
The group comprised of Large Professor, Sir Scratch and K-Cut, haven't toured for XX years so these shows are going to be a very unique opportunity to see such legends of the hip-hop world.
Breaking Atoms was pivotal in the lengthy and rich career of Large Professor going on to become one of the most celebrated producers of all time, producing tracks for Mobb Deep, Busta Rhymes, A Tribe Called Quest and of course Nas' masterful Illmatic.
