You would think after Run the Jewels delivered one of the most critically acclaimed rap albums of 2014, they'd give themselves a little rest to start the New Year. But that would be wrong.
They've got a new mission, after all: Meow the Jewels.
For the uninitiated, Meow the Jewels started off as a joke, and then became very, very real.
“I was sitting at a table and I was just joking around and I just decided, on the spur of the moment, to come up with a bunch of obviously completely ridiculous and joke pre-order options, one of which was, that for $40,000, we will remix the record using nothing but cat sounds and call it Meow the Jewels,” El-P said back in October.
Turns out it wasn't all that ridiculous. The goal was met -- and then some -- to be donated to charity.
Plus, producers like Just Blaze and Alchemist have signed on.
