Jurassic 5 is the globally renowned, six-piece hip-hop act featuring Chali 2na, Marc 7 and Cut Chemist (formerly The Unity Community), Akil and Zaakir (formerly Rebels of Rhythm) and later, DJ Nu-Mark. Founded in 1993 via Los Angeles underground rap hub the Good Life, they are widely respected standard-bearers of hip-hop culture. J5 disbanded in 2007 but reunited in 2013 for Coachella. In April, the legends performed at Glastonbury. Tonight's show is one of the first stops on their 20-date North American tour and features legendary hip-hop peers Dilated Peoples, who are set to drop their forthcoming Directors of Photography sometime this year.
