Jurassic 5 reunites at Coachella (Created August 9, 2013)
Considered one of hip-hop underground's leading names, Jurassic 5 was formed in 1993 at a small venue in Los Angeles called Good Life. But who knew the name of the venue would be a bit of a prophecy for this band that has somehow survived (off-and-on) two decades in the industry.
Of course the last 20 years hasn't all been sunshine and roses for the band, which broke up in 2007 over "musical differences" and wouldn't be in the midst of a reunion tour today had it not been for their management team. The rekindling of the band took place at Coachella after the guys got back together and confirmed there was no 'bad blood' between them.
One would think some six years apart would mean that Jurassic 5 was only dipping its toes back into the water slowly, but that's not the case. The group plans to spend the remainder of 2013 touring, as they are currently scheduled for festivals around the world including Parklife in the U.K., Sonar Fest in Spain, Fuji Rock in Japan, and Lisbon, Portugal's Optimus Festival. They plan to film the entire process of rehearsals and behind-the-scenes stuff for a documentary to be released in the near future.
Jurassic 5 debuted nationally in 1995 with rappers Chali 2na, Akil Zaakir, Mark 7even, and DJs Nu-Mark and Cut Chemist. They were at the forefront of the late 90s new wave of underground rap and ultimately released four albums. The last was "Feedback," released in July 2006.
