Work It Out
The First single to be released by Jurassic 5 is called Work it Out, taken from their new album Feedback.
The Single provides the first surprise with a chorus by Dave Matthews, the result of the two bands touring together recently. The track is a mellow moment in the middle of an otherwise electric album that also features Mos Def on Where We At and the production skills of Scott Storch (Eminem, 50 Cent), Salaam Remi (Nas, Fugees) and Exile. The album closes, in traditional J5 stlye, with a showcase for Nu-Mark's talents in the form of the instrumental Canto De Ossanha.
When Jurassic 5 first emerged, on their self-financed 1997 ep, they were a shot in the arm for hip hop with their combination of unique voices, novel approach to samples from all areas and politically conscious lyrics. That ep became the basis for 1998's Jurassic 5 LP with 2000's Quality Control and 2002's Power In Numbers soon following, to equal critical acclaim.
