Track Of The Day: Jurassic 5 - 'The Way We Do It'

Jurassic 5 are without a doubt one of the finest hip hop acts of the last couple of decades, reconnecting with old skool values during a time when the genre was otherwise being diluted, homogenised and tediously gangsta-fied. After releasing four top quality albums, the group went their separate ways in 2007 following a series of disagreements between the members, but announced their reunion last year in 2013. 

With lots of shows and festivals planned for this year, Jurassic 5 are going to hit the UK in June, and to mark their return they have released the exclusive 'The Way We Do It'. Although it's a brand new release, it's evidently not a newly recorded track, as it was produced by the late Heavy D, who passed away in 2011. It was most likely recorded during sessions for their final album, 2006's 'Feedback', and is based around a sample of The White Stripes' 'My Doorbell'.
