Jurassic 5 – Concrete Schoolyard (1998)

Taken from self titled 1998 Lp on PAN records,

from wiki

Jurassic 5 came together from two separate crews, the Rebels of Rhythm and Unity Committee. The group formed at the Los Angeless, California health store the Good Life Cafee, where they performed at the open mic nights along with Good Life regulars such as Freestyle Fellowship,Abstract Rude and many others. According to Cut Chemist, “The Lp was a renaissance period in hip hop.”

5 signed to Interscope Records who re-released the Jurassic 5 EP. This was followed by their second album (their first on a major label), Quality Control

  1. Commercial as it is, I always loved Quality Control. A real gem in the rough for the time.

  2. Still the best J5 album in my opinion…I discovered them with this and since then been getting every album…
