Jurassic 5 Calling It Quits?
College radio legends Jurassic 5 could be finished after
nearly fifteen years together. The five-piece collective, who recentlyreleased their
fourth studio album Feedback without longtime DJ/producer Cut
Chemist, remain on tour overseas despite any internal problems. "After the
tour, that's basically it," emcee Zaakir told Australian website News.com.au, "I don't want to sit here and
fake around with it - we're not seeing eye-to-eye right now."
Despite the successof Feedback, which peaked at 15 on the Billboard 200 off the strength of a collaboration with singer Dave Matthews, the departure of Cut Chemist might be a deciding factor in the break-up. "When it comes down to it, some people herewant their own shine, their own thing. If that's what you want, I say more power to you." Cut Chemist's recent solo LP The Audience's Listening was a critical success.
"People see us as a harmonizing, loving group," said Zaakir, "but that's far from the truth."
