Jurassic 5 was part of the last wave of conscious rap to make it on major labels. The movement began with De La Soul in the late '80s and pretty much died in 2006, with J5's album Feedback. Now, Cut Chemist, Chali 2na and the rest of crew reunite for a headline tour. They only broke up in 2007, so we hadn't really even noticed they were gone, but it's nice to have their laid back, daisy age-style hip hop back nonetheless.
