Jurassic 5 knows a thing or two about Hip Hop during the 1990s and part of what they were able to enjoy was good album sales and perform at well-attended shows.
During a recent interview with HipHopDX Senior Features writer Ural Garrett, Marc 7 explained how album sales were more important than doing shows, which has become a contrast over the last few years in the culture.
“The shows was secondary,” he said via a segment of today’s (July 27) DX Daily. “People had attitudes. Some stars were whatever to the fans. Now it’s switched where it’s the live show [is important] and everybody wants to do shows and it kind of switched to where they kind of have to give back to the fans, which is something we’ve been doing since day one. We didn’t have to adjust to that.”
The Jurassic 5 emcee also explained how some artists don’t need to tour as much due to good album sales and chart placements. Marc says that his group has performed with artists like that in the past.
“We’ve actually performed with a lot of artists that didn’t have to go out and do shows because they had record sales that was generating money,” he explained. “That’s not the case anymore. Now you see everybody generating tours. It’s about getting shows now so it’s fun to watch that kind of flip.”
