iTunes Review

In many ways, Quality Control is a product of its time. When it was released in June of 2000, the boom was cresting, the Y2K bug was a joke (not a threat), and the good times seemed endless. J5 were the darlings of 1990s “alternative” rap, and by the time they released this hotly anticipated full-length debut, they’d been toiling in the underground for nearly seven years. Decidedly, even defiantly, old school, Quality Control is a triumph of flow, unity, and positive vibrations--a cheerful party record that is a testament to the power of simplicity. Featuring four rappers and two DJs, it surges with a fresh, exciting, organic sound and boasts deft vocal interplay, soulful, straightforward beats, and the seamless cohesion of the two. Look no further than the Cut Chemist-produced title track, which glides across samples from ‘70s filthy funkster Blowfly and showcases J5’s trademark mix of group vocals and solo spitting. “The Influence,” produced by DJ Nu-Mark, is an anti-bling manifesto that borrows part of its melody from ‘50s jazz vocal group the Hi-Lo’s, of all people. “Jurass Finish First,” another Nu-Mark beat, cops a ‘50s snippet from West Coast jazzman Shelly Manne. Although there are a few “message” tracks, the album’s levity is its greatest asset.

Original Beats With Real, Live MC's. Check This Out!!!!!..

Quality old skool hip-hop. J5 never cease to amaze with their serious rythm, proper ryhmes, natural skill and tongue-twister speed. 50 cent could only dream of being this good. THIS IS WHAT HIP-HOP SHOULD BE LIKE! Listen up to the old skool beats provided by Nu Mark and Cut Chemist who perform the impossible with records. ( check them out live). If you've never heard a J5 track before (try The Game), you're missing out on pure natural talent and possibly the best hip-hop voice ever in the shape of Chali 2na. You'll know when you hear it. BUY THIS ALBUM!!!! and their others too!

Full Length J5!

Life doesn't actually get much better.

Though there's actually six of them, Jurassic 5 got everything else right on their self-titled debut EP. Part of the new rap underground of the late '90s (along with Company Flow, Mos Def, Dr. Octagon, and Sir Menelik), the sextet -- rappers Marc 7even, Chali 2na, Zaakir, and Akil, plus producers Cut Chemist and DJ Nu-Mark -- came together in 1993 at the Los Angeles café/venue named the Good Life. The six members were part of two different crews, Rebels of Rhythm and Unity Committee; after collaborating...
