When Run the Jewels released their second album late last year, they joked that there was a special bonus package (at a thrifty cost of $40,000) titled Meow the Jewels, featuring the songs re-mixed with the sounds of cats.
The joke took on a life of its own, however, when some fans created a Kickstarter campaign to raise the fee, and actually ended up topping it by $25,000. Called on their joke, the rap duo (which includes Atlantan Killer Mike) obviously felt compelled to follow through, and have released the first track from the once non-existent album. You can hear “Meowrly,” the inaugural cut (a kittyfied remix of RTJ2’s “Early), here: https://soundcloud.com/byalai/meowrly-meow-the-jewels
By the way, Run the Jewels have pledged to donate the fan-created Kickstarter’s $65,000 total take to charity. Cat rescue and adoption efforts, perhaps?
