College radio legends Jurassic 5 could be finished after nearly fifteen years together. The five-piece collective, who recently released their fourth studio album Feedback without longtime DJ/producer Cut Chemist, remain on tour overseas despite any internal problems. “After the tour, that’s basically it,” emcee Zaakir told Australian website News.com.au, “I don’t want to sit here and fake around with it – we’re not seeing eye-to-eye right now.”
Despite the success of Feedback, which peaked at 15 on the Billboard 200 off the strength of a collaboration with singer Dave Matthews, the departure of Cut Chemist might be a deciding factor in the break-up. “When it comes down to it, some people here want their own shine, their own thing. If that’s what you want, I say more power to you.” Cut Chemist‘s recent solo LP The Audience’s Listening was a critical success.
“People see us as a harmonizing, loving group,” said Zaakir, “but that’s far from the truth.”
