Run the Jewels Cat-Rap Album

First, some background. Last year, Run the Jewels made a joke that for $40,000 they’d make an all-cat version of their Run the Jewels 2 album. A quick Kickstarter campaign later, the duo had $60,000 and no choice but to follow through. So they did.

Run the Jewels - Meow the Jewels

Meow the Jewels–featuring production work of Geoff Barrow from Portishead, 3D of Massive Attack and others–is now available as a free download.  Good God! Zack de la Rocha from Rage Against the Machine is on the record! Here’s a sample.
