Run The Jewels Are Remaking ‘RTJ2’ Using Nothing But Cat Noises

Meow The Jewels

The internet can do magical things. When Run The Jewels‘ El-P said he would remake the rap duo’s newest album using only cat sounds if someone bought a deluxe edition (costing $40,000), he never thought the goal would be met. Low and behold, it was.

The RTJ2 remake, titled Meow The Jewels, brought in all $40,000 thanks to a fan-created Kickstarter. When El-P found out it existed, he pledged all the money earned would be given to charity should it reach its goal. He roped in top tier talent to help produce: Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, Just Blaze, Zola Jesus, Baauer, Prince Paul, Dan The Automator, Boots, the Alchemist, Skywlkr, and Nick Hook. With 12 days left to reach $40,000, the crowdfunding brought in $46,210.

Considering he agreed to donate the original $40,000 and RTJ2 was free, too, it’s probably worth it to hop over to the site and donate some money. You can do so here.
