Jurassic 5 is a six-piece hip-hop group that was shaped in 1993 at the Los Angeles, California scene Good Life. Rappers Chali 2na, Akil, Zaakir otherwise known as Soup, Mark 7even, and turntable maestros DJ Nu-Mark and DJ Cut Chemist met up from two separate groups, the Rebels of Rhythm and Unity Committee. Cut Chemist left the band in 2006 to seek after a performance vocation, anyway he returned in 2013 when the gathering “improved” so as to perform at different shows.
The gathering appeared for TVT Records in 1995 with the single for Unified Rebelution. Their acclaimed position during the 1990s elective hip-hop development, nearby craftsmen including Company Flow, Black Star and Kool Keith, was affirmed when the Jurassic 5 EP was discharged in December 1997.
The EP was later repackaged with extra tracks and discharged in December 1998 as the band’s full-length debut collection, entitled Jurassic 5 LP.
The tracks beheld back to the old school mentality of New York’s Native Tongues Posse, the original late 1980s alliance of craftsmen who reaffirmed rap’s social plan, which included De La Soul, the Jungle Brothers and A Tribe Called Quest. This was apparent on the tune Concrete Schoolyard (“Let’s return it to the solid boulevards/Original beats from genuine live MCs”), and the collection even furnished the troupe with an unexpected UK Top 40 single when it achieved number 35 in November 1998. The other emerge track, Jayou, was worked around a trancelike woodwind circle from Pleasure Web’s Music Man Part 1 (Music Man Part 1).
In 1999, Jurassic 5 marked to Interscope Records, who re-discharged the Jurassic 5 EP. This was trailed by their second collection (their first on a noteworthy name), Quality Control.
In 2002, they discharged their third collection, Power In Numbers, which was trailed by visiting with the recently resuscitated Lollapalooza celebration in the late spring of 2003.
Their most recent collection, Feedback, was discharged on July 25, 2006.
