These two songs, off Jurassic 5’s stellar debut full-length from 2000, perfectlyshowcase the disciplined hip-hop fun that this six-man group is known for around theworld. Featuring two DJs and producers (Cut Chemist and DJ Nu-Mark) and four MCs(Chali 2na, Zaakir/Soup, Akil and Marc 7), these disparate minds combined powerfullyas one, rocking unison lyrical lines and tag-team verses over deftly funky music.Originally heard as a hugely popular radio promo for California’s famed Wake Up Showin the mid-1990s, the song “Quality Control” was expertly expanded for the group’sInterscope debut, with a pimp-strut beat and a relaxed, live feel. Alternating tag-teamlines and an extended four-man unison chorus combine to flaunt an indie ethos thatalso gained them mainstream appeal. “We got the kind of rhymes / To get you ready forthe weekend,” they exclaim, and no one would dare deny it.This “big-hole” 45 pressing on black vinyl, with a 7-inch sized artwork replication of theoriginal “Quality Control” single jacket, is a taste of what is coming soon with Get OnDown’s Record Store Day 2015 Deluxe Reissue Quality Control - The Wood Box.

Jurassic 5 flexed serious old-to-the-new muscles in the ‘90s, beginning with their independently released single “Unified Rebelution” in 1994, and book-ending with their stellar debut full-length: 2000’s Quality Control. They walked a tightrope between underground and mainstream hip-hop, and toured alongside rap peers as well as punk rockers on the Vans Warped Tour. With double the pleasure of your average hip-hop group – two DJs and producers (Cut Chemist and DJ Nu-Mark); and four MCs (Chali 2na, Akil, Marc 7 and Zaakir aka Soup) – they brought the late 1970s “unison MC” style of pioneering groups like the Fantastic 5 and the Force MCs to a new generation. Even more surprisingly, they did so out of Los Angeles, whose hip-hop flavors generally leaned towards Gangsta, G-Funk or Electro lines. Musically inventive and lyrically forward-thinking, each song on Quality Control is a new adventure, exploring engaging territory, delivered via one of the best live hip-hop shows fans had seen in years. From singles like the strutting groove of the title track to the throwback doo-wop samples on “The Influence” and the catchy, keyboard groove-driven “World of Entertainment (WOE Is Me),” to deeper album tracks like the lyrical gymnastics of “Jurass Finish First” and the thought-provoking “Lausd,” Jurassic 5 consistently stepped to the plate and their fans responded in kind, nearly pushing the album to Gold status. Add the innovative DJ-and-sample workout which closes out the album, “Swing Set,” and you have one of the 2000s’ most unique and solid full-length platters.
