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. The following year, Jurassic 5 were picked up by a major label, Interscope Records. 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". Thereafter, they released their major label debut album, Quality Control, in June 2000.
The album is sometimes listed with a track entitled "Cuts and Scratches" inserted before the last track. The song "Improvise" appears in the hit videogame Jet Grind Radio on the American and European (known as Jet Set Radio) releases. The song "Jayou" appears in the PlayStation game Grind Session and in DJ Hero.
