The hip-hop crew formed in 1993 in Los Angeles, California; Jurassic 5 will launch their new video for "Work It Out," the lead single from their forthcoming album ‘Feedback’, this week to music television channels around the world.

The video is a clever hip-hop lampoon which targets the US Government as it follows a gleeful President George W. Bush on a jog around downtown Los Angeles. Along the way, he rocks out on his Ipod to the tunes of J5, taunts the unemployed, raises gas prices, urinates in public, and exercises with Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

The song, "Work It Out" features the Dave Matthews Band and is the result of a strong relationship that J5 and the signer/songwriter developed while touring together over the past few years. The politically charged hip-hop video highlights Jurassic 5's commitment to innovation and taste for the unconventional. Rap artists Akil, Zaakir, Nu-Mark, Marc 7, and Chali 2na make only brief, almost inconspicuous appearances, complementing the satire and allowing President Bush to run his course.

Feedback follows J5's acclaimed releases Power in Numbers and the certified gold Quality Control. DJ/Producer Nu-Mark handles most of the album's production, including the standout tracks "Future Sound," "Red Hot," and "Where We At," which features a vocal bit from rap artist Mos Def. Super producers Scott Storch ("Brown Girl") and Salaam Remi ("Radio" and "Get It Together") and up-and-comers Exile and Bean One also contribute impressive tracks.

In conjunction with the release of Feedback J5 launched a massive nationwide tour this week hitting every major city in the United States. The tour kicked off in Seattle on July 18th, and wraps up with a stop at the House of Blues in Las Vegas on September 13th. See remaining dates below.
