Jurassic 5: Quality Control

The major label debut from this veteran L.A. Crew has been as well received as it was eagerly awaited. The J-5 flavor is a toast to the classic elements of hip-hop: funk, epic sensibility, upfull humor and bomb DJ’s. “Quality Control” is both polished and infectious, with compelling mike work from the four MC’s, and some textbook turntablism from Cut Chemist and DJ Nu-Mark.
