Jurassic 5 is the debut album by American hip hop group Jurassic 5. The material from the Jurassic 5 EP plus a few additional tracks were repackaged as an album and released by Pan Records as Jurassic 5 in 1998.

NME named it the 9th best album of 1998.[3]

Background[edit]

The correct title is simply Jurassic 5, although in some listings it is referred to wrongly as the Jurassic 5 LP, as "LP" confusingly appears on the album sleeve (including the CD version) artwork, which was used to distinguish it from the Jurassic 5 EP.

The Jurassic 5 logos on both the album and the EP were designed by Chali 2na.
