Now that the Meow The Jewels Kickstarter page has raised over $60,000, El-P and Killer Mike need to get down to business re-recording their album using only cat sounds as music. They already have an incredible lineup of producers ready to get to work, but the real task (obviously) will be choosing the right cats.
has just released a ridiculous/incredible new video of himself going to a Brooklyn animal shelter to “audition” potential feline contributors; the clip basically consists of his failed attempts to coax meows out of cats while rapping at them and holding an iPhone to their faces. Check it out below:
Run The Jewels’ non-cat album, RTJ2, is out October 28 via Mass Appeal and will feature contributions from Blink 182’s Travis Barker and Rage Against The Machine’s Zack de la Rocha, among others.
