In an age where hip-hop seems to have lost some of its roots, Jurassic 5 are a six-piece crew from Los Angeles keeping the old skool spirit alive. Their live shows are energetic, tightly performed, can't-miss affairs that emanate infectious vibes.
The alternative hiphop group featuring rappers Chali 2na, Akil, Zaakir, Mark 7even and DJ Nu-Mark and Cut Chemist first formed in 1993 and debuted nationally in 1995 with their first single, "Unified Rebelution". Their eponymous full length debut album entitled Jurassic 5 was realised in 1998 and three albums followed including ‘Quality Control’, ‘Power in Numbers’ and ‘Feedback’, the latter two peaking at number 15 on the Billboard 200 chart. The group disbanded in 2007 following their final EP.
In April 2013 the full line up reunited again and appeared at numerous festivals around the world.
