09 Jul SoulTrain.com Q&A – Jurassic 5’s Chali 2na
Akil, Zaakir, Marc 7, Chali 2na, DJ Nu-Mark and Cut Chemist are back. Seven years has passed since the release of Jurassic 5’s fourth and “final” album, Feedback,sans Cut Chemist. As this year marks the 20th Anniversary of the group’s first project, the Los Angeles-based collective have decided to go on a twenty-date tour in celebration which kicked off early this month. Alongside the tour and upcoming full-length documentary, the group, known for their hit single “Quality Control,” recently dropped “The Way We Do It.” Produced by the iconic Heavy D, the track is the first time all original six members of Jurassic 5 have recorded together in over a decade.
Chali 2na, smooth baritone spitter of Jurassic 5, speaks with SoulTrain.com about the reunion, Heavy D and whether or not to expect new material in the future.
