Jurassic 5 is No More

Members of Jurassic 5, one of the better groups to have come along in years, have decided to part ways due to (you guessed it) creative differences.

Apparently, the exclusive breakup news was broken up by DJ Semtex over the weekend, even though Zaakir had already announced the split a month ago.

Update: According to J5's manager, the announcement in Australia (referenced above) was that Charlie 2 Na wouldn’t be involved in the next project and not that J5 would be splitting. The group's breakup was officially announced on BBC 1Xtra.

Despite what their manager said, Zaakir sounded bitter in that interview:
"Some might say business, some might say merchandising, whatever, there's some really stupid s***--some really childish things--happening. [But] 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. I hope it works out for you--just don't come up with lame excuses [for J5's demise]."
Too bad they couldn't "Get It Together."
