08. Jurassic 5 – “Customer Service”

Jurassic 5

It’s been a decade since Jurassic 5 last released an album, but with several live shows on the horizon, the rap group teamed together to release a new song. “Customer Service” comes from the group’s Power in Numbers recording sessions. Technically, that means it’s not a new recording, but the unheard track drops right into their usual fusion of culturally informed verses and thick funk, so it feels like it is anyway. All five members trade verses, most sticking to their usual cadence on sports shoes and Cadillacs, which a sample of Edwin Birdsong’s “The Spirit Of Do…Do” guides with vintage bass and occasional soul guitar strums. It’s the perfect return to form by one of rap’s most iconic groups. —Nina Corcoran
