Jurassic 5 announce split

The rap collective are to part ways

Jurassic 5 are to split after nearly 15 years together.

Member Soup revealed that the band will break up after a brief tour of Australia and Japan.

He said: “After the tour, that’s basically it. I don’t want to sit here and fake around with it – we’re not seeing eye to eye right now. People see us a harmonising, loving group, but that’s far from the truth.

Soup revealed that the reason for the break up is the desire for a certain member to go solo.

He said: “Some people here want their own shrine, their own thing. If that’s what you want, I say more power to you. I hope it works out for you – just don’t come up with lame excuses.”

The group originally began as a six-piece in 1993, and released the acclaimed ’Jurassic 5’ EP in 1997.

DJ Cut Chemist left the group in early 2006, while their third album ’Feedback’ was released in July of that year, reports SOHH.
