Jurassic 5 In a Nutshell: like they say on their 2002 single “What’s Golden”—”We’re not ballin’ or shot-callin’ / We take it back to the days of yes y’allin’”
What That Means: they’re not worried about staying on top of the trends; they just want to bring hip-hop back to its Golden Age
Other Hits From Their 20+ Year Career: “Quality Control,” “Linguistics,” “W.O.E. Is Me (World of Entertainment),” “Jayou”
What Else They’re Known For: introducing the decidedly funky conscious rap of the underground Native Tongues movement to L.A.’s largely gangsta scene
Most Common Misconception About The Group: its size—Jurassic 5 consists of four MCs (Marc 7even, Zaakir, Akil, and Chali 2na) and two DJs (Cut Chemist and DJ Nu-Mark)
Solo Projects: Chali 2na’s bone-shaking bass rhymes have been heard on Blackalicious and Morcheeba tracks, Cut Chemist is known for both his solo work and his collaborations with DJ Shadow, and DJ Nu-Mark produced a number of Lonely Island tracks
