Meow The Jewels, the feline-sampling remix of RTJ2 (last year’s best album), is here. This cat rap project began as a joke deluxe edition of the second Run The Jewels album until a fan launched a successful Kickstarter to crowdfund the $40k to make it happen. Over the past year El-P and Killer Mike have shared previews featuring Massive Attack, Zola Jesus, Baauer, and others, and now the full collection is out on the eve of their fall tour. Download the album for free at runthejewels.net and/or pre-order the 12″ here (it’s tawny-brown vinyl with faux fur on the cover). All proceeds go to charity. Check out the tracklist and stream it below.
