Image: 1595229 These two songs, off Jurassic 5’s stellar debut full-length from 2000, perfectly
showcase the disciplined hip-hop fun that this six-man group is known for around the
world. 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 powerfully
as 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 Show
in the mid-1990s, the song “Quality Control” was expertly expanded for the group’s
Interscope debut, with a pimp-strut beat and a relaxed, live feel. Alternating tag-team
lines and an extended four-man unison chorus combine to flaunt an indie ethos that
also gained them mainstream appeal. “We got the kind of rhymes / To get you ready for
the 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 the
original “Quality Control” single jacket, is a taste of what is coming soon with Get On
Down’s Record Store Day 2015 Deluxe Reissue Quality Control - The Wood Box. Available from 13.03.2015
