It articulates emotions and brings […]

The Music That Moved Me In 2014

This time last year, my life was more hectic than ever before. I was working three jobs, trudging through my final semester of college, and doing my best to prepare for life as a “real adult.” Fatigue was in fashion, uncertainty reigned supreme, and on top of it all, I couldn’t afford to take my […]

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

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 […]

Today, we get a proper 90-second teaser of that same track, which we now know is tentatively entitled “Blockbuster Night Part 1.” With an absolutely nasty beat and comedically angsty lines like “I Jake The Snake ’em […]
