Jurassic 5 have shared their first single in eight years, a Heavy D production (may he rest in peace) that samples the White Stripes and sounds like it was torn from one of their earlier, Dave Matthews-free efforts. (Let’s just say Cut Chemist was missed on the group’s last LP — 2006′s Feedback — and his full participation this time around is welcome indeed.) Not only that; “The Way We Do It” arrives on the heels of a full scale “Word of Mouth” tour announcement, featuring such fellow indie rap icons as Dilated Peoples and the Beat Junkies. Guess last year’s Coachella appearance was not a one-off, after all. The next thing you know, people will actually be talking about ‘turntablism’ again. Hopefully the divisive days of ‘backpack rap’ are over, however.
