Jurassic 5 EP was the first official release by American hip hop group Jurassic 5. It was an EP that included much of the material that would later appear on Jurassic 5.

Release[edit]

The first version to be released contained nine tracks and was available in CD single or double-12" single formats. It was released in October 1997 on the band's own short-lived label, Rumble Records.

Although the label only released one record, it did give the band a platform and allowed them to be heard.

"I urge every independent artist to put something out first. Prove yourself to yourself, to people that pick up the records, then the [labels] will come looking for you. If they know that you can score, they gonna pass the ball to you." — Akil[3]

The band signed to a major label, Interscope Records in 1999. Their first release on Interscope was the re-issue of the Jurassic 5 EP in an 8 track version in 1999. This had the same listing as the original EP, excluding the final track "Blacktop Beat".
