Pioneers of the 90s underground rap movement, Jurassic 5 are known for their alternative, grime-fuelled hip-hop sound and potent lyrics. Briefly parting ways in 2007, Jurassic 5 reformed in 2013, making their big comeback at California's celebrated Coachella Festival. Known for their energetic live performances, avid fans and newcomers alike will revel in Jurassic 5's comeback to London.
Debuting in 1995, they released their first record in 1997 and since then have recorded four more albums, each critically acclaimed and with iconic songs like Concrete Schoolyard and Jayou. Jurassic 5 are lyrical masters, telling stories with street-smart wit and poetry, while enriching the rap genre with big band sounds.
