Jurassic 5 Tour News and Updates
2014 Word of Mouth Tour
Rappers from Rebels of Rhythm and Unity Committee (Chali 2na, Akil, Saakir, Marc 7, as well as DJ/Producers Nu-Mark and Cut Chemist) joined forces in Los Angeles to create Jurassic 5 in the early 1990s. This six-member tribe highlighted the alternative hip-hop movement of the decade and forever changed both the underground and popular rap scheme. The group mixed nostalgic hip-hop with experimental rap for a wholly fresh sound, dropping innovative song after song across four studio albums, before breaking up in 2007.
Six years later, the groundbreaking alt rap group reunited for the Coachella Music festival and subsequent tour of Europe and the US. Now, two decades after their formation, Jurassic 5 will embark on another massive tour, this time titled "Word of Mouth." J5 not only gained traction for their original cuts, but also for the dynamic and cohesive flow between members on stage. This burgeoned their fanbase and wires their reputation even today, as Jurassic 5 is now the subject of an upcoming documentary surrounding their rise to immortal status.
If you want to hear unforgettable rhymes by veteran rappers, then Jurassic 5 tickets are for you. Other legendary acts like Dilated Peoples and Beat Junkies will be along for the ride in 2014. The "Word of Mouth" Tour will kick start July 7 in Reno, NV and hit Berkeley, Los Angeles, Tempe, Kansas City, Columbus, Chicago, Pittsburgh and New York, before closing out in Boston on Aug 3.
