Throwback Friday #6 – Lollapalooza Alumni

20 years ago, Perry Farrell and others created what would become a cultural phenomena, Lollapalooza. The annual tour lasted until 1997, revived in 2003. One of the headliners of newly revived Lollapalooza tour was Jurassic 5.

Jurassic 5, or J5 as they are commonly referred, formed in 1993 as the union between two crews, Rebels of Rhythm and Unity Committee, who came together to record and release the spontaneous, one-off single cleverly titled “Unified Rebelution.” The six-man group, which includes four rappers and two deejays, brings an uplifting, funloving feel to a genre that often glamorizes thuggish behavior, gangster ethics, and blatant materialism.It was an infectious record that made an indelible impression with true hip-hop heads, quickly becoming a staple on the college radio and mix-show circuit. In 2000, Jurassic 5 made their major-label debut with “Quality Control.”
